A word from Lillian August In 1985 I moved to New York to build on the success of my textile and wallcovering collections. My sons, Dan and John Weiss joined me in the business and we opened our first Connecticut store on Main Street in Westport in 1987.
Operated in the tradition of European design families, each of us are strongly individualistic and highly creative in different areas. The company today has five premier home furnishings and interior design stores headed by Dan and John. They focus on exceptional selection, talented interior designers, and superior customer service. As director of licensed designs for the Lillian August brand, I oversee and design our signature furniture, textile and accessory collections.
Lillian August is an artist, a painter, an interior designer, a textile designer and a furniture designer. Her new collection exemplifies attention to a sophisticated, vibrant and engaging lifestyle. From the classic European styles to the handcrafted antique reproductions called Antiquaire, a cosmopolitan sensibility is captured, perfect for the distinguished collector of fine furniture.
For over 20 years, Lillian August and her staff have designed the interiors of hundreds of fine homes throughout the United States.
From rambling estates to charming weekend retreats all of our clients share one thing in common — a “passion for living.”
All our stores are staffed with talented designers who look forward to meeting with you to discuss your design project and to introduce you to our design and custom services.
You'll also find additional information about those services here on our website.
