There are many reasons why we love this gorgeous little state and here's one more — the Rhode Island Collection from Studio Dunn, designed and manufactured locally from sustainable materials.Committed to supporting local business, the studio collaborates with designers, artisans and manufacturers from Rhode Island and nearby areas and sells their products — all named after RI towns — on their website, www.studiodunn.com
. Their pieces are made from metal, glass, and ceramic with a focus on wood from local sources that promote sustainable forestry. High on hometown pride, I'm already saving up for the Coventry Stool
, though the Barrington Chair
, named after the town where I grew up, comes in a very close second.
