Four friends, one dream.
Cape House was founded by Fernandina Beach locals, Tiffany and Wes Hinton and Lance and Lauren Jones.
Tiffany, interior designer and founder of Lola Interiors, had long dreamed of owning a retail location to bring the style and selections her clients love to the Amelia Island market. The Jones, who returned to the Amelia Island area in 2011, also believed they’d be the owners of a store one day, with a focus instead on hospitality. As they became closer as friends, they realized they shared this retail vision – and began the work to make it a reality together.
In March 2016, the Hintons and the Jones embarked on an anniversary trip to Cape Town, South Africa. Upon arrival, they immediately fell in love with everything about the town – the scenery, the architecture, the color schemes, and the crisp, coastal-chic style around every corner! Blown away by its beauty, they felt completely at ease – able to disconnect from their everyday, embrace rest, and focus on the future, namely, a retail concept.
It was here, during conversations over glasses of Pinotage, that the four defined the motivation behind opening a home and hospitality store – a passion for meaningful and spiritual relationships and where they begin: in the home. By combining Lance’s love for the gourmet and Tiffany’s love for interiors, their dream took shape!
Opening Summer 2017 on Amelia Island’s south end, Cape House will feature furniture, housewares, serve ware, and more – all the items that make a house a home.
