Verellen comes to Eleish van Breems
Eleish van Breems Home wagmag.com/artful-living/in Westport has become the first free-standing retailer in Connecticut to carry Verellen, the Belgian-designed and American-conceived furniture line.
“Tom and Sabine Verellen’s special aesthetic and style instantly appealed to our Scandinavian design sensibilities,” EVB co-founder Edie van Breems said in a statement. “Verellen’s strict attention to detail and modern yet timeless designs have always spoken to us and exude a livable elegance that resonates with our mission at Eleish van Breems Studio.”
The new, 2,500-square-foot showroom, located in a historic building across from the Westport Metro-North station, contains more than 26 pieces of Verellen furniture, including sofas and chairs upholstered in beautiful Belgian linens, along with handcrafted walnut coffee and dining tables and chairs. The sleek, sustainable contemporary designs are balanced by the blend of lighting, rugs, Gustavian antiques and midcentury Scandinavian furniture that Eleish van Breems is known for.
“From floor models, stock items, made-to-order upholstery and case goods to custom projects, our confidence in their team is huge, and we look forward to walking hand in hand in the coming year,” Verellen said.

A vacuum for those on the go
In “Apollo 13,” Kathleen Quinlan’s Marilyn Lovell tells her astronaut-husband Jim (Tom Hanks) “When you were on the far side (of the moon) on (Apollo) 8, I didn’t sleep at all. I just vacuumed over and over again.” For many of us, vacuuming is a soothing experience.
Whether you find it comforting or not, though, it’s become an even more necessary task in the age of Covid-19. But sometimes, you need a more portable model – particularly for the office or the car.
Enter the new Raycop GO, a cordless portable vacuum using the same UVC technology that hospitals do to eradicate 99.99% of viruses, bacteria and dust mites from fabrics and floors. It collects and traps fine dust, keeping those allergens out of the air in everything from rooms to recreational vehicles. And its entire filtration system, including the HEPA filter, is washable
“Raycop GO is the perfect vacuum for those eager to sanitize everything, including cell phones, hotel beds, pet areas, cars, toys and shared workspaces,” says Michael Lee, M.D., founder of Raycop North America. “Raycop has been creating and marketing allergen vacuums since 2005, and all Raycop products incorporate our signature safe UVC sanitization feature. Now more than ever, it’s vital to keep our travel and livings spaces healthy and safe.”
The vacuum retails for $149. For more, visit raycop.com.
