Savannah is home to not only a beautiful historic district, but also some great and varied shopping. There are traditional antique stores tucked everywhere and you can get your chic French wares at the Paris Market on Broughton, more design on Whitaker St at One Fish Two Fish, and then find modern furniture at a placed 24e Design Co.!
I will post more shopping photos another day. But the point is Savannah is a city of contrasts and diversity whether its shopping, culture, food or lodging! You can stay at a large and/or traditional bed and breakfast or experience something a bit more unique!
Welcome to 24e Cottage!
Savannah’s modern furniture store 24e a teamed up with a group of craftsmen and designers and transformed this tiny space on Jones St. You can read more about the project here. It is known as the 24e cottage!
The hubs and I stayed in the cottage while in Savannah and enjoyed the modern interpretation of a very old cottage! The two fireplaces in the living room hint to the very different past of this cottage.
Notice the fireplaces in the photo below, this structure has obviously served many living arrangements over the years. A cab driver told us he heard they were railroad worker cottages, I am not certain but I amazed and so pleased that even humble little houses like this have been preserved in Savannah!
24e has the perfect sofa to fit that space…great fit!
The main bedroom has a little office room attached, I love how they did this space. The other bedroom has twin beds.
With two bedrooms this cottage would be great for a girls weekend.. It is located on historic Jones St and just blocks from a yummy breakfast at Clary’s and then just a bit more of a walk to One Fish Two Fish and other design shopping and galleries including Number Four Eleven. The décor is really quirky and fun as you can see.
I pulled most of these photos from the rental site and the source diagram pics from 24e’s website! I like how they show and name the things they used in the space. You can visit their full page on the project here.
The cottage is not big and the bathroom is not fancy, though the kitchen does have an amazing light. If you are expecting fancy and perfect this is not the place for you but if you want to stay in a truly historic cottage with a funky twist…this is the place!
Front guest room again with some sourcing.
Love the faux bois wall in this room! so clever and this room has industrial barn sliding doors!
The backyard is ready for fun with a hammock and chairs and lights! Perfect for a cookout or relaxing with wine after a long day shopping and walking Savannah’s squares!
It has a seating area, raised bed of veggies, hammock and of course party lights! Wonderful for a girls weekend! This image below (fuzzy phone pic taken in the rain) gives a good look at the size of the cottage..can you believe they did so much with such a small space..I love the lights! And I love that 24e and everyone that partnered with them on this project were not afraid to infuse life and style into a tiny and very old space!
So bravo 24e, this is a great project! And fyi, 24e has its own line of local-made products..amazing tables and these swing beds!
They have regular furniture lines, sofas and other upholstery in addition to their custom items so they are a full service furniture store but with a twist. The highlight a lot of Southern craftsmen and create their own objects and lighting out of found pieces like below! It is truly a unique store..the bldg. and the merchandise. I visited with the owner and he was so nice and excited about design!
Visit Lucky Savannah to book 24e Cottage or another cool property..there are so many places to stay in Savannah! And be sure and check out 24E Design Co. on Broughton St….the bldg itself is really cool!
God bless you Savannah and all the great people there working to make your city unique!
