A mainstay in the Chester, Connecticut downtown for 20 years, Dina Varano wanted to align her store interior with her brand and her simple, clean, and nature-inspired artisan jewelry. In a true collaboration, Dina and I spent over a year planning her new space to be perfectly balanced with the roots that inspired her when she first began her studio, and elements that illustrate her design progression, to serve as a backdrop for her handmade jewelry, and products from her curated vendors. The back storage room was redesigned for intentional organization in a very tight space that allows for displays visible from the sales floor.
