DesignMilk Travels to…The Sea Ranch

We were so happy to learn that DesignMilk - one of our favorite publications - included Placewares in its new feature on The Sea Ranch. Here's what they had to say:

The Sea Ranch is a secluded and small community, with the nearby town of Gualala primarily serving its residents and tourists in the dining and grocery departments. Shopping here is mostly limited to the practical, and if you’ve traveled this far it’s likely your plansfor escape don't include dedicating an entire day to retail therapy.

But there is one store worth dropping into for the modern design lover: Placewares. Design enthusiasts and Placewares owners. Shev Rush and Kevin Lane, have stocked the store guided by their keen eye for vintage pieces, timeless modern wares from the likes ofiittala, Marimekko, Heller, Chemex, Alessi, Normann Copenhagen, Bodum, and Chilewich, alongside some choice contemporary designs.

Placewares also hosts an adjoining art gallery, one extending their spotlight beyond local talent and toward artists, designers, and craftspeople spanning the entire Golden State. The store hints of the next chapter of The Sea Ranch, one honoring the region’s storied artistic, craft, design, and architectural past, but also looking toward a future inviting new figures inspired by the locale.

Read the Design Milk Feature, and check out the Placewares offerings below that were highlighted in the story!

Size Chart

Marimekko Sizing

Size charts can help you to determine your own size. When you order clothes, it is worth remembering that using a tape measure can help you to ensure that the clothes are a good fit. This will help you to avoid returning clothes unnecessarily. The pictures show where you should take measurements. The measurements on the size chart are fixed body measurements in inches. The measurements are for normal body shapes (the basis is the C measurement).
 

A – Collar:
The collar size is measured by placing the tape measure around the neck and placing the index finger between the tape measure and the throat. This measurement dictates the shirt size.

B – Bust:
The bust size is measured from the highest point of the bust when a bra is worn.

C – Waist:
The waist size is measured around the narrowest part of the waist.

D – Hip:
The hip measurement is taken from the broadest part of the hip.

E – Inside leg:
The inside leg measurement is taken from the crotch to the floor. Please note that the inside leg measurement of trousers is often provided in the product description.
