Clean Line: Cursive décor for home
Thank Fairfield County commuters for bringing Cursive New York to our doorstep. Locals are loyal customers at the Grand Central location, so much so that opening up a suburban outpost here became an obvious choice for founders Doug Duncan and Michael Schultz. Sconset Square is now home to their most broad, yet still charmingly curated, selection of home décor, apothecary, art glass, fine paper and accessories. Pick up a Pacific Connections lacquer tray to gather odds and ends atop an ottoman, add luxe to the powder room with simple Liquid Marseille soap, and stock up on John Derian coasters to cradle cocktails.
