Welcoming George Home

The charming depot of Washington, CT may be tiny, but it just got a big shot of chic with the debut of George Home. As longtime local weekend residents, owners Wilson Henley and Bruce Glickman, decided to close their popular NYC design resource Duane and have consolidated their lives to Litchfield County.

You may remember seeing their 1930s Connecticut cottage last year in ELLE DECOR. It is precisely this easy-to-live-with stylish mix of their signature mid-century designs with antiques and expertly edited accessories that is the basis for George Home. And in case you’re wondering about the name, Washington, CT, founded in 1779, was one of the first towns to be named after George Washington, who serves as the store’s silhouetted logo.

  1. What a wide variety! Something for everybody. I would be in there all day. Probably more than once.

  2. What a fantastic shop. I think they have done an amazing job from the front door to the checkout. Dazzling goods without being too obvious. George will live very well in Litchfield I bet.
