The company was started in 1996 by a pair of newlyweds, Ben and Gayle, as a natural evolution of what was then a pastime for Gayle. Today a coveted source for interior designers, Amity Home is known for its handmade quilting, charming flourishes, and emphasis on natural fabrics, uncomplicated care, and lasting quality.
