If you instantly get the urge to throw a dinner party upon walking into Hudson Grace, we wouldn’t be surprised.
And neither would the owners. The new home store is the design brainchild of two of the city’s top creatives, Monelle Totah and Gary McNatton, who know how to make entertaining visually stunning. Totah is the former VP of design for Williams-Sonoma, and McNatton has created product packaging for Restoration Hardware and Smith & Hawken, among others. The two met while working together on the Banana Republic Home brand, and their shared passion for clean, disciplined design inspired their collaboration for the store.
Inside the small, bright shop on Sacramento Street, you’ll find an impeccably edited collection of both modern and vintage-style home goods: Totah and McNatton’s classic white dinnerware ($12 per plate), hand-dipped cathedral candles ($3), a rainbow of linen napkins ($18 each) and oversize serving pieces (starting at $32).
Mixed in are the types of eclectic items that make a living space feel special: framed sentimental quotes, regal Cire Trudon candles, gorgeous coffee table books and precious found objects Totah and McNatton have collected on their European travels. One of the standouts for us were the foraged, petrified antlers (starting at $95) McNatton collects from an undisclosed source.
We’d like to tour their homes, that’s for sure.
