About Us

dwell New Haven opened in September, 2017. My vision was to create a shop with items for home, family, friends, baby and you!  Each product that fills the shop is hand-selected by me.  The ambiance and aesthetic are of upmost importance.  I selected vintage items to be used as store displays to create an appealing home vibe.  The store is an inviting collection of items that will entice you to take them home.  Objects from around the world adorn the shelves along with a focus on local makers. The merchandise is a colorful collection of kitchen & home, rich textiles,  luxurious bath and body items, super soft baby clothing, aromatic candles and more.  The dwell lifestyle is about surrounding yourself with treasures that bring you pleasure each and every day!

I also own idiom at 1014 Chapel Street; a woman's apparel, artisan jewelry & accessories boutique.  idiom is celebrating its 15th Year in Business this fall. You'll see familiar team members splitting time between both shops including our shop dog, Baxter.

New Haven is our backdrop.  We are so grateful for the beloved Community and to call 1022 Chapel Street our Home.  We are excited to connect with you through our web shop!
