We’re spoiled here in New England; in addition to a gorgeous landscape and world-famous autumnal color, we’re home to some of the most attractive architecture in the nation. Our region’s rich history and European influences have yielded a variety of identifiable architectural styles, including Georgian, Cape Cod and Colonial homes, all of which are still replicated or quoted in architectural designs today.
While some homeowners opt to decorate historic and colonial homes with period pieces, Gabby offers transitional accents that pay homage to historic design motifs that transition living spaces into the 21st century.
The following Gabby furnishings can pepper your Colonial or historic New England home with transitional style.
French kitchen island (Unique Finds Collection). At first glance, our French Kitchen Island, from our Unique Finds, could be a family heirloom or a piece specifically designed for the home’s original builders. Beautiful woodwork cornices, brass drawer handles and other trim details give a subtle nod to old-world craftsmanship. However, the natural wood finish and geometric accents make it relevant today.

Samantha Farmhouse Cabinet. Living spaces were viewed differently in an era when people were shorter, rooms were heated individually and construction was usually completed by the occupants or their relatives and friends. The Samantha Farmhouse Cabinet will look right at home in your smaller dining room or kitchen, while offering plenty of storage. The solid wood construction and ivory brown finish give it an antique look while the unique metal work on the glass panels lend a contemporary edge.
Benjamin Vintage Style Buffet. This vintage-style buffet was inspired by an era when rich wood finishes were en vogue. It’s beguiling feminine curves will look right at home in your formal dining room. Just as New England architecture boasts multi-paned windows, the Benjamin Vintage Style Buffet features uniquely latticed glass doors for additional visual interest.
Antique Secretary Desk ((Unique Finds Collection)). Wish your family had a handmade antique or two passed down the generational ranks? You can be the one to start the tradition with our bench-made Scandinavian replica Antique Secretary Desk. It’s perfect for bill paying, working on your laptop or as a homework zone for kids. The distressed finish adds a feeling of authenticity — it’s as useful as it is attractive.
Bench-made Drawer Table (Unique Finds Collection). Here’s another piece we’ve curated to replicate an English bench-made drawer table. It’s an incredibly versatile piece that can be used as a desk, an entryway table or the “tween” table between two comfortable reading chairs.
