After purchasing a 1912 Foursquare in Montclair, New Jersey, Proprietor Debbie Masel began her quest to bring her family’s historic home back to its former glory. While searching for Arts and Crafts reproductions and Revival Era products, it became clear that there were not any shops that specialized in this important piece of history anywhere in the New York Tri-state Area.
Having grown up surrounded by antiques, Debbie developed a deep appreciation of period decor early on. Upon graduating from Parsons School of Design, she went on to a career in graphic design, ultimately as a magazine Art Director. Having left to raise her children, Debbie felt a drive to create a source that would help others rediscover the American Arts & Crafts Movement. And so, in 2004, Nest and Company was born.
For over ten years Nest & Company has celebrated the passion and idealism of the Arts & Crafts Movement, rediscovering this timeless era through today’s craftspeople. As a haven for those admirers of this important period (1890-1925) in American Craft, Nest & Company has established itself as a destination shop embracing quality materials, understated beauty and simplicity in interior design and home decor.
In 2015, Nest & Company has begun to evolve, as the Arts & Crafts Movement did, experiencing its own renaissance. Through the engagement of the finest artisans from across the United States, Nest & Company has developed an exquisitely curated collection of American-made handcraft that takes clients on a delightful journey through important periods in home decor and eclectic style: Victorian, Arts & Crafts, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Mid-Century & more.
