At Calgo Gardens we believe that our homes and gardens should be populated by people and things that enhance our lives with beauty, harmony and peace, so it’s natural that the BARN—our naturally gifted shop—houses a thoughtfully chosen selection of whimsical, sophisticated, spiritual and functional art. (When we moved Calgo Gardens to Monmouth County in the spring of 2010, we left behind the actual post and beam barn that housed our store, but not its name or spirit.)
“Everywhere you look you smile!” The BARN is often called more of an experience than a shop. A sunny party of artfully presented creations crafted by our favorite artisans, it is an eclectic world of whimsical and functional art, created to enchant, dazzle and move us. Jewelry, furnishings, clocks, terrariums, birdhouses and more—made from the earthy elements of glass, wood, metal and stone.
Whether looking for an piece to enhance your interior or exterior design, a standout gift, or just something to brighten your day—The Barn at Calgo Gardens has a delightful range of inspired choices to adorn garden, home and you…it’s really a shop like no other.
