Notes from Lands End

A Provincetown Design Crawl

July 16th, 2014

Design: to create, fashion, execute or construct according to plan.

Design: to create, fashion, execute or construct according to plan.

What makes a home and furniture crawl exciting is its context. How we live, the objects that define us, are highly personal. There are rooms to fill, update or change that reflect who we at home and at work. People often look for that signature piece - a chair, antique table, sofa, lamp or rug - while here in Provincetown.

There are many design stores along Commercial Street. This crawl is a taste of what is around. We want you to come out and see for yourself. Letís take a walk from West to East.

Provincetown Antique Market
131 Commerical Street
Internet free zone

The first time you enter the Provincetown Antique Market will not be your last. There is an exquisite vintage salt and pepper shaker collection, curios and antiques everywhere in no apparent order. Penny, a delightful fountain of knowledge about her finds, is a 2014 Cape Cod Life Winner.

140 Commercial Street

It feels like you are in Portugal when you step into this lovely shop. Exquisite pottery, dishes and table linens are made by Portuguese artisans to sell exclusively here. Proprietor Manuel A. Sousa makes great use of the compact space with pottery up to the ceiling.

Roots Home & Garden
193 Commercial Street

Owner Mike Rogala has wonderful employees, who directed me right over to a cubist leather chair on wheels. The showroom is eclectic, where a European flair meets a rustic sensibility. There are furnishings, lamps, accessories and a special collection of artisanal watches.

220 Commercial Street

Established nineteen years ago, WA (harmony) has a remarkable Japanese garden that soothes the soul in the thick of busy downtown. Owner Tom Rogers is a marvelous curator of mixed design modalities. Modern upholstery lives in complete accord with antiques from China and lamps by Ana Maia.

240 Commercial Street

A home furnishings and design studio, Herbert Acevedo is an interior designer who partners with architect Kevin Miller. They provide services to a loyal and growing group of clients. In this new location for three years, associate Pat Meads represents the showroom, with its wonderful tables and clean design.

Room 68
377 Commercial Street

With a flagship store in Jamaica Plain, this showcase for international designers (the Inesa Malafeh writing table is beautiful) just opened this season in the former Silk and Feathers. The entire local collection can be seen from the storefront windows, with wonderful chairs made of unexpected materials and shapes throughout.

393 Commercial Street

A 2014 Cape Cod Life Gold Winner, Utilities Kitchen.Bath.Home is a luscious store brimming with items, both essential and frivolous, for a home by the sea.

Coveted by many is the Thomas Paul Melamine Collection of plates with stylized maritime illustrations. Owner Dennis Lemanger continues the legacy of a store that is locally cherished.
