Inside scoop on White Birch Studio

White Birch Studio has it all—from unique gifts to furnishings for the whole house. Incorporating a mixture of vintage, one-of-a-kind, and refurbished items, the showroom strikes a fine balance between modern and vintage, formal and casual. Hillary Fritz, the buying consultant to owner and head designer Susan Anderson, and designer Sara Gardner, says that their offerings feel “fresh, but fresh for a long time”—especially important since pieces that come with a heftier price tag need to have a lasting appeal. And you won’t have to look far to find something you’ll love among the studio’s eclectic offerings: The huge reclaimed wood table by the entrance is striking and versatile, perfect for a casual dinner with the kids or for a formal affair when decked out with fine china. Go ahead and try not to covet the Mad Men-esque leather writing table, perfectly staged with a bar set of shadow-grey glass. Not exactly an interior designer yourself? White Birch also offers design services—everything from broad plans to the nitty-gritty details. The studio has a separate design space, a kind of cozy library, where you’ll dream up your next big project with the designers. 3 Sconset Square, Westport, 203-557-9137, whitebirchstudio.com
