This is the question that we’ve been asked before and expect to get asked again.
When we first started remodeling a 150 year old building on Main Street, our goal was to recreate a retail experience that rivaled what a customer would see in any large city in the world. In doing so, we wanted the store to be a destination in and of itself, similar to the way the LL Bean and Stonewall Kitchen shops draw people to Maine and Orvis and Vermont Country Store to Vermont. We wanted something that could lure people to our part of upstate NY.
Now, after 3 years of planning and making, we are so pleased to debut our collection of bedding and home furnishings at the flagship Mercantile in Sharon Springs. The showroom will be open on weekends and by appointment (tel. 518 284 6039). The collection will also launch simultaneously on Beekman1802.com and with Bloomingdale’s.
We know that buying a piece of furniture is not like buying a bar of soap or a pot of jam. Hopefully you will only buy a great bed once or maybe twice in your entire life. Knowing that our customers appreciate quality over anything else, we hope that the next time you have to make an important furnishings purchase (or hear that someone in your family is about to), that you’ll think of Beekman 1802.
