We are all abuzz here at Maine Cottage®. Our flagship store will be moving to Annapolis, Maryland this fall! The new location at 209 West Street, also known as the Annapolis Livery, is a large historic brick building loaded with character. In the early 1900′s, 209 West was the location of the town stable where locals could board or rent horses, teams and wagons. Exposed brick, vaulted ceilings and over-sized windows are just a few of the architectural details that define the wide open space for the new furniture store in Annapolis.
Nearly 2,000 square feet of space on the first floor will host the Maine Cottage® retail store. There will be a color bar with a large interactive screen where customers can work with a Maine Cottage® Interior Design Associate on choosing their color and fabric selections. You can expect to see more vibrant colors, fun fabrics and uplifting furniture along with hand-picked home accessories from American potters, photographers and rug makers in the new location. There are also plans to feature local Maryland artists and to host events for local Annapolis and Washington, DC design professionals. The new retail destination store will feature signature Maine Cottage® colors and the coastal look the brand has become known for as the design foundation for the space. Merchandising will also draw inspiration from the local nautical market and add elements to the store that have a distinctly “Annapolitan” spirit.
Above the furniture store, the second floor will house the offices for our design and product development team. Warehouse, distribution and administrative offices will be located 10 miles away at 451 Defense Highway, also in Annapolis.
We’re excited to have the talented team at Hammond-Wilson Architects as new neighbors. They are also working closely with us to design and outfit the space with charming New England-style store fixtures. Together, we will create a space filled with cottage charm that transports visitors to their favorite coastal retreat. Stay tuned for updates.
