Located a bit off of Main Street in Lake Geneva, Summer Made has a collection of home design pieces curated by owner Angie Rinn, an entrepreneur with a passion for helping residents and out-of-towners find foundational pieces that refresh their homes.
Rinn started Summer Made at just 27 years old in 2019 and has grown the store into a beautiful community staple, with unique items like woven rope end tables, bamboo ladders and wood charcuterie boards.
“I’ve always been drawn to that light, bright aesthetic and incorporating a lot of natural materials — maybe even nautical-themed styles, which fits perfectly with being right by the water here in Lake Geneva,” says Rinn.
Rinn manages to find a mix of both unique vintage pieces and foundation- al basics for her customers, making sure there’s something for everyone, no matter their interior design style. She’s also excited to expand her offerings beyond just home goods by adding lifestyle products and accessories, such as clean, bright perfumes and Lake Geneva beach bags that match the overall Summer Made aesthetic.
“I focus on more natural, nontoxic body products like candles, diffusers and salt scrubs,” says Rinn.
Summer Made also has a blog page where Rinn updates readers on her travels to furniture markets and shares interior design inspiration.
“I try to be intentional about that,” she says. “No matter what season of life you’re in, if you’re shopping for your home or shopping for a birthday gift, I try to have a mix of something for everyone.”
