Funky and modern home accessories to update your pad. – The Scene
Good, a sleek home accessories shop, is updating the look of historic Beacon Hill with a streamlined selection of modern and minimalist design. You'll find an unexpected mix of ceramics, furniture, glassware, bags, art and apothecary. With an art gallery concept, the shop changes its look every season so that there is always something new to entice you.
The well-edited selection mixes one-of-a-kind vintage treasures with hip contemporary design. The emphasis is on tabletop accessories including Swedish crystal glasses from the 1950s, lean and glamorous Finnish crystal candleholders and Piet Stockman's square ceramic platters. For the mid-century design aficionado, there are lots of alluring options including Ericcson's groundbreaking one-piece phones introduced in 1956, and vintage and reproduction Eva Zeisal ceramics. In keeping with the gallery theme, new artists will be exhibited every few months. Owner Paul Niski knows that good design should be accessible to everyone and the prices accommodate a range of budgets, from a $6 Italian soap to $850 for a painting.
