Re-Furbish


Last weekend on a Starbucks outing with my dear mother, we took a slight detour down to the new space that home furnishings mecca Furbish is occupying. They have moved from the tiny little bungalow on Glenwood to a large warehouse space closer to downtown and Glenwood South; I say warehouse lovingly, as the room vignettes that pack Furbish’s space feel like anything but a warehouse. It’s an ambitious expansion for Furbish, and they have hit the nail on the head. It’s a color/pattern/cozy explosion. They have such a great mix of “forever” pieces and fabulous wild accents that can be the centerpiece of a room. The store was opened about 2 years ago by Jamie Meares, who also writes the popular blog “I Suwanee” (Southern, no?). Furbish also does full design work for people who need a highly trained eye to help them out. They also have great gift items: candles, jewelry, some really fantastic coffee table books. It’s such a warm place, and honestly, I go into textile overload there-so many gorgeous fabrics and over-sized chairs. If they would let me I would move in. If you haven’t been by yet, you must. My mother complained the whole way, and then thanked me on the way out. (You did.) Not only that but You. Can. Shop. On. Line. Yes, you can shop their awesome website. You are welcome.
