One half of the vacant storefront on 34th Ave will be officially filled in and open for business this week when home furnishing and decor store Guesthouse opens its doors.
Co-owners Kate Sehulster and David Link were putting the finishing touches on the shop at 1135 34th Ave when we stopped by this weekend. They’re planning for a soft opening Tuesday, with shipments of merchandise continuing to come in throughout this week, and tentatively plan to be open Tues-Sun, 10-7.
As we wrote about when Sehulster first signed the lease, the store carries new furniture and consignment pieces, along with lighting, candles, books, and works from local designers and artists. From scoping it out briefly today, there are definitely a few pieces that look perfect for holiday gifting.
The back room of the store will eventually be a design studio space and textile library, she said, adding, “I’m hoping to do a lot of furniture upholstery, so people can come in and actually pick out fabric.”
It’s impressive to see how different the space looks now. Let us know if you have a chance to check it out this week.
