Window Displays

These are some window displays over the past three years. We have a lot of fun doing them and try to change them out every couple of weeks in the store. The first two pictures were the window displays when we opened in October of 2006. This one featured the "Jacqui" console table from Bungalow 5, which continues to be a best seller for us. The lacquered boxes and linen lattice print pillows from Ferran are still staples as well.







And we loved that vintage settee that we recovered in a blue pinstripe! The Jack Russell painting from Heather LaHaise made for a perfect starting point for that window. We loved his little face!

New John Robshaw Bedding


New John Robshaw bedding has arrived! The Spring and Summer collection features beautiful fern prints in yellows and greens. Very fresh and crisp! As always, all the pieces have his signature whip-stitch detailing, which we love. We mixed it with some Matouk euro shams and an amazing organic cotton blanket by Marcel Miller. Under the bed is a Madeline Weinrib cotton rug. The bohemian chic prints from Madeline Weinrib always mix well with John Robshaw's textiles.





The blue and white block print collection are classics. The linen pillows are perfect for the bedroom, living room or sun porch. These do especially well here in Savannah because they have a coastal feel to them.






The new coral collection is a lot of fun! We've been mixing it with khaki, sky blue, and ink blue. This is a new designer favorite. Our friend who has great style, designer Lynn Morgan, loved the coral mixed with a deep ink blue and crisp white. Again we have a "Brooke" rug by Madeline Weinrib hanging over the back of the bed there. A perfect summer look!

Bee Line Home at Number Four Eleven


Number Four Eleven is proud to announce the arrival of Bunny William's new furniture line "Bee Line Home."
The nail head sofa was the first to arrive and we are thrilled to be able to showcase such a beautiful design in our shop.
Please stop by to view the catalogue of items available as well as the new sofa.

The Artful Table








For the past three years Number Four Eleven has participated in the Telfair Art Museum's "Artful Table." Each year we have created a themed table that goes on display to the public during the month of March.

The first year we built a massive cabana adorned with all the finishings. It was lined with curtains and even had a chandelier. It was a major pain to put together but in the end it turned out beautifully.

The second year, the event was hosted by famed interior designer Bunny Williams. (We also carry her new furniture line, Bee Line Home, at Number Four Eleven) This time, we created a table not as conventional as the last. With a lot of help from friends we were able to build a table with an enormous bird cage on top (thanks Scot Hinson!). Surrounding the table, our good friend and food stylist extraordinaire, Libbie Summers, made delectable cupcakes and arrangements made of bird seeds and succulents. Really spectacular.

This past year, our tables were meant to resemble paintings we chose by Dutch Artists. We chose an artist by the name of Sir. Anthony James. Our table paid homage to the painting's subtle colors and dune like appearance. We designed some amazing monograms with coral on them to match the seaweed prints. We monogrammed the table linens and floor pillows. It turned out to be a huge success.

Pictures of the Past




Fortunately enough, we were able to purchase the building that houses Number Four Eleven. We tried to salvage as much as we could of the historic building. The entire process took three months total to complete. As you can see, we repainted the exterior, replaced all the large glass windows and reinstalled the original 9 foot tall double doors. Inside was a total gut job. We exposed old wood floor boards, cleaned up all the original floor to ceiling bead board, tore out office space, and refinished a dingy basement that now has wall to wall sea grass carpet.
