Home furnishings store to open in Madrona in November

Yesterday we shared details of Zaw Pizza coming to 34th Ave. Today we have the news on its neighboring business in the former Monad space.

A new home furnishings store called “Henry and Frances Home” will be moving into the vacant storefront at 1135 34th Ave. The owner, Madison Park resident Kate Sehulster, plans to open her doors on November 1. 

“I’d always wanted to open a store, and when the space came available it was perfect,” Sehulster said.

Sehulster has a background in interior design, textiles and wall coverings. Her shop will sell new furniture and consignment pieces, “the best of the old and the best of the new.” She’ll also offer lighting, candles, books, and works from local designers and artists. Eventually she plans to knock down the back wall to add more space to the 250 square foot front room.

With the post-work evening traffic from local restaurants, Sehulster plans to stay open in the evenings until 7pm.

Originally she considered calling the store Grandesse, but decided on “Henry and Frances,” based on her sons’ middle names. 

What are your thoughts on the newest business to come to Madrona?

  1. Kate has an incredible design sensibility–the wall colors are rich and alluring perfectly accented with original art, exquisite furnishings and a splash of FUN (mink pillows).
