Your Place or Mine?

www.leichic.comAfter months of getting lost on the yellow brick road of interior design, you finally found a straight path from your empty room, past design books, to your very own Room in a Book. Everything was crystal-ball clear until deciding where to buy décor for your home’s new look got you all turned around again.

Turns out you were skipping in the right direction after all. Riding the success of her book Hawai‘i: A Sense of Place, sought-after interior designer Mary Philpotts recently opened Place, a unique lifestyle store for people seeking to finish their living spaces with eclectic, personally selected items from east to west.

www.leichic.comPlace is the only local retailer of A. Ruden and Klein sofas and New Leaf House & Garden plants, and also has a broad assortment of lighting, contemporary and antique tables and chairs, Michael Aram metal-works, ceramics and local art. Look close and you’ll also see global wares like Indian tunics, adorable flower kimono rings, and elegant Indonesian knit wraps.

Wander around or whisper your list and budget to the staff – they’ll locate what your room needs or that perfect gift for the friend who has everything.

Because there’s no place like Place.

No heel clicking required.

Place. 40 S. School Street, #100 , Honolulu . 808.275.3075
