You Can Now Shop Maragold Designs In Person at Simply Placed in Beverly, Massachusetts!
First, a little background.
Sydney, the owner and curator of Simply Placed, and I met and worked very closely together in our past marketing lives in Boston. In fact, when she relocated from our company’s San Diego office to Boston, a co-worker who knew both of us insisted that we meet.
It's funny how life works out sometimes.
At the time, and for obvious reasons, neither of us knew the other's real dream of starting a business - or of our shared appreciation for design with a focus on simplicity, textures galore, natural elements and soft, neutral palettes.
I remember sitting down with Sydney at a café in Boston in 2019, about a year after leaving my job (that one that we worked at together) to start Maragold. We were catching up on life and she shared with me that she was also going to leave the agency world and pursue her dream of opening a store.
Her would-be store already had a concept and name - Simply Placed.
I've watched Simply Placed evolve from its very beginnings, when it was a conversation between two friends at a café two years before it would open, and have been in consistent awe of Sydney's ability to bring her ideas flawlessly to life. She's created a haven of beautiful everyday home pieces and beyond in Beverly, MA.
Consider it your one-stop shop for shopping small this holiday, with something for everyone on your list. The neutral aesthetic makes for a versatile, timeless collection – and in her own words:
“It's a place of community, relaxation, happiness, and tranquility. The pieces we offer are perfectly curated with you in mind to make your house feel like a home. We promise you'll find something for yourself, a perfect gift for someone special, and everything in between.”
And now this is where Maragold comes in!
Given the above, it feels surreal to share that the Simply Placed collection is HERE! It fills me with joy to know that Maragold has a special home in my home state of Massachusetts while I'm living in London now, and that you can shop my pieces in person!
Like actually pick things up, run your hand across the wool, smell the leather (seriously, it's the good stuff) and see everything next to each other, playing around with different mixing and matching ideas.
The collection features a gorgeous palette of timeless-yet-modern neutrals for endless versatility and textural goodness. I handcrafted each and every piece - leather card holders, key fobs, tassel keychains and wool zip pouches - in my London home studio.
I'm so honored for my work to be showcased Simply Placed. Maragold is back where it all began and in a beautifully curated shop that a coworker from my past marketing life, turned friend, poured her heart into and opened just this year.
This is one of those full circle moments.
I hope you have fun with these pieces and love the collection as much as I did designing and creating it. The pieces are perfect for a little treat yourself moment or for mixing and matching to gift a loved one this holiday.
