It’s not long until the launch of Loveland (120 Commercial St., Provincetown, Mass.; 508–413-9500), Josh Patner’s new furniture, clothing, and home store. The fashion designer and writer will unveil his latest venture on July 27. Here’s a preview of its eclectic offerings: A wing chair upholstered in eighteenth-century style velvet tapestry sits alongside an avant-garde forties telephone Patner found at a house in New Bedford. The books and ornaments displayed on the leaf-green bookshelf were gleaned from estate sales and flea markets.

Loveland will showcase locally crafted items alongside antiques and repurposed furniture. Think Bellocq teas, Ghurka luggage, lamps, watches, and pipes—a world of curios. A Provincetown upholsterer transformed this handsome wing chair using a gray cotton duck cloth and a nineteenth-century American coverlet.

Patner commissioned local tattooist Joy Less Posh to channel the spirit of Provincetown artist Peter Hunt. These side chairs take Hunt’s folk-art aesthetic into slightly darker territory—what Patner, in a nod to Cape Cod, calls “Coloniana.”

“Loveland is a showcase for things that have resonance to me: old things, new things, and things made by hand,” says Patner, who is stocking work by local weavers, photographers, potters, collagers, knitters, and paper artists, among others. Here, a deer skull is given the psychedelic treatment by P-Town D.J. Matty B.

The windows flanking the front door are currently kitted out with a pair of nautical-themed installations. This one features an eighteenth-century French provincial mirror alongside a scallop lampshade made by Josiah Mayo, a local fisherman.

The other window installation boasts a model schooner and a Belle Epoque–style gilded chair. The floor is covered with chips of broken seashells. The building itself is storied, too, having once housed both a supermarket and a Portuguese social club.

Loveland will feature Patner’s new line of clothing. His simple designs are made from upholstery remnants and fabric culled from church and yard sales. Here’s the man himself with the pattern outline of a pillowcase dress in a floral fabric he found at a Methodist church fair.
