Connecting the experience of small-scale living on Fogo Island to the modern urban experience.

What is a “premises”?

“Premises” describes a fishing premises – a collection of outbuildings located along the shore, such as sheds, fishing stages, wharfs, and flakes. A premises was a place where fishers and sometimes merchants would operate their business or process their catch.

In outport Newfoundland, it was not uncommon for larger families to live in tight quarters, with multiple generations sometimes living in a single-family saltbox or biscuit box home. Smaller in scale and quieter in aesthetics than our Fogo Island Inn at Home Collection, this new line of furniture emphasizes the dematerialization of objects to minimize resource consumption, while prioritizing longevity.

Modern quilt designs reference heritage patterns and continue the tradition of giving old fabrics new life. These designs tell a contemporary story with a soft and cohesive palette that brings life and tranquility into the home.
