The beginning of every season on Nantucket brings change - new restaurants, new shops, and new homes. This is why revisiting the places that are sentimental and nostalgic to us is so important. And there is no place more cherished to the Looms family than 40 Madequecham, otherwise known as “The Shack” - a former bathing house built in the late 1900's. For 30 years, “The Shack” belonged to Nantucket Looms founders Bill Euler and Andy Oates. With its breathtaking view of the South Shore and rooms filled with eclectic artwork, handmade textiles, and antiques, "The Shack” was the definition of Bill and Andy's simple, yet elegant style - a style that later became recognized as 'Nantucket Cottage Style'. It was the essence of ‘a life well lived' and became the foundation of Nantucket Looms design.
As times change, we strive to carry on Bill and Andy's legacy at Nantucket Looms. Their intention remains at the root of everything we do - in the placement of products in the shop to the weaving of a new throw, in the interior design of a client's home to the layout of our website. With such timeless and seemingly effortless beauty, it is no wonder “The Shack” style lives on.
