Cape Cod is synonymous with relaxation and sunshine. From the bridge in Sagamore to the very edge of the cape in Provincetown, the cape is full of gorgeous seaside properties, beautiful walking, and biking trails, and plenty of places to enjoy great food and drink. More and more families are choosing to move to the Cape year-round!
Stroll down the beautiful streets of Falmouth, and enjoy the scenic view of the ocean while you enjoy a latte. Or visit Hyannis for the best restaurants on the cape and a trip to the John F. Kennedy Museum. A quick trip to Mashpee leads to shopping galore.
Though Cape Cod is known for its beachy culture and decor, you may want your apartment to feel a bit more contemporary, especially when it comes to your living space. That is where our Boston Pop Up shop, located this winter in Mashpee, comes in!
Our Boston Pop Up shop features well-crafted, original Dutch designs that will make your apartment feel unique and timeless at the same time. Whether you live in Falmouth, Hyannis, or Mashpee, read on for inspiration from our Boston Pop Up shop for your Cape Cod apartment!
Housewares for your Cape Cod Apartment
Much like the rest of Massachusetts, Cape Codders are known for their understated, classic taste when it comes to housewares and decor. Begin your decorating with a pair of GIJS shelves in white or black, perfect for displaying photos of city monuments or for showcasing a printed map of your neighborhood in Falmouth.
Next, add in a few Urban Nature Culture Urban Vases in Matte White. These vases are the perfect subtle addition of style to any apartment and make showing off your fresh flowers from the Hyannis farmer's market a breeze.
Finally, an Onshus Multi Candlestick set will make a real statement on your dining room table. A candlelit dinner makes your time with friends and family over good food and wine feel that much more intimate and special.
Kitchen and Dining
On the Cape, having friends and family gather in your kitchen is one of the most popular ways to socialize. Our Boston Pop Up is fully stocked with everything you need to turn your kitchen into an ideal space, perfect for low-key breakfasts or large dinner parties. Adding in a few handcrafted Dutch pieces will turn your historic Mashpee kitchen into a much more contemporary dining space.
Urban Nature Culture's Urban Nomad bowl set will be the perfect addition to your dining collection. These ceramic bowls each feature slight imperfections and design differences, meaning each will have its own look and feel. Each a crisp white color and available in three different sizes, these bowls will serve multiple purposes in your kitchen.
Living on the Cape, it's inevitable that you will end up having friends over at least once to watch the Patriots play during football season. For game-day snacks, you can serve the charcuterie and cheese you picked up from the Falmouth cheese shop on one of Brood + Plank's Poijke cutting boards!
Though Massachusetts is famous for its rather strict liquor sale laws, enjoying beers and cocktails with friends is another staple social activity when living in the city! Puik's Radiant Drinking Glasses feature a unique diamond shape, with each mouth-blown crystal glass reflecting light in unique ways! After an afternoon of strolling along the shop-lined streets in Hyannis, kick back with a cocktail in these beautiful glasses to round out your perfect day on the Cape!
Contemporary Furniture for Your Cape Cod Apartment
You've filled your kitchen and living areas with understated yet contemporary house and kitchen wares. Next, you'll want to find similarly contemporary furniture to complement the rest of the decor in your Cape Cod apartment.
The difference between contemporary and modern furniture is subtle but essential to keep in mind when designing your perfect living space. Both modern and contemporary pieces have minimalist designs, allowing pieces from each category to be mixed seamlessly together. However, the contemporary design reflects the standard of the present, while modern design refers to a certain period, such as the 1970s.
Whether you have a one-bedroom apartment in Mashpee or a multi-level home in Falmouth, our furniture recommendations will provide your space with a truly contemporary feel. A set of Piuk Dost chairs will give your living room a cozy feeling, inviting your friends and family to relax while catching the last of the Red Sox game. Puik's Shunan table combines simplicity and contemporary style. It's a place where you can rest your glass or your book while you enjoy the last of the daylight.
Accessorize Your Space
During the spring, summer, and fall, Cape Cod is alive with activity. Cape Codders can be found running along the beach in Falmouth, strolling the shops in Hyannis, and visiting the Mashpee Commons for coffee and more shopping. But once the winter months roll around, Cape Codders love to hibernate with good food, good drinks, and good friends.
What better way to spend the cold winter months than wrapped up in a warm, classically stylish throw blanket? Our Boston Pop Up features several throws to choose from. Our favorite is the Kaat Ascot Woven Throw. With a rustic look, this throw will complement your contemporary decor perfectly, and keep you warm as the snow falls outside!
Uniek Living and the Concept of Gezellig
Filling your Cape Cod apartment with beautifully handcrafted Dutch designs brings a contemporary style to your space and gets you closer to the Dutch concept of gezellig. Though it does not have a direct translation in English, gezellig is described in several ways. To some, it signifies "cozy" or "comfortable," while to others, it represents the Dutch tradition of friendliness, sociability, and belonging. No matter how you slice it, filling your space with contemporary designs from Uniek Living will elevate your space to a place of gezellig in no time.
Whether your home is in Falmouth, Mashpee, Hyannis, or another tightly-knit neighborhood in the city of Boston, you'll find unique housewares, decor, and furniture to create truly contemporary spaces at Uniek Living. Check out the next Boston Pop Up, located at the Mashpee Commons, to see some of your favorite pieces in person!
