After five years in University Park’s Snider Plaza, Nest has just relocated to northern McKinney Avenue. The vast 5700 square foot space is double the size of the décor and gift boutique’s previous home.
Inside, floating furniture displays are arranged in loft-style vignettes, interspersed with antique cases filled with designer jewelry and other curiosities. Just try and take it all in on a single visit.
“I love what this place is, and what it’s going to be,” says buyer and store manager Donald Fowler. His ever-evolving collection includes limited edition and artisanal products from around the world, like the hand-tied jersey scarves from Brooklyn that caught our eye on a recent visit.
Burled teak and rosewood cuffs and necklaces by Christian Graciel also tempted. Nest carries the Camaroon-born designer’s unusual wooden handbags as well.
A few steps away, colorful oversized pendant necklaces by Englerglass glitter like abstract holiday tree ornaments. At $65 each, these particular jewels are also quite the steal. Other items in store include Jonathan Adler ceramics and plush Missoni Home towels and robes.
Look for Nest a couple of doors up from Forty Five Ten. Fresh off the move, the store is still without an exterior sign.
