A shop favorite, Massimo was founded in Copenhagen in 2001 by Mads Frandsen. Each rug is unique and entirely handmade based on centuries-old tradition and technique, seeking to create a dialogue between the established and the experimental, the past and the present. Massimo uses the finest natural yarns, creating rugs that are precious, unique and having a long lasting value.
Suitable for residential and commercial use in areas with moderate traffic. Custom sizes available.
Our best selling floor mat is a blend of style and durability.
Constructed with a thick rubber backing to prevent slipping, this mat was specifically created to handle heavy foot traffic. It's no secret we've been big Heymat fans for years as we love a brand with a good back story- Heymat is actually a spin-off from an industrial cleaning firm in Northern Norway. Their many years of experience from leasing mats to commercial and industrial enterprises throughout Northern Norway taught them how to keep dirt out of their customers’ premises.
These floor mats also get huge bonus points for being machine washable!
MIND, BODY & HOME
We also have new fragrances by Abel, new burners and oils and other treasures that we can't wait for you to enjoy. And to celebrate the senses, we're offering a Kerzon scent sachet with your $45 or more apothecary purchase (while supplies last).
Following a failed search for a natural perfume that was chic, modern and long lasting. Abel was founded in Amsterdam by New Zealander Frances Shoemack with a simple goal - to create the world’s best natural perfume.
Not only are the scents heavenly, but they're all natural ingredients evolve on your skin and work with your natural body chemistry to create a unique scent.
Nose-tingling Sichuan pepper and fresh basil open this traditional floral bouquet where its namesake iris shines among a showstopping lineup of rose, jasmine, and natural musk.
Top notes of Fleur l'orange, Bulgarian rose, lentisque. A soft, calming fragrance that reminds a mother to take care of herself while also taking care of her little one.
HOME & OFFICE
Oil Burners & Oils
We aspire to create those ordinary moments that can become those of ritual. Nothing seems to do that as quickly as a beautiful oil burner paired with essential oil.
New to the shop is the Vitruvi's Stone Diffuser. Its sleek design elevates any space, whether placed on a nightstand or living room shelf or in the office. And our clients are already raving about her beautiful subtle nighttime glow.
The Addition Studio Synergy Oil Diffuser is literally a one of a kind piece. The diffuser oil burner is carved from a solid piece of stone and as such, each piece is unique.
Our Nannie Inez essential oils are made with love in Austin and can be used on the skin or diffused.
BACK IN STOCK
Since it's arrival last summer, we've had a hard time keeping the Frama line on our shelves and for good reason. The hand lotion and hand soap emcompass a fresh, aromatic scent with notes of Sandalwood, Cedar Wood, and Ylang Ylang.
Made locally in Denmark, the collection is produced with 100% natural ingredients and in stunning Italian glass bottles that are perfect for display.
We're Also Loving....

PLANT CARE 101 WITH
NANNIE INEZ & FROND
What does overwatering look like? Signs of overwatering include yellowing leaves and black stems. To fix this, pluck yellow leaves and cut away any soft black spots. Make sure there isn’t damage to the roots by removing plant from its pot and shaking soil from roots. If there are any mushy roots, cut them away. Repot plant with fresh soil and reduce the amount or frequency of water from before.
What does under watering look like? If your plant isn’t getting enough water or humidity you will first see browning, crispy edges on the leaves of your plant. Also, many plants will droop when they’re thirsty. Water immediately. Closely observe the plant and increase the frequency of watering if needed.
How to know when your plant needs to be repotted? If your plant seems to be doing well but is growing slowly or not at all could be a sign that your plant needs to be repotted. Also, if the soil doesn't absorb water very well, it could need a soil-refresh. When repotting, we suggest increasing the pot size by no more than 2 inches.
Leaving the plant in nursery container vs. repotting? This is all about personal preference! If you have a planter with a drainage hole then repotting is great. Houseplants can cause some worry when it comes to interior surfaces and the dirt and water/moisture. For this reason we like the “double-potting” method. The decorative planter acts as a cachepot and the nursery container has sufficient drainage to keep the soil fresh.
Pot size vs. plant size? Industry-standard in nurseries is to sell plants that are at their max size per pot size. With that said, not all plants like to be immediately repotted when transferred to a new environment. Ask about your plant’s needs to determine if it would benefit from a repotting. Sometimes you can repot with fresh soil in the same size container and don’t necessarily have to go up a pot size.
Reading your plant leaves? Basic rules of a green thumb:
- —Yellow Leaves = Over-watering
- —Brown Leaves = Under-watering
- —Droopy Leaves = Under-watering
- —Dropping/Falling Leaves = Insufficient light or over-watering
- —Dark spots = Over-watering or fungus/pests
TOP 5 LOW MAINTENANCE PLANTS
- —Sansevieria “Snake” “Mother-in-laws’s-tongue”
- —Zamioculous Zamifolia “ZZ”
- —Philodendron Cordatum
- —Aralia ‘Fabian’
TOP 5 FUSSY PLANTS
(the idea here - plants that you might see often as trendy plants but are actually not so easy to care for)
- 1. Ficus Lyrata “Fiddle Leaf Fig”: These plants struggle to adjust to new environments which is why they’re on this list but when you overcome that, they’re actually pretty low maintenance.
- 2. Philodendron Xanandu: These plants are usually easy but insufficient light can lead to problems due to overwatering.
- 3. Ferns: Because if you’re a forgetful waterer like me, they go down quick without proper watering. If your fern looks dead just cut it back and keep watering. You’ll most likely see new growth in a few days.
- 4. Dracaena: These drought tolerant plants are low maintenance if they’re receiving bright-indirect light but because of the fast growth and tightly packed leaves, they can attract bugs. Check the plant frequently and treat immediately.
- 5. Cacti and Succulents: These plants really thrive best outside where they can get either direct sun or dappled light all day. If inside, make sure they have at least bright light all day. Let soil dry 100% before watering.
- 1. Ficus Audrey: So hard to find but truly a beauty with light green velvety leaves.
- 2. Maranta ‘Lemon Lime’ aka Prayer Plant: This particular plant is so striking with its lime green and dark green stripes.
- 3. Monstera Deliciosa: This will always be a trending plant as far as we’re concerned. I call this my old-faithful. Each new leaf is a surprise and the care is surprisingly easy!
- 4. Basically any hanging plant: When you’re a crazy plant lady and run out of floor space...wait! There’s the ceiling!

Linge Particulier & Tea Tasting
We’re just going to say it: Linge Particulier’s French linen paired with Mariage Frères cold brew tea may be our favorite French summer duo yet. We’re sharing a few of our classic but best-selling summer pleasures from two of our most esteemed French brands: Linge Particulier and Mariage Frères.
The demand for the Linge Particulier line has been overwhelming and for good reason, these luxurious textiles are light and airy yet perform their task with effortless style. And we have good news that we are fully restocked and with new color palettes!
If you haven’t experienced Mariage Frères iced teas, now’s your chance to join us in the shop on 7/27 for a tasting or take advantage of our tea sale happening until 8/4.
SHOP FRENCH LINEN & TEA
Linen tea towels from Linge Particulier are offered in a perfectly subdued color palette and they are super absorbent too. But what really makes them special and probably the reason they were recently featured in Remodelista is because they double as an apron! I mean, how Frenchy cute is that?

What We're Loving This Summer
We aim to offer goods that can be used year round but come spring/summer, we can't help but be drawn to a lighter cooler palette and a more playful vibe with our accessories. Here's a round up a few items in particular that we are loving this season.
|SHOP THE FAVORITES|
Notos Print & Cyclades Vase
Notos, a limited edition print from RF. Alvarez is the perfect art piece to help usher in summer. Notos, the god of the south wind, brings warm and heavy weather, fills sailors sails on their journey home, and represents that languorous summertime where time slows down and days grow long.
Shout out to MENU Cyclades Vase for being the perfect minimalist vessel for showing off the season's best peonies.
In the shape of some of the most marvelous wonders and creatures of the sea, the Shell Tufted Rug from Ferm Living can either be hung on a wall or placed on the floor. Whichever way you use them, they will leave their nautical mark on the room. Tufted by hand, the varying pile height creates a dynamic expression in the thick and cute rug.
RF Alvarez's work is certainly getting a lot of attention these days.
In his latest collection, DESEO, antiquity, Ancient Mesoamerican civilizations and Renaissance references intermix to carve out a visual language that blends these heritages and imbues them with an iconographic modernity. We have a few pieces from the collection available and let us tell you, they are even better in person.
The DESEO collection is only available at Nannie Inez.
This babe is so photogenic! The Shell Pot is our favorite accessory because it literally looks good anywhere you put it. Filled with your favorite plant (big fluffy fern) or all on its own, the pot shaped like a nautilus shell from Ferm Living mergers natural shapes and contemporary design. The matte finished exterior with glazed interior is a nice touch as well.
