Where did the Name Whim House Come From?

Original Whim House-Nantucket

Family and friends; good times with both.  This is how Whim House began. The Dodd summer home on Nantucket Island was purchased on a whim, and thus, appropriately named, "Whim House."  Inside the casual but timelessly appointed home, great memories have been made throughout the years.  All these times include great friends and family gathered around the table, or outings around and about the island.  It is the sensibilities of these experiences that have platformed our West Coast Whim House.  It is our goal to provide home decor, tableware and thoughtful gifts that help create lasting memories for you through the use of our carefully curated products.  

Whim House offers an extensive selection of categories including rugs, pillows, serving and barware, fine table and bath linens, paint, outdoor furniture, candles, and personal care items. Many of our curated items are hand crafted, artisanal, and fair trade. We feature select brands including Farrow & Ball paint and wallpaper, Wonki Ware dinner & servingware, Fermob outdoor furniture, fine linens from around the globe, and much more! A large selection of our brands are only available locally through our store and website. Shop with us online or in person and bring unique looks from our house to your home!
