54 Gibbes Street – a perfect match with Maine Cottage

Built in 1910, this historic house is a beautiful example of the Arts and Crafts design movement of that era. Like Maine Cottage furniture, the clean lines, sturdy structure, natural materials, and lack of excess decoration of these homes are valued for craftsmanship and quality. They include locally handcrafted wood, glass and metal work that are simple and elegant. All proudly made in the USA.

Here are a few images of the current 54 Gibbes Street interior to give you a glimpse before it is transformed with our joyful Maine Cottage colors and styles:

Charleston Today

Charleston’s global appeal is the historic architecture of its downtown neighborhoods on the fabled peninsula. Today Charleston offers a wonderful lifestyle with waterfront promenades, picturesque pedestrian streetscapes, and an abundance of art galleries, fine restaurants and boutique shopping – all of which drew us here to open a Maine Cottage showroom in 2003.
