Best of Boston

2002 Best Bridal Registry

Bliss Home

New digs in the Back Bay have given this business a little room to spread out its wares. In addition to the tabletop necessities—magisterial Couzon flatware, Bernardaud china, classic modernist Scandinavian glass (both Kosta Boda and Iittala)—Bliss now has space for ultrachic Paola Lenti furniture. The bridal registry in the back leads couples through the selection thicket, and the Web site is cross-indexed every which way to help wedding guests who are shopping from afar. After the honeymoon, newlyweds can pick up their remaining needs at a 10 percent discount.
