Richard and Suzanne at Privet House Richard, Suzanne and Privet House

A quiet Sunday afternoon in front of Privet House. And there they are. Side by side. In a white convertible. Eyes closed, faces tilted up to the sky. You ask what they’re doing. And find out they’re both imagining being in Capri.

In a way this is all you need to know about the partnership of Richard Lambertson and Suzanne Cassano – and Privet House. Because in that one incident (which is true, by the way) you know they’re imaginative, playful, stylish, and have an awful lot in common. Of course, you could’ve picked up that last point by the way they dress. There isn’t a time you see them that you don’t appreciate their unselfconscious sense of style. Different – but somehow right together.

They met as neighbors and soon found they had a lot in common. Richard, was co-founder of Lambertson Truex, a luxury handbags and accessories company and Suzanne had developed original concepts and products for companies such as Calvin Klein. So design was high on the list. Then too, both are marathon shoppers. So it seemed only natural that they create Privet House. Because of who they are, Privet House isn’t just an interesting shop. It’s a destination – with unexpected discoveries put together so beautifully, you just want to stay there. Heck, you want to live there.

On their first Privet House shopping trip, they were delighted to find that if they both ‘loved-it—couldn’t-live-without-it—want-it-for-myself!’ it would go into Privet House. No wonder the store practically glows with their energy.

Privet House is a beautifully curated adventure. And every time you leave, you’ll feel as though you’ve been away…compliments of Richard and Suzanne.
