“stories behind the pieces”

-Amy Hockenbrock



The best part about decorating or gift-giving with and from Panache Home & Design is the Stories behind the pieces. Particular in a fabulous way about what’s brought-in, the designers at Panache come to know the previous lives their pieces have seen. As Hockenbrock explains: “it has a little bit of history, but still feels new when giving it.”

Here are my picks:



1. Timeless TraditionFiesta Ware. (Bonus – Ice Bucket shown beneath is vintage.)
