The Paris Market

36 W Broughton St, Savannah, GA 31401

theparismarket.com

There’s a dreamy, otherworldly quality to Paula and Taras Danyluk’s enchanting Savannah shop that makes every visit feel a bit like stumbling into Narnia or Wonderland. It’s easy to get lost here, bewitched by the Danyluks’ collection of interesting things. Housed inside a Victorian-era grocery store, the two-story space is inspired by French open-air markets and is bursting with an ever-changing collection of curiosities and treasures, many picked up on their international travels. Copper pots, oil paintings, contemporary cookbooks, 18th-century furniture, custom lighting, handcrafted jewelry, painted linens, terracotta planters, and French milled soaps are just the beginning. If browsing works up an appetite, duck into the on-site cafe for a macaron and an espresso. The marble bistro tables and velvet banquettes make it easy to see why Architectural Digest named this Georgia’s most beautiful coffee shop.

Cobblestone & Vine

Multiple locations; Bentonville and Little Rock, Arkansas

cobblestoneandvine.com

Founded over 30 years ago, Cobblestone & Vine is a landmark in Little Rock. Whether you’re renovating a home, redesigning an existing space, getting married, or having your first child, this is your one-stop destination for furniture and interior design. “We sell custom upholstery, case goods, lighting, rugs, bedding, and art—including original works by numerous regional artists,” says Kim Gillum, who owns the store with her husband, John. Shoppers will also find registry mainstays and an abundance of giftable pieces like pottery, dinnerware, and other accessories. Gillum’s current favorites include a colorful set of showstopping La DoubleJ dessert plates and botanical-inspired candlesticks in a glossy white finish from New Orleans artist Lisa Alpaugh. In 2021, Kim and John added a third Cobblestone & Vine location in Bentonville, their first outside Little Rock.

Syers Browning

949 National Ave Suite 175, Lexington, KY 40502

syersbrowning.com

Janice Leake and her daughter-in-law Anne Leake founded this charming Lexington boutique during the pandemic. That it has not only survived but flourished is due in no small part to Janice’s unflappable spirit, strong work ethic, and keen eye for pretty things that appeal to all budgets. “If something’s beautiful, it’s going to sell,” she says of their wide-ranging inventory, which checks the traditional bridal-registry boxes with fine china, crystal, and European linens but also includes items like cocktail napkins, coffee-table books, large case pieces, and fine art. The store’s heirloom baby gifts, such as hand-embroidered receiving blankets and pewter rattles, are meaningful purchases for friends and loved ones who have little ones on the way. Customer service at Syers Browning goes beyond nice gift wrap and friendly, knowledgeable employees. Janice wants to get to know you and show you exactly how to style that French wall basket you just got. And if she doesn’t have what you’re looking for, she’ll happily point you in the right direction.

Polished Coconut

3600 Grand Ave, Miami, FL 33133

shop.polishedcoconut.com

“Preservation is kind of the baseline of our business,” says designer Alicia Kossick, who opened this colorful Miami shop nearly 20 years ago. That mentality informs Polished Coconut’s collection of antique furniture, nostalgic home decor, vintage lighting, and other interesting objects picked up on her international travels. For Kossick’s array of signature artisan-made goods, the goal is supporting other cultures as opposed to historical preservation. One of the first products she commissioned for Polished Coconut was a line of Wayuu mochila cross-body bags. The colorful woven accessories are the creative legacy of the Wayuu, an indigenous community in her husband’s native Colombia. Today, she also sells blankets and hammocks that are handcrafted by Colombia’s Zenú people, as well as natural-fiber place mats and runners made by a group of Colombian basket weavers.

The Shade Shop

2415 Ivy Road, Suite 150 Charlottesville, VA 22903

theshadeshop.com

A riot of bold colors and textures, this spot is a sensory delight. It has a robust inventory of light fixtures and lamps, including designs by Paul Schneider, Penny Morrison, and Julian Chichester. As the name suggests, the Charlottesville boutique offers a diverse assortment of designer lampshades, including the country’s largest ready-to-ship collection of the acclaimed British brand Fermoie. “When I bought this place, white lampshades were the only options,” recalls owner Kara Williams. “Today, they come in a wide range of hues and high-end fabrics, so don’t be afraid of color.” If you don’t know where to start, just ask. The team can help you find the perfect one, whether you stop in or browse remotely.

Blue Print TX


Blue Print

Multiple locations; Austin and Dallas, Texas

Blue Print started with five Texas-based interior designers embarking on trips to Europe to hunt antique, vintage, and one-of-a-kind pieces for their own clients. Over time, it became a bright, cheerful, and clean-lined Dallas showroom—a brick-and-mortar repository for the group’s bonus finds. More than a dozen years after Blue Print first opened its sky-hued doors, the brand now includes the original Fairmont Street boutique as well as a gallery of contemporary works (featuring more than 60 international artists), a to-the-trade warehouse, an online store, and a new Austin shop. Blue Print also has its own furniture collection and in-house decorating experts. Today, the well-assembled reserve of upholstery, lighting, tableware, and antiques is a balanced mix of old and new, built on long-running relationships with artisans and decades of experience. With gorgeous vignettes everywhere you turn, inspiration is never far away.

Hunt

2903 N State St, Jackson, MS 39216

You’re not alone if you don’t know what to do with a custom sofa or fantastic piece of art that just doesn’t work in your house. That exact conundrum is one of the many reasons there’s so much waste in the design industry, but folks like Hunt owner David Carpenter are working to solve that problem. At this high-end consignment boutique, the stock includes both vintage and contemporary furniture, art, rugs, lighting, and other decorative objects. The Jackson shop is a win for the sellers as well as for the discerning buyers who are looking for pieces with personality, provenance, and patina. Items like Oly lounge chairs, a John Widdicomb dining table, and even a Steinway piano are all part of the dynamic mix. And because the store’s model is secondhand resale, there’s always something new to discover in the ever-changing inventory.

Biscuit Home

1614 Westheimer Rd, Houston, TX 77006

biscuit-home.com

Back when Bailey McCarthy launched Biscuit’s line of American-made heirlooms in 2012, the term “grandmillennial” hadn’t yet been coined, but her printed linens in traditional florals, old-school piqué, and embroidered dotted Swiss attracted a substantial following for putting a similar contemporary spin on classic elements. And because customers like to touch and feel these kinds of personal products, McCarthy opened a small storefront in Houston’s growing Montrose neighborhood. Both the brand and the boutique have since evolved; Biscuit moved a block over to its current space around seven years ago. The impressive bedding wall is the main attraction, but the shop also sells other goods and accessories for the bedroom, bath, and kitchen—in other words, anywhere you use linens.

Domain

710 Frederick Road Catonsville, MD 21228

domainbylaurahodgesstudio.com

Although designer Laura Hodges’ stylish retail space and her adjoining design studio are just 15 feet wide, the Catonsville storefront is impossible to miss with its black-and-white striped awning and large picture windows. Her selection of lifestyle products, tabletop items, ceramics, custom baskets, blankets, and other soft goods showcases her appreciation for clean lines and classic details. It’s a small but special assortment; each piece is chosen and displayed with care. She even has a dedicated collection inspired by our 2023 Idea House. Domain’s wares mirror Hodges’ commitment to doing things right. “[Our inventory] is all fair trade and sustainable,” she says. “We know where everything comes from and pay attention to who we’re supporting.” That means products from small businesses, Black-owned brands, female artisans, and the like are the rule rather than the exception here.

Union Camp Collective

115 Old Williamson Road Raleigh, North Carolina 27603

unioncampcollective.com

“My personal aesthetic is large and colorful,” says Charlotte Smith Jeffers, who founded Union Camp Collective in 2015 and used that philosophy to inform the feel of the shop. Her inventory is heavy on vintage furnishings but spans a broad range of styles, price points, and regions. “Everything I buy, I love,” she says. “The space is too small and too important to me for it to be anything less than that.” These pieces may include large-scale landscapes of coastal Maine by Gay Youse, a bleached-pine chest from Amsterdam, statement lamps, or antique pinwheel quilts. If you’re still figuring out your design taste, this Raleigh gem is a great place to start. You can purchase Smith Jeffers’ latest finds on Instagram (@unioncampcollective), or visit the store in person to let her help you curate a home that’s a true reflection of you.

SummerHouse

1109 Highland Colony Pkwy, Ridgeland, MS 39157

summerhousestyle.com

“The showroom is a kind of a storyboard for how we design,” says Lisa Palmer, the owner and principal designer of SummerHouse. This full-service firm has a 6,900-square-foot spot in Ridgeland as well as a satellite location on the Square in Oxford. In Ridgeland, the floor-to-ceiling glass storefront draws you into the stylish space, where vignettes lean toward sophisticated silhouettes and classic forms. The displays mix modern pieces from Lee Industries, Highland House, and Hickory Chair (among others) with antiques. Original art like Chelsea Fly’s monochromatic landscapes and a collection of bespoke pieces (including a line of iron beds Palmer and her team dreamed up and worked with local craftspeople to build) allow shoppers to add personality to their homes.

The Bower Decor Market


The Bower Decor Market

The Highlands, 355 Wharton Cir Suite 151, Triadelphia, WV 26059

thebowerdecormarket.com

Once you have a chance to browse the stunning dried and artificial florals at The Bower Décor Market, you’ll realize this genre gets a bad rap. “Plants bring so much life to a space,” says founder Alice Parsons. “But not everyone has a green thumb.” These “permanent botanicals,” as she calls them, fill the gap for her gardening-averse customers. The faux hydrangeas, tulips, lamb’s ears, eucalyptus, milkweed, thistles, rosemary, and other greenery that she carries come as individual stems or small bundles that can be easily manipulated to make custom arrangements. The market’s succulents, orchids, and houseplants create equally convincing illusions. Parsons’ obvious appreciation for the outdoors can also be seen in the organic lines and natural materials that she threads through her assortment of furniture, baskets, trays, vases, and throw pillows.

Elizabeth Stuart

215 Coleman Boulevard Mount Pleasant, SC 29464

elizabethstuart.com

Mid-century art, sterling silver picture frames, antiques, Italian mohair throw blankets, beautiful barware, fine linens, and chic straw hats—this place has it all. Decorator Elizabeth “Muffie” Stuart Faith’s layered aesthetic defines this elegant South Carolina store. Opened 28 years ago on King Street in downtown Charleston, the boutique still stocks a handful of longtime customer favorites, including gilded desktop paperweights by the Texas sculptor Barbara Biel, Murano glass vases, and chandeliers. In 2013, Elizabeth Stuart made the move to its current location on the edge of Mount Pleasant’s Old Village Historic District and eventually added a garden shop and conservatory in 2020. The tranquil outdoor space is bursting with handmade planters, sculptures, outdoor furniture, and plants that thrive in Charleston’s climate—such as boxwoods and olive and citrus trees. A stroll around the whimsical grounds is an absolute must.

Dixon Rye

1085 Howell Mill Rd NW, Atlanta, GA 30318

dixonrye.com

Although designer Bradley Odom grew up in a family of upholsterers, he spent two decades working on the corporate side of retail for J.Crew and West Elm before returning to his roots and pursuing a degree in interior design from Savannah College of Art and Design. In 2015, he opened Dixon Rye inside an 80-plus-year-old ironworks foundry. “We focus on not pigeonholing ourselves into being specifically modern, traditional, contemporary, or transitional,” Odom explains of the store’s unique style perspective. “For us, it’s about having a mix.” Heirloom-quality, American made upholstery forms the shop’s foundation, and he surrounds that base with a carefully selected inventory that includes exclusive goods created from partnerships with global artisans. The store’s custom neutral Tadelakt pottery collection from Morocco is an excellent example, as is the line of cast-bronze jewelry from Alistair McCowan Studio.

MoModerne


MoModerne

3730 Foundry Way Suite 188, St. Louis, MO 63110

momoderne.com

For MoModern owner Anna Weiss, business is deeply personal. Case in point: She regularly shuffles vintage and antique pieces between her own house and the MoModerne floor, where evidence of her expertise and passion is everywhere. “You can always find an Eames chair hanging around,” Weiss says of the St. Louis showroom’s impressive collection of 20th-century furniture, lighting, and art. “[Right now], I have a three-piece Eero Aarnio wicker set that I would take home if I could.” She helped put herself through college by selling her estate-sale treasures on eBay, and though she graduated with a degree in psychology, her thrifting eventually became a full-time career. “It’s endlessly interesting to me,” Weiss says of her deep dive into the 20th-century design world. “I love the evolution and innovation—from Art Deco to postmodernism.” Her shop reflects her genuine fascination with each era.

Reed Smythe & Company

73 White Bridge Rd # 106, Nashville, TN 37215

reedsmythe.com

You wouldn’t anticipate finding one of Nashville’s most beautiful boutiques in a nondescript strip mall between a tire shop and a taco restaurant, but like its surprising location, Reed Smythe & Company’s thoughtfully sourced inventory is full of unexpected curios, objets d’art, and handmade gifts. Founded by Mississippi natives Keith Smythe Meacham and the late author (and legendary hostess) Julia Reed, the store was born from the many personal relationships the two built with small-scale makers while filling their own homes. Today, the Nashville brick-and-mortar spot and the brand’s expansive online offerings reflect many of those early partnerships, including the Vermont glassblower who crafts their signature jewel-tone goblets and New Orleans-based Ashley Pridmore, who carves the casting molds for the bronze handles of their heirloom-quality oyster knives.

Jayne Thompson Antiques

847 Kennedy Bridge Rd, Harrodsburg, KY 40330

jaynethompsonantiques.com

Jayne Thompson Antiques isn’t the kind of place you stumble upon. The family-run shop, founded by Jayne Thompson in 1990, is located in an 18th-century brick home on 700 acres of Kentucky farmland. “We’re destination shopping,” says Thompson’s daughter, Lori Finke, who now runs the business with her husband, Mark. The Harrodsburg gallery (and accompanying 5,000-square-foot barn that’s stuffed to the rafters with hard-to-find English and Continental antique furniture, mirrors, and period lighting) is open by appointment only. But discerning buyers continue to seek out the Finkes for their unmatched expertise, breadth of inventory, fierce commitment to quality, and excellent service.

Manse

113 S Columbus Street, Corsair Aly Entrance, Alexandria, VA 22314

shopmanse.com

“Coming out of the pandemic, we realized it might be time to start something new,” says Andrew Coon, who left his corporate retail job and cofounded this chic Virginia spot in September 2021 with his partner, Adam Howley. The pair discovered their quaint 1,000-square-foot storefront while walking their dogs one morning in Alexandria’s historic Old Town. Renovating the space themselves, they cultivated an elegant yet inviting neighborhood vibe and turned to their network of small independent artisans to build a carefully considered array of tableware, linens, barware, elevated pantry staples, and other goods. But their garden effects, namely the collection of topiaries and hand-thrown planters by Ben Wolff Pottery (a favorite of Martha Stewart), attract the most repeat customers. Last fall, Howley and Coon channeled that success into a second Manse location in nearby Georgetown in Washington, D.C. It’s hard to leave either of their shops without finding a new obsession.

80 Acre Market

12229 FM 1650, Gilmer, TX 75645

80acremarket.com

As much a gift to the local area as it is a business endeavor, 80 Acre Market in Gilmer is the brainchild of Holly and Josh Smallwood. In October 2021, they transformed their East Texas property and family home into a community-focused event and retail setting that’s open every other weekend seasonally. The shop sells everything from furnishings and textiles to tableware and handmade soaps and is refreshed on a regular schedule. But you don’t even have to step inside the store to be able to enjoy the 80 Acre experience, which also includes free outdoor concerts, yard games, and bounce houses for the kids. A food truck rodeo satisfies hungry patrons, and a trail system and an on-site restaurant are in the pipeline next.

Wentworth

162 Wentworth St, Charleston, SC 29401

shopwentworth.com

G. Blake Sams, whose Charleston event-design firm is a regular on national “best of” lists, has always approached planning through a residential lens. “For our clients, I try to create moments that feel like an elevated version of them entertaining at home,” he says. Making the jump to interior design was a natural extension of the brand, and the firm’s portfolio grew to include a handsome studio and shop that’s not far from King Street. “Patinaed, handcrafted, and collectible” are words Sams uses to describe the Wentworth aesthetic. “This is a true reflection of the things I love—an ideal mix of traditional elements and eclectic surprises.” Beautiful linens, heirloom tabletop items, and novel gifts—plus exclusive partnerships with designers like Alvaro Picardo and Alix D. Reynes—fill the elegant space.

Kurtz Collection

Multiple locations; Wilmington and Glen Mills

“People often consider rugs to be an after-thought,” says Josephine Kurtz. But at Kurtz Collection, great interiors begin with the right floor coverings. “If you start with a rug, it immediately helps define the feeling of a room,” she notes. Her father, John, an artist, founded the business in 1979. Today, the second-generation company continues to sell the finest array of rugs (both new and antique) from around the world as well as an in-house line called New Moon, which is helmed by Kurtz’s sister, Erika. In the years since the siblings joined the business, they’ve introduced a full-service design firm and an interiors showroom where you’ll find lifestyle vignettes with original art, furniture, upholstery, mirrors, lighting, distinctive home goods inspired by their travels, and floor coverings—naturally. “We saw a gap,” Kurtz says of the expansion. “We realized that people who were adding new rugs might need help pulling it all together.”

TA Lorton

555 S Zunis Ave, Tulsa, OK 74104

talorton.com

Although she says she’s not a natural saleswoman, Tracy Lorton Salisbury, TA Lorton’s founder, has more than 35 years of experience on the retail side of the design business. She opened her landmark Tulsa store in 1988 and hasn’t slowed down since. In 2020, Salisbury purchased a historic 8,000-square-foot building in Tulsa’s Kendall-Whittier neighborhood. The former motorcycle shop is now a wonderfully reimagined home for her collection of well-made upholstery, gorgeous case goods, and artisan pottery plus other interesting objects that’ll add personality or a touch of humor to your space. The new venue also serves as a calling card for her expanding design firm, where fully outfitted rooms and an on-site kitchen allow her to display her talents.

Eclectic Home New Orleans


Eclectic Home

8211 Oak St, New Orleans, LA 70118

eclectichome.net

Owner Penny Francis delights in unlikely pairings, which means this sprawling Uptown spot lives up to its name. “I love all periods and styles of furnishings and wanted [Eclectic Home] to represent that,” Francis says. “Good design knows no time period.” Her unmatched penchant for complementing lighting, furnishings, and art with bespoke items has made her one of the country’s most sought-after interior designers and earned her firm, as well as her store, clients in all stages of life. The 7,000-square-foot showroom feels smaller than its oversize footprint; the team has an uncanny ability to make each product seem essential to the larger picture. A trip here is unforgettable thanks to the custom fragrance; the music; and even the adorable shop dog, Curry.

Casa Gusto


Casa Gusto

6316 Georgia Ave, West Palm Beach, FL 33405

getthegusto.com

Inside this converted warehouse, traditional antiques—like a Danish Baroque pine table built circa 1750, an Art Deco mahogany secretary from France, and a 19th-century terra-cotta bust of Frederick of Prussia—mingle with funky custom items like an in-house collection of hand-painted furniture and frames. “You’ve got to mix it up,” says Charles Peed, who founded the aesthetically alluring West Palm Beach shop in 2018 with his mother and brother. “If we only sold antiques, we’d be just another antiques store.” Most of all, though, the mother-son trio buys (and creates) things they love. Much of the stock reflects their own family history and includes picks like Old Florida-inspired rattan wing chairs with custom upholstery and papier-mâché botanicals crafted by artisans in Mexico.

ALKMY.

ALKMY

17 Dexter Ave, Birmingham, AL 35213

shopalkmy.com

Combining their creative chops, Kacy Holcomb, Mary Hayward Eudailey, and Ashley Spotswood (Eudailey’s mother)—who are an architect, a former buyer for national home-goods retailers, and a landscape painter, respectively—opened ALKMY in a 1930s cottage. “The idea was to have a friendly lifestyle shop that would service multiple generations,” Eudailey says. Their well-edited inventory reflects that open-door ethos and encompasses everything from candles and birthday cards to linens and specialty cutlery. They also carry antiques and original art—often from beloved brands that are hard to find elsewhere. But the real magic is in the next-level services they offer, including helping a bride update china she inherited from her grandmother and sourcing a just-right piece of art. Most recently, the team launched The Layer, a bespoke program that assists clients in personalizing and polishing their existing spaces.

Heirloom Artifacts

5133 Harding Pike Suite A10 Nashville, Tennessee 37205

heirloomartifacts.com

Nashville interior designer Stephanie Sabbe never planned on being a shopkeeper, but when the small space in front of her studio became available, she saw an opportunity to share her soulful style with a wider audience. Although it is located in a nondescript strip mall, from the moment you step inside, you’ll feel transported to another era. Dark, moody, and with an effortless flair for the romantic, the shop’s dreamy atmosphere makes it an easy spot to lose track of time. Heirloom Artifacts, which Sabbe likens to a general store for home decor, stocks the types of pieces she and her team use for full-scale projects, including custom pillows, an in-house line of pleated lampshades, vintage landscape paintings, linen aprons, and even a pair of skirted slipper chairs covered in bright citron velvet. Last year, Sabbe introduced the Thompson Branch lamp, a petite wooden tabletop piece she designed as a callback to one of her favorite vintage Jenny Lind beds. This is the kind of place where you can learn to knit or buy new drinking glasses—either way, you’ll leave happy.

Pillar & Post.

Pillar & Post

1647 Wisconsin Ave NW, Washington, DC 20007

pillarandpost.com

“I get such joy out of antiques and their stories,” says Daphna Peled, who abandoned Capitol Hill in 2016 to indulge her inner Anglophile. Inspired by her parents’ 15 years in England and the days she spent rambling around the British countryside hunting for antiques, Peled opened Pillar & Post the following year in a historic Book Hill storefront with plenty of charm to spare. “Shops in the U.S. that have English antiques tend to be old and cluttered. They often seem outdated,” she says. But inside Peled’s sunlit space, the pared-back assemblage of furniture—a leather-topped rent table, mahogany secretary, and metamorphic buffet table, for example—looks far fresher than anything collecting dust in your grandmother’s attic. Art, decor, and contemporary accessories from brands like Daylesford Organic and Sophie Allport round out the inventory.

Cotswold Marketplace

200 N Sharon Amity Rd # B, Charlotte, NC 28211

cotswoldmarketplace.com

No matter what style you’re looking for, you’re likely to find it at this 10,000-square-foot store with more than 70 vendors. Opened in 2010 by Melissa Vandiver and her daughter, Kate Vandiver Leary, Cotswold Marketplace is filled with vignettes that pull together furniture, linens, pillows, lighting, and locally made art (like Maggie Blank French’s impressionistic paintings of landscapes in the Carolinas). If that all sounds a bit overwhelming, don’t worry. Whether you’re redoing an entire room or just looking for one special piece, they have a helpful team they describe as a “wonderful mix of designers, artists, retail gurus, style setters, and general been-there-seen-that experts.” Cotswold is also a one-stop shop for gifts like vases and colorful glassware.

Design Supply

2817 2nd Ave S, Birmingham, AL 35233

designsupply.com

Often, decorators select the art to complement a room, but at Design Supply, owner Laura Vogtle flips the script by creating spaces around works of art. Her 9,000-square-foot shop and gallery in the center of Birmingham’s trendy Pepper Place district is a wonderland of striking settings. One large, open room is divided into dozens of meticulously thought-out displays, each centered around a piece—from bold abstract acrylics to oil paintings of soft pastoral landscapes. After the works are chosen, Vogtle and her team source rugs, lighting, accessories, and furniture to round out every scene and provide a full picture of inspiration for clients. But it’s not all for show. Each setup is entirely shoppable, meaning you can pick from different spaces or re-create an entire look at home.

The Paradise Antiques.

The Paradise Antiques

1769 Zulla Rd, Middleburg, VA 20117

theparadiseantiques.com

Deep in the heart of Central Virginia’s horse country sits a small shop with a blue door. This is The Paradise Antiques, and for those who love home furnishings with long histories and fascinating backgrounds, this place truly is paradise. Inside, find pieces sourced from around the globe—everything from eye-catching art to sumptuously upholstered furniture. Beautifully constructed wood desks, tables, and dressers sit beneath chandeliers dripping with strings of iridescent crystals. The owner, Ariane Carles, hails from Argentina and brings an appreciation for international sourcing to her jewel box of a store, which is nestled in the midst of fields where horses graze. Take your time appreciating every element, and don’t forget to enjoy the view: Out the windows are green pastures and thickets of lush trees. Browse the online offerings, inquire about interior design services, or pay a visit; The Paradise is open by appointment only.
