Koo de Kir. Wallpaper and Travel + Leisure voted them “World’s Best” for home accessories. “Improper Bostonian” honored them as “Boston’s Best” home boutique three years in row. Doug Wilson from Trading Spaces even shopped there for his $50,000 room. Now it’s your turn to check them out and cast your vote.
Koo de Kir is a stylish retail haven offering modern fresh homewares in chic Beacon Hill. For those of you that aren’t in Boston, you can visit their online store to shop their impressive selection (not as ahhh-inspiring as the real thing since their online selection is limited). This stylish retail environment also offers interior design services, and a gift registry. You’ll find merchandise that you’ve seen in Elle Decor, Shop etc., Breathe, Lucky, Domino, and all the other big glossies, so they’re right in step with the latest trends.
I like Koo de Kir because they carry items to suit every budget, the location is excellent, and you’ll always find something new to add to your favorites list. Plus, strolling along Charles Street with a latte in hand, stopping at The King + I for Thai, then hopping over to Koo de Kir for some retail therapy… it’s far too perfect of a day to pass by.

Eye candy is a lot more fun when it’s within reach. inmod isn’t about wiping the drool off your face and having to walk away. No need to sell your firstborn. Don’t have to go in debt. You just have to shop savvy. Sort the items on inmod by price so you can view them according to your budget. I scrubbed their entire site (I’ve got no life, dude!) and found some great items that are both affordable and sexy.
The Meringue lights (above) are sweet finds at $84.99 for the hanging lamp (there’s also a table lamp model), and $134.99 for the floor model. The Modular room divider, on the other hand, is the big exception here. It has a hefty pricetag, but it sure is built to please with it’s towering illuminated self. It’s the Heidi Klum of room dividers. Don’t you think it has this whole Sci-fi Fifth Element thing goin’ on? I totally dig it although I have no clue what I’d do with it in my so-not-a-swank-loft space.
PERFect for me!
To me, owning something purchased directly from it’s maker, so to speak, gives the item a feeling of being sacred. I cherish it for years to come. risd|works is perfect for those of us that don’t want everything we own to be stamped, “Made in China”. Here’s an aluminum kitchen timer that I like for only $15 from Jozeph Forakis, Industrial Designer.
The “Meep” pendant light with a die-cut birch veneer is as unique as it is beautiful for $260 by James Dieter, Industrial designer.
For $40, you can enjoy a beautiful glazed stoneware bowl from artist/designer Dwo Wen Chen.
