New home decor line inspired by Vermont museum collection

SHELBURNE, Vt. (WCAX) – A New England eco-friendly clothing, bedding and home decor company launched a new line Thursday that’s inspired by a Vermont museum’s collection.

Garnet Hill and the Shelburne Museum partnered on the new collection.

The Shelburne Museum has one of the largest textile collections in the country and it was a key collection for the museum’s founder.

Both Garnet Hill’s designer and the Shelburne Museum’s assistant curator told us recreating historical collections was a fun experience.

“Shelburne’s got such a vast archive that it was like being a kid in a candy store trying to pick just one of them, so it felt like a very natural fit,” Garnet Hill Designer Vanessa Romeo said.
