Cargo and Company~ A Store To Adore

Have I got a post loaded with eye candy for you! I just adore this couch. The detailing in the carving is just amazing.

Indeed, all of the handpicked selections at Cargo and Company are just beautiful. It is casual French inspired elegance at its best. 

The showroom has combined a fantastic mix of lovely new pieces with amazing vintage and antique goods.

In addition to carrying such wonderful lines as Aidan Gray, Cisco Brothers, Visual Comfort Lighting, and Verrellen Home Collection, Cargo and Company has a private line of fantastic furniture.

The available color finishes for the furniture are so pretty. The soft green was my hands down favorite.

There were fun holiday touches placed throughout the store.

The soft goods, such as this pillow, were a delight to touch.  

I loved the juxtaposition of this vignette.

There is even a little something for the brightest of bling queens.

The attention to detail is exquisite.

I loved the wallpaper that was used in the jewel box of a powder room.

There is truly something for everyone.

Did you notice the gray and white awning with the words Bistro?

If you peer through the lovely linen curtains you will find the Cafe Contessa's quaint kitchen.

There is a brand new delicious menu for fall.

Wouldn't this be a fun location to meet a friend for lunch?

You will always receive a warm welcome by the Cargo and Company mascots. Pictured below is the handsome Mr. Dog. His wife, Cici the schnauzer, opted not to be photographed as she was to busy being charming.

It must be mentioned that Cargo and Company also offers delicious Matteo linens and is proud to carry several pieces of Metis Linens and French antiques.

Won't you stop in for a visit?

Awwww, love the pic of Mr. Dog! Of note, this was a few days before the Metis launch; the armoire is full of linens and I'll stop by for a updated armoire pic soon....

Gorgeous just doesn't do this shop justice~ Thank you for taking us on this beautiful fieldtrip! I see so many treasure that I would fill my car up with... and fill up my home.
I love the stained background of the hutch~ it makes it so rich! I am looking for one to refinish for my kitchen eating area.
As usual I am inspired!

If you keep taunting me with all these lovely shops and wonderful flea markets on the other side of the country, I will be forced to visit. Consider yourself warned. :)

Your Friend,

I throughly enjoyed your post. I'm crazy for that couch. I love black and white and I love stripes. I also am attracted to the unexpected and the melding of this fabric with that style sofa is so unorthodox that it has me grinning from ear to ear and rethinking my search for the perfect creme colored sofa. :)
Also loved the newspaper bust and the mannequin with the apron. Our group is getting ready for another sale and one of the women has done custom aprons. How fun to put them on a bittersweet embellished form.
Thanks for the morning highlight.

OMG! I was scrolling through these incredible images thinking, oh this store is probably somewhere in San Francisco, or even further away! Imagine my surprise and delight to discover it's about 5 minutes away from where I work---I can hardly wait for my lunch hour. I will be visiting them very, very soon. Thanks so much for introducing me to them.

Looks like a wonderful place to shop. Too bad we don't really have shops like that where I live or I'd go there all the time.

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

This is my kind of store! I don't see a thing I don't like and I would love to take the sofa home with me.

Privet and Holly said...

I certainly would,
if I could ~
Looks amazing!
And yes, it would
be a delightful
spot for lunch!
