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.
