Organized on two floors, the mini-department store offers a treasure trove of unique and interesting pieces for the home as well as for everyone in the family, including clothing and accessories for both kids and adults. Some of Weiss’s favorites are: Goe body oil, a soothing body oil perfect after a day at the beach; Chan Luu wrap bracelets made by Weiss’s friend Chan Luu, which come in an array of hand-cut semiprecious stones, sterling silver, gold vermeil, and custom dyed leathers; and mango lime salsa. This culinary treat is always on the front counter for tasting and is great on grilled chicken, fish, or straight-up with a Margarita.

“The new location is organized in a different way, and it feels really fresh and new,” says Weiss. “Still, we made sure to keep the same feeling of home, body, and spirit throughout the store, so regardless of what floor you find yourself on, it all feels the same.”

Weiss explains that her inspiration comes from all things beautiful, and she works hard to find products that are not particularly common. “I am drawn to the unexpected, the surprising—for instance, pairing reclaimed wood with velvet or industrial metals,” Weiss notes. 

She keeps her eyes open when she travels, or when simply walking on the beach or in the woods. “I am just as inspired by a vintage textile from India as I am by a fish skeleton or a feather,” she notes. “One found piece can dictate the design of an entire room or even a house—and I always welcome the challenge!”

Weiss operates a full-service interior design studio as well. From carpets and bedding to fabrics and furnishings, Midnight Farm treasures can turn any ho-hum space into a cozy, welcoming oasis. Weiss often strives to bring the outside in and frequently uses the greens and blues of the ocean in her design work. Although difficult to truly pin down, she sums up her own distinctive design style as Boho Chic. Whether you are outfitting an entire house or just a summer porch, Weiss can offer her experienced design vision and the treasures from Midnight Farm deliver that perfect finishing touch.
