A Dream Come True
Whether you reach MAJiLLY on a ramble through Connecticut's
Quiet Corner or online, you'll know you've found an irresistible blending
of art and pottery. The Emilios longed to turn their dreams of living
in the country, raising a family and running a home-based business into
reality. Taking a decisive first step, the couple bought a dilapidated
19th-century farmhouse in Connecticut. Renovations commenced on the house
and barn in preparation for their home-based business. From the time they
were children, growing up with gardens and dogs and watching parents and
grandparents who were self-employed, each had the desire to work independently
and live with nature.
Then in 1996, the couple discovered their love of MAJiLLY - a unique handcrafted,
hand-painted ceramics business that was the perfect synthesis of the couple's
love of art and nature and their background in business. Tony and Martha
knew MAJiLLY was the perfect business they would be proud to continue
to develop and the MAJiLLY showroom was born in their artistically renovated
19th century barn.
Serendipitously, the same week they bought MAJiLLY, Tony and Martha were
called to China to meet Emily, the baby girl they had been seeking to
adopt. As a result, Emily, Martha, Tony and MAJiLLY all embarked on a
magical new adventure in their lives together!
Making Dining Pleasurable
Working from a hayloft and horse stalls which they have converted to office
and storage space, the couple now run MAJiLLY from their barn in Connecticut.
Tony and Martha bring their customers the finest handcrafted ceramics,
artfully recreated by Italian artisans in the world's finest potteries.
Dining should be a celebration of the little miracles all around us. MAJiLLY
is about enjoying life, having fun, and remembering to laugh and love.
By following their dream, Tony and Martha have turned MAJiLLY into a successful
home, garden and tableware ceramics business whose exclusive designs continue
to delight discriminating customers. Its playful renditions of nature
observed through a smiling eye make MAJiLLY the perfect complement to
a dinner with friends in the dining room, the garden or on the porch.
While visiting the MAJiLLY retail shop, stay in the Victorian Farmhouse
which hosts a Bed & Breakfast, featuring scrumptious full course breakfasts
served on magical MAJiLLY dinnerware. Affectionate Labrador Retrievers
can be found gracing the hill top property… either swimming in the
pond, romping through the meadows or quietly reposing in a favorite chair.
Come and celebrate life with MAJiLLY!
