A spectacular new summer home accessories show is set to debut at the Wilton Historical Society.  Objects of Desire: Style for the Garden and Home brings a carefully edited, eclectic mix of outstanding pieces for the garden and home to a two-day show. With offerings ranging from antique to mid-century to contemporary, Objects of Desire features a treasure trove of one-of-a-kind garden accents, fine furniture, accessories, found objects and art, beautifully presented on the verdant grounds of the Wilton Historical Society by 25-plus top dealers.

From armillaries to urns, sconces to sculpture and everything in between, the selection will be quite extraordinary. Organizers characterize it as a show to find that, “single piece [that] can change the conversation and ambiance of your room.” Some of the participating dealers include A Bird in Hand, Jeffrey Henkel, Leatherwood Antiques, Newsom and Berdan, Sandy Jacobs, Village Braider, and Warren Antiques.

Wilton Historical Society Officials have brought in Karen DiSaia, a well-known show manager who has produced the New York Botanical Garden’s Antique Furniture Fair and the Washington Winter Show, among many others. It’s an effort to bring an entirely new kind of show to Wilton, with a spotlight on amazing objects and one-of-a-kind pieces that can transform the garden and home, giving distinct style and visual pop.

“When something has been around for 50 or 70 or 100 years or more it has a different energy about it,” says DiSaia. “It’s a much more interesting approach to design.”

New York interior designer Phillip Thomas/Phillip Thomas, Inc. is design chair. Committee members are Wilton interior designers Angela Lowy/Grace Homestyle Design, Jane Schapiro/Jane Schapiro Interiors and Barbara Schmidt/Tile and Texture, plus landscape designer Susan DiLoreto/SMSD Landscape Design.
