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!
