Alps & Meters at Saybrook Home
January 27, 2021

BORN IN THE MOUNTAINS OF EUROPE. DESIGNED IN NEW ENGLAND, USA.

 

Alps & Meters began with the discovery of a vintage ski sweater on a snow-filled trip to the village of Åre, Sweden. Since its inception, it has been their mission to build a brand on a set of traditional values that reflect their deep appreciation for authentic alpine sport and to create timeless alpine apparel with uncompromising performance.

Alps & Meters products are designed by tradition. Combining natural materials, classic garment construction techniques, and contemporary technologies, Alps & Meters creates garments that are tailored, technical and timeless.

Alps & Meters is committed to the use of natural materials like wools and cottons. When harvested properly, these materials can be developed into garments that minimize the ecological impact.

When choosing their material partners they look for suppliers who can provide raw materials that are obtained according to their values and are capable of producing garments that are durable enough to be passed down through generations.

 

GOOSE DOWN  —  WOOL  —  WOOL, COTTON  —  CASHMERE  —  WAXED COTTON  —  LEATHER

Alps & Meters’ current manufacturing partners are located in Italy, Vietnam, and China and are experts in technical outerwear, knitwear, and sportswear. Alps & Meters’ garments are crafted using premium, sophisticated materials that require highly skilled handling and advanced technical and sewing capabilities. Their Forged Performance product attributes combine a complex combination of natural fabrics (waxed cottons, waterproof leathers, etc.) and contemporary technologies, often fusing knitting and cut-and-sew techniques.

These limited and unique manufacturing partners produce their technical alpine sport garments in a manner aligned with their complex Forged Performance product philosophy in a socially responsible way, with a commitment to supporting their principles and mission. Their team personally visits each and every factory they partner with in order to establish productive and virtuous working relationships for all according to their beliefs. In keeping with their desire for innovation and continuous improvement, Alps & Meters is constantly prospecting for new manufacturing relationships that meet our strict criteria for quality, fair labor practices, and socially conscious behavior.

We Ship Nationwide!
January 22, 2021

Just because we are located in Old Saybrook, CT, does not mean you need to be too! Throughout the years we have decorated and furnished homes from Maine to Puerto Rico to countless second homes in Florida.  We coordinate not just what fabrics go together, but the logistics of delivery to anywhere in the United States!

We at Saybrook Home offer white-glove furniture delivery to all corners of CT as well as some border towns in MA, NY, and RI. We have our fleet of trucks and staff to ensure you receive the same high-quality service from the beginning to the end of your experience.

However, if you do not live in our area or have a second home that you need help furnishing, we partner with a nationwide delivery company that services all of the continental United States!  Because of our great partnership, the delivery rates are very reasonable, and the service is top-notch.

 

 

We have even coordinated delivery to Rincon, Puerto Rico by sea freight, and flew down two of our designers to ensure everything was laid out exactly as it should be!

    Performance fabric qualities won’t wear or wash away because they are permanently bonded to every fiber

    for fabric that truly performs like magic.

     

     

     

    How to spot clean performance fabrics

    Most liquids simply roll off of performance fabrics, or they can be quickly blotted off the surface with a dry towel or sponge. The spot cleaning method of stain removal can be used for most light to medium stains, such as coffee, red wine, crayon, and ketchup. Be careful to brush lightly since fibers can be broken or matted during the cleaning process.

    • Before spot cleaning, blot up liquids on the surface with a clean, soft towel and brush off any loose dirt.
    • Prepare a cleaning solution of 1/4 tsp mild, dishwashing detergent, per 1 cup of lukewarm water.
    • Apply a cleaning solution using a misting spray bottle. Do NOT oversaturate when applying the cleaning solution.
    • Work the solution into the affected area by lightly scrubbing the area with a sponge or soft bristle brush. Make sure to work from the outside of the stain inward so as not to spread the stain and rinse your sponge or brush frequently.
    • Allow cleaning solution to soak into the fabric.
    • Rinse thoroughly to remove all soap residues, as residues will attract dirt. Blot excess moisture with a clean, soft towel or sponge.
    • Repeat steps 3-6 as needed.
    • Allow fabric to air dry.

     

     

    Don’t compromise a good look for durability – have the best of both worlds!

      New Year, New Style
      January 8, 2021

      With a new year comes new design styles, and we at Saybrook Home could not be more excited to introduce 2021’s most exciting home decor trends!

      When you shop at Saybrook Home, you’re shopping for the highest quality and best materials offered in the home furniture industry. Our manufacturers are committed to preserving the resources of our world for future generations. They strive to minimize their waste and conserve the energy they use to produce beautiful and lasting pieces while conserving the environment around them.

       

       

      COLOR

      At Saybrook Home, we are big fans of adding pops of color and statement pieces to your room. But in 2021, we’re going to see more color everywhere! Say goodbye to your all-white interiors, and start creating your rooms with a vibe. Statement fabrics and colors will be mix and matched to combine all your favorite textures and colors.

       

      MATCHING

      When it comes to decorating your bedroom, you no longer need to worry about purchasing the entire matching furniture set! The matching style of furniture pieces is becoming more and more dated by the year, and it’s time to add complementary and textured pieces instead to create your own set. Pair your antique mahogany dresser with a rattan end table and a floral upholstered end-of-bed bench. It’s time to display all your favorites instead of settling for just one look!

       

      GRANDMILLENIAL

      One of the newest and unique styles making its way into 2021 is the Grandmillenial design style. Grandmillenial is a tasteful mix of your grandmother’s antiques with new fresh takes on classic colors and patterns. Incorporating bold floral patterns with classic china is the epitome of the effortlessly put-together style. Chinoiserie vibes and childhood remembrances make this style so attractive in 2021.

       

      TEXTURE

      Earthly elegance made its way indoors in 2020, and now it’s time to enhance it! 2021 is all about feeling good, and plants, natural fibers, and nature vibes do exactly that. Wicker and rattan have already been creeping into your decor, and 2021 is the time to embrace the natural fiber looks! Accessorize your room with real or faux florals and greens, and elevate the look with natural fiber throw pillows and accents. Mix all of your natural textures for a truly comforting vibe!

       

       

      No matter what trends you want to keep from 2020 or try for 2021, we’re here to help. Saybrook Home carries pieces to fit ALL design styles, needs, and comfort levels. 2021 is all about YOU!
