Haute Home at Linen & Clove

By Shayna Mace | Photography by Shanna Wolf

When Dani Petta and Kim Schaaf met years ago when their kids attended elementary school together, they started chatting about opening a design studio and retail shop together. Fast-forward to October 2022, and the duo opened their home goods shop, Linen & Clove, in Verona. Although neither had retail experience (Petta was an HR executive and Schaaf was a technology and educational learning coach) they quickly figured out their aesthetic and favorite brands

A clean, minimalist palette of black, white and wood permeates the lofty space, which used to be a gym — and had quite a utilitarian look, says Schaaf. Now, shiplap-covered walls, sleek black sconces, white oak shelving and a faux fireplace give shoppers a homey vibe. Petta and Schaaf also have a design studio, offering everything from décor advice to renovation and new build design consultations.

This is a dream come true — I love helping people bring their ideas to life,” says Schaaf. “Home is so important and having one that you love makes a huge difference.”
