Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) October 24, 2012
The online boutiques of Local Hem, the boutique shopping platform, have introduced a new category this month: “For The Home.” The brand that launched the category, Peg + Dick, is carried by She Boutique of Marblehead, MA. The line consists of “fine art collectibles” featuring handmade decoupaged tabletop pieces in vintage themes.
The woman behind Peg + Dick, Karen Cappotto, is a Provincetown painter, originally from Syracuse, NY who, after years of study at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and Oxford University in England, took a soul-searching journey to her parents countries of origin: Ireland and Italy. Along the way, she picked up a newfound appreciation for her parents’ lineage and upon returning to the States, was inspired to create Peg + Dick (named after her parents). A brand that she has called “a suitable tribute to the age that her parents helped shape.”
Karen’s art involves taking vintage materials and “reworking the elements to create a new meaning.” A meaning that becomes clear upon seeing her work. Local Hem’s online boutique has introduced Peg + Dick as the first installment of their “For The Home” category, which includes the brand’s tabletop collection of decoupage plates and dishes. Whether it’s exotic birds, nautical flags or colorful florals, every piece in this collection is handmade and one-of-a-kind.
Local Hem’s founder, Colleen King, noted that their online boutiques hope to add several additional designers to this category as the season progresses.
