Kitchen Confidential

Everyone’s favorite room in the house can also be the most challenging to design. That’s where Chuck Wheelock and Mark Maidique of wheelock maidique come in. These seasoned architects have focused their expertise on kitchens and recently opened a showroom in Old Greenwich. “It’s almost subconscious when you go into a kitchen that’s well designed. You know it’s really nice but you don’t know why,” says Mark Maidique, AIA. “We come at a project from a space-planning perspective. We look at what the best layout could be and fill in with custom cabinetry.” The pair handles projects of all sizes, from something as simple as refacing cabinets to planning a new kitchen from the ground up, creating a layout and coordinating the plumbing, tiles, fixtures, flooring and more. In the showroom, potential clients can ogle the latest upgrades, from glass cabinet doors that slide open to a sexy Porsche-Broan range hood. The pair can even work with clients to help to resolve a husband and wife’s different preferences. Says Maidique, “We take away the headache of putting a kitchen together.” 232 Sound Beach Avenue, Old Greenwich, 203-527-0020

Out of the Woods

If you’re looking to invest in the kind of solid wood furniture that’s sturdy enough to pass down to the next generation and timeless enough that they’ll actually want it, check out the classically stylish pieces from thos. moser. The Maine-based furniture company just joined the ranks of home retailers on East Putnam Avenue, opening in the corner showroom that once housed Cashmere Inc. Thos Moser has long enjoyed customers in Fairfield County and chose this location for its visibility and easy parking (there’s a lot in back). When you walk into the store, the visual appeal of the clean-lined furniture is as notable as the soothing scent of cherry wood; most of the line is also available in walnut. Each piece is handmade in Maine, signed by the craftsperson and guaranteed for life. Among the most popular pieces: the contemporary Vita platform bed; Dr. White’s Chest, a wardrobe named after the customer who first commissioned it; and the Lolling Chair, a curved seat with leather cushion and ottoman that’s as comfortable as a recliner but with a more sophisticated shape. 55 East Putnam Avenue, 203-661-7278; thosmoser.com

Hair Haven

There’s at least one salon for every block on Greenwich Avenue, so what sets christopher noland apart from the beauty pack? This full-service salon tucked above Stuart Weitzman is a soothing space where there’s a high level of customer service without the lofty prices. “Our passion is to make every person who walks out of here look beautiful,” says John Castagnetti, who co-owns the salon with its namesake stylist, Chris, who left Partners two years ago to open his own place. “People tend to put their phones away and relax here,” he says. Some regular clients visit two or three times a week and often have their hair and nails done at the same time. The cappuccino is flowing and the staff is happy to run down and feed quarters into your meter (there’s also a parking lot behind the salon). Though the menu of services includes massages, facials, waxing, manicures, pedicures, and lash extensions, the focus is on hair, with five stylists on staff in addition to Chris. Best blowout deal around: Ask for the VIP package and get three hair stylings for $100. 124 Greenwich Avenue, 203-622-4247; christophernoland.com

Ticket to Ride

Need to get your kids outfitted for riding lessons or camp? little saddler, an online equestrian supply and tack store, has just set up shop in Greenwich. Housed within Pet Pantry, Little Saddler will be open the third weekend of every month selling top-of-the-line brands of boots, helmets, breeches, blankets and saddles as well as some gently used riding gear. Exclusive to Little Saddler’s online shop is the adorable Claudia Anderson line of horse-themed kids’ clothing. These sweet frocks trimmed with embroidered and appliqued patterns are available as onesies for babies and outfits for girls of all ages.
