TELL US WHO CALHOUN & CO IS. 

We grew up on a cul-de-sac in Trumbull, CT and spent more time bouncing back and forth between our homes than anywhere else. We both spent our careers working in design & fashion industry jobs. When we first came together to chat about a new venture, a home accessories brand just made sense to us. We love being cozy at home and spending time with our nearest and dearest in the places we call home.

HOW DID YOU DECIDE TO COLLABORATE?

We always talked about doing “something”. And then in early 2016 we sat down and were like, OK — let’s go. Let’s DO something. Pretty quickly we found our path in a home brand that was about positivity and humor. We’ve spent a lot of years laughing together, so why stop now? We’re two really positive & happy people — so we felt like there was no other way our brand should feel.

We design all of our products here in New York. I (Kerry) make some of the one off pieces, like the wall hangings and pillows with the left over fabric and stocked fabrics, but everything else is produced right here in the US— something that is super important to us. 

IS THERE A STORY BHIND THE “Good At Naps” THROW BLANKET? 

There are a lot of rumors flying around Calhoun Ave (which is by the way the street we grew up on!) about who exactly inspired the GOOD AT NAPS... truth is that we know a lot of really good nappers..
