Labor Day has come and gone, which has always left us at Le Barn wondering how Summer came and went as if it were a single day. After the long and brutally cold winter of 2013, we were ecstatic to soak up some rays while reading a book, take a walk admiring the gardens and stunning flowers, and enjoy the smell of fresh cut grass, but it seems like we did not quite get our summertime fix, even as we roll into the month of September.

Le Barn was busy this summer with the addition of Katharine Sachs Lumby, Kathy’s daughter, joining the team. With a young creative eye and a deep appreciation for the stories that antiques hold (wonder where she got that from!), Katharine brings a fresh modern look to Le Barn, which one will quickly see with the website. We invite you to peruse the new site and learn more about the ideals and passion the company was founded on. Cruise through the new and easy to navigate ‘Shop Le Barn,’ which will have influx of new inventory this fall, and of course stay tuned with the new revamped blog, which will take on a creative lifestyle feel.

To start – Le Barn has decided we just aren’t quite ready to let go of summer, so stay tuned for some of our favorite summer getaways, recipes, and treasure finds that will help to extend your summer as well.

Happy Hunting,
