Westport gets a dose of hip horticulture with the opening of Terrain
Last Thursday, I was lucky enough to get a first look at Terrain’s new Westport location at the shop’s Open Air Evening. I was truly blown away by the plethora of all things home and garden—everything from sweet soaps to living walls. The store curates a living aesthetic with green accents to infuse your space, indoors and out.
The factory-esque locale is dressed to the nines with attention to every detail. The spa section is housed in an old greenhouse acquired from Penn State University and outfitted with brick flooring. It contains goodies including delicately-wrapped soaps (perfect for a guest bathroom) and vintage-inspired apothecary products, as well as perfumes, bath salts and candles. The rest of the vast space holds a café and a seemingly endless array of home accessories, including furniture, books, hanging terrariums, vases, tableware and kitchen necessities.
What’s special about the Westport store is that it carries several exclusive lines. One is a collection of hand-blown glass terrariums designed by Vermont glassmaker Simon Pearce. Philadelphia textile designer Galbraith & Paul also collaborated with Terrain to create a fanciful-patterned upholstery line in exclusive colorways. Connecticut artist Bryan Nash Gill debuted a series of limited-edition relief prints, made from rescued wood and logs. Other Westport-exclusive collaborations include a furniture line (built from reclaimed materials) from Brooklyn’s Nightwood Furniture, local honey from Weston’s Red Bee apiaries, and New York artist Doug Johnston’s collection of hand-formed totes and baskets.
Outside, you’ll find an array of garden furniture and accessories, potted plants and hanging baskets. Is your thumb turning green yet?
