At Home in Greenwich

    Paris-born Claire Maestroni has a knack for uncovering unique, high-end furnishings and accessories from around the world for her Greenwich, Connecticut store Mis en Scene, which in French means “setting the stage.” Opened last year, the expansive store offers a range of international, artistic furniture, lighting, rugs, hardware, accessories, and more. Beyond great design, Maestroni seeks out collections that have a story either through an age-old craftsmanship or original use of material or design concept. Most of the designs are exclusively sold in the U.S. through Mis en Scene including Zimmer and Rhode’s German-made furniture, Royal Botania’s high-end outdoor furniture, and Atelier Vierkant’s Belgian-made decorative urns, which are used by prestigious architects and designers such as Peter Marino, but up until now not available through retail.
