We Are Travelers By Design
The Grand Tour is an ever-changing trove of vintage and contemporary finds from around the world, each with a unique story waiting to be told. Look to your left and you might discover cashmere throws lovingly handwoven using raw fibers from Mongolia and Tibet. Or a fragrance might draw you to the right, where you’ll find candles made in Europe using scented molten wax and handcrafted vessels the same way they have been made for centuries. Or handmade recycled glass goblets we uncovered while on safari in the Serengeti. Sculptural lighting. Sustainable ceramics. Memphis designs from the 1980s living harmoniously with Campaign furniture that has only gotten finer with age.
Dearie—our muse in every way possible—instilled in us a curiosity about the world that knows no boundaries. She dedicated her life to giving unto others, all the while combining the salty wit of an irreverent comedienne with the panache and style of a bygone era. And so The Grand Tour personifies her—a design destination for those who approach life with gusto and an elegance that is matched only by a biting sense of humor. The consummate host. The discerning collector. The eternal giver. We’ve inherited not only her inquisitive nature and appreciation for good design, but also a longing to take our passion for the home and do some good with it.
XO, Caroline + Julie
