The Wilton Historical Society is debuting a new, two-day home furnishings show, “Objects of Desire: Style for the Garden and Home,” bringing a carefully edited, eclectic mix of outstanding pieces for the garden and home to Wilton. Mid-century, antique, contemporary, one-of-a-kind garden accents, fine furniture, found objects, art and accessories will be beautifully presented by 25+ top dealers on the grounds of the Historical Society, with proceeds benefitting the Society.

The show will be open Saturday, June 2 and Sunday, June 3, and show hours on both days are 10 a.m.-5 p.m..

Planning is underway for a festive Preview Party on Friday, June 1, from 6-8 p.m.. Catered by Barcelona and featuring a sangria bar, the event will also be an opportunity for early buying.
