For the Home
Domicile If you’re on the hunt for custom upholstery, Domicile is a good place to start. While trendy isn’t necessarily a word the staff throws around, keeping up with changing tastes is one of its strong suits. This season’s hot merchandise includes furnishings with cleaner lines, Asian-inspired accessories and furniture, diffusers, and statement wall art. 163 E. Lancaster Ave., Wayne, (610) 688-7088.
Great Estate Consignment Shop Everything old is new again at Great Estate, Bryn Mawr’s newest outlet for great deals and unique finds for the home. Marci Reber and Bobbie Cameron opened the shop this past May with a truckload of items from everyone they knew and a commitment to sell only what they’d want in their own homes. Set against apple-green walls and sunny windows, the space overflows with upholstered chairs and love seats, dressers, tables, coffee tables, end tables, desks, side chairs, lamps, artwork and accessories—all in near-mint condition. 701 County Line Road, Bryn Mawr, (484) 380-2174.
Origin & Ash Eco-chic before it was mainstream, Origin & Ash has been transforming ho-hum interiors with its unique furniture and accessories for the past decade. “One of a kind” may be ubiquitous these days, but it takes on a new meaning here. Along with handmade furniture crafted with reclaimed wood and hardware by co-owner T.R. Risk, you’ll discover a whole new source for original artwork and frames (made out of antique lumber), not to mention a fabulous collection of vintage handbags and jewelry, handmade and vintage lighting, and a surprising selection of modern accessories and hand-blown glass objects. 876 W. Lancaster Ave., Bryn Mawr; 510 E. Barnard St., Unit 7-8, West Chester; (610) 527-6627, originandash.com.
Simply Cottage The Italian chandelier hanging in the window at Simply Cottage shimmers with porcelain and glass flowers, exemplifying this understated store’s eye for detail and distinctive lighting offerings. A range of price points makes for a shopping experience that’s not too daunting, and a focus on “special” items means you’ll find things you won’t see anywhere else. Along with its new and vintage lighting, Simply Cottage offers four upholstery lines at different price points and with their own styles, an imported line of linens for bedding and accessories, and window treatment and upholstery/slipcover services. Design consulting for primary and secondary homes is a forte of this casually elegant shop, as are custom creations to fill those really difficult spots. 367 W. Lancaster Ave., Haverford; (610) 642-2905, simplycottage.com.
