There’s a great little retail center a few blocks from my office and I like to pop in when I am picking up lunch to see what’s new. One of the best places to visit is The House Downtown. The shop has a coastal vibe that reflects Baltimore’s maritime heritage.Stephanie Gamble, the owner, has a great eye for design, and in addition to selling beautiful furniture, furnishings and gifts, she provides custom design services. And her staffers, Casey and Elizabeth are just wonderful and so friendly and helpful.
The House Downtown carries a range of lines including Mitchell Gold & Bob Williams,
Dash and Albert Rugs, and many more.I love wandering around The House Downtown because I love almost every single thing in the store. Here are some of today’s favourites.
Wonderful long engravings of whales.Two great sofas. One in a white linen slip cover,and the other in an oatmeal cover.Love this dog! And the green glass balls behind him.This has the look of a Zuber wallpaper. It’s hand-painted onto silver leaf. It’s just stunning.
I’ve never seen milk-glass balls like these. They’d be perfect for a winter centerpiece. One thing that always impresses me is the artwork that is always scattered around the shop, often featuring birds.
I am sure that you have a great shop like this where you live. Stop by and check it out!
