Focus: Dillon & Company
At Dillon & Company fresh and fashionable meets old world style.
At Dillon & Company, you won’t find anything that owner Gill Dillon would not have in her own home. Sleek, clean lines rule the showroom—“nothing fussy,” laughs Dillon who opened the store with her husband, Dickie, after moving from England years ago. Dillon still travels home to England regularly to handpick pieces to bring back to her store in Plymouth where she is constantly rearranging the showroom to show off her new finds.
“I love to mix modern with antique,” says Dillon of her style. “I have a lot of transitional and contemporary furniture in the shop, but I always try to also have a sprinkling of fun antique pieces as well. I think it helps give people a sense of how to mix the old with the new, like pairing fresh, fashionable upholstery with a lovely painted French antique sideboard.”
The collection at Dillon & Company is constantly evolving to keep up with trends and with exciting new pieces that Dillon finds on her travels (if they don’t end up in her own home first). Clients can expect to find everything from custom upholstery to one-of-a-kind antiques, all of the highest quality and all carefully and lovingly chosen by Dillon herself. Dillon’s advice to her customers is to choose furniture that they love as well; and more importantly, to choose what they will still love five years from now. “When customers come back to us to say that what they purchased has become one of their favorite pieces or that someone asked them to include a piece in the sale of their home, that’s music to my ears,” she enthuses.
A trip to Dillon & Company will undoubtedly include sage wisdom and absolute passion for incredible pieces of furniture by Dillon, which means you are always bound to walk away with something spectacular.
