About Us

Rhonda Eleish and Edie van Breems are known for imparting their inviting aesthetic to homes ranging from rustic back country retreats to larger estate properties and city apartments.


Their company, Eleish van Breems, was started as a fine antiques gallery in Woodbury, CT in 1997. Set in a historic 1760 house and garden, the store was a compelling example of a Scandinavian lifestyle on display.

Rhonda and Edie's fresh take on Gustavian formal and country Swedish folk antiques mixed with the latest accessories from Scandinavia quickly became a go-to resource, with an international following.

Interior design and a line of historically based Swedish furniture soon followed for the two childhood friends.

Today, Rhonda and Edie have moved their storefront to Westport, CT where design work has taken center stage and their mission is to introduce a clean, elegant and fresh approach to interiors, all with a Scandinavian essence.

They are the authors of three bestselling Scandinavian interior design books including Reflections on Swedish Interiors.
