As you are probably all well-aware, I have a small obsession with Williams-Sonoma Home, so I'm thrilled to share my photos with you from their recent press preview! The incredibly talented and gracious Williams-Sonoma Home team flew in from San Francisco to oversee the opening of their newest location at The Shops at Columbus Circle. They gave their wide-eyed guests a tour of the store, which features imported fumed-wood flooring, thick grasscloth wallpaper, (which is available to purchase!) white wainscoting and built-in bookshelves designed to mirror a classic home rather than a retail store environment. Here is what I found... (click on each photo to see its full beauty;)
The check-out desk is reminiscent of the J.K. Florence reception room!
The store was designed by architect Howard Backen, and occupies the mezzanine level of the flagship Williams-Sonoma store.
What a cute idea for towel display! I always see beautiful Asian horse statues at the flea market, but I've never been into their serious vibe, so it's fun to see a new take on the look that tones it down and also makes it functional!
And there you have it! As usual, I'm inspired to completely redecorate. For those of you who need a bit of help in the decorating department, the retail stores provide complimentary design services in your own home to help you maximize your space and find a spot for all your favorite WS Home treasures ;)
