A Veranda Highlight

We search high and low for the unique pieces we bring into our Nantucket Home line.  It's usually the small, family-owned manufacturers that catch our attention.  We gravitate towards them for many reasons namely ...their attention to detail, cutting edge determination, strive for quality product and of course, their friendly demeanor.

So we're always pleased to find out when they get national recognition.  Palecek, a manufacturer we've carried for 20 plus years, will be in Veranda magazine this month  (see above image) highlighting their Spa Collection.

Known for their eclectic materials, Allan Palecek started his company upon returning home from the Vietnam war.   Similar to Rick and Nan's story of how they began Nantucket Home, Allan too was intrigued by basket weaving and other crafts in Vietnam and wanted to share it.  What started as a small basket importing venture has turned into a large creative enterprise of designing, manufacturing and importing fascinating items from all over the world.  Every piece has a story with Palecek. 

Check out Veranda this month!
