On The Cover: Emerson and Ryan Fry at Home


I was standing in the check-out line at Whole Foods, and saw this!!!

Emerson and Ryan Fry of EmersonMade are on the cover of Boston Home!  The article written by Brigid Sweeney, with photography by Jörg Meyer, is titled, “American Neo-Gothic,” and gives us a peek into their New Hampshire life (work) and home in a 19th-century farmhouse on 100 acres just outside of Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

This 2-page spread (below) shows little details of the couples’ home and some of their collections. 

The photo top right (of right-hand page) is of Emerson in her home office with huge design boards of her clothing sketches up on the walls behind her.

I checked out the Boston Magazine website and couldn’t find a direct link to the article (for those of you international readers who might not be able to get a copy of the issue – it’s the Spring 2011 issue), but I’ll add it to this post at a later date if I can locate it.  In the article, Brigid describes EmersonMade, the Fry’s company which started out selling Emerson’s distinctive flower pins, as “a clothing and housewares line that aesthetically marries J.Crew, L.L. Bean and the British retailer Boden.”  I like the reference to the 3 brands, but disagree with the analogy.  While EmersonMade IS comprised of classic pieces, I think the line has a bit of a unique, retro feel that puts them just a step above J.Crew. 

…and 3 follow-up posts:

I am a fan of the EmersonMade line, as I previously posted my favorite Spring 2011 top here.  Their blog is one of my favorites, as the photography is beautiful and whimsical.  You can see more of the photos of the interiors of their farmhouse at Design*Sponge where Amy A. gives you a “Sneak Peek,” and at Elements of Style, where Erin adds images from their lifestyle photo shoots featuring their product line (both posts from March 2010).

Addition (3/3/2011):  Great interview with Emerson and Ryan from December 2010 over on beachbungalow8!  Thanks Megan!
