Founded in 1995, AMEICO distributes a highly curated and exciting collection from worldwide leading designers of the 20th and 21st Centuries who represent the best in creativity and craftsmanship. AMEICO’s products are innovative, classic, and sometimes surprising. The collection spans many decades and styles: from a surrealist chess set designed by Man Ray in 1920, a necklace made of industrial springs designed by Italian architect Tiziana Redavid, Izipizi reading glasses designed in Paris, to the exquisite Hibi incense matches from Japan.
AMEICO reanimates past designs and historical reproductions because they believe in reinvestment and resurrection of items that stand the test of time. In 2012, they purchased a historic building at 29 Church Street in New Milford, CT, a two-story brick and limestone structure built by Dowling & Bottomley, Co. in 1917 for the Southern New England Telephone Company. The historic building now houses their extensive design collection and is open to the public and to the trade.
