Full Circle

There’s no place like home for design studio and custom furnishings store, ANTHONY LAWRENCE HOME, which was based in Greenwich in the ’70s and recently moved back to town. The Calagna family, owners and longtime Greenwich residents, had moved their upholstery workroom to New York, where they have seventy employees, but recently decided to launch a retail space here. The new studio will continue to work with designers—ALEXA HAMPTON, THIERRY DESPONT, EMMA JANE PILKINGTON and KATIE RIDDER are among their clients—but also welcomes homeowners looking for custom sofas, window treatments, contemporary case goods, antiques or accents such as mirrors and pillows. The store is debuting its new line of luxury furnishings in fabric and leather upholstery and soon-to-be-introduced outdoor furniture, both collections created in collaboration with designer Nathan Andrew, who will also offer design services here. “Nathan is fun, warm, approachable and has a ‘who’s who’ client list,” says Amy Calagna, who encourages customers to bring in their floor plans. Looking to rehab a chair or sofa you already own? AL Home can recommend fabrics and have the piece redone in the New York workroom. Amy adds, “We’re going to bring a new look to Greenwich.” 139 Hamilton Avenue, 203-869-8820;
