Matt has an entire book devoted to the subject, Lifeguard on Duty, and the duo own the Mate Gallery store in Montecito curated with maritime accessories, book, objects, photography, and more.

There are so many wonderful stores in the Montecito Country Mart such Kendall Conrad, Merci to Go, and Hudson Grace, but I was most excited to finally see my friend Matt Albiani’s Mate Gallery.

Some are small and some are rather quite large, but they all look perfectly at home inside. Enjoy! Boat for sale at the Stamford Antique Center Vogue Living Unknown Phoebe Howard Phoebe […]
I guess it makes sense that since stores would be ordering for summer at the New York International Gift Fair there would be a lot of red, white and blue, and nautical items on full display. I was surprised though at all the Union Jacks we saw around the gift fair. Design Legacy, above, had […]
