Shopper’s Diary: The Shop at Bardessono

April 30, 2009

Hotel Bardessono in the Napa Valley opened its doors earlier this year with the aim of becoming America's greenest eco resort. Features include a geothermal heating and cooling system, rammed earth walls, steel panel siding, and design details such as San Francisco garden guru Flora Grubb's tilandsia vertical garden and designer Tamotsu Yagi's minimalist signage. Another draw: the Shop at Bardessono, curated by Matt Dick of Matocreative, who has sourced an array of items from artisans around the world. For the past ten years, Dick has traveled and worked in Japan, and his selection of wares reflects his appreciation for the Japanese aesthetic. Among the offerings: hand-poured Cire Trudon candles from Paris; Peruvian baby alpaca throws; weighty handblown glass vessels from Los Angeles glass artist Alison Berger; and Japanese bamboo fish baskets.
