The self-titled home store from event planner Jung Lee has officially opened its doors at 25 West 29th Street. Jung's background is in beyond-fabulous events, so we were surprised to hear of her passion for high-low decorating on a preview tour of the space. From $21 acrylic goblets to don't-even-want-to-know-the-price-tag Hermes place settings, the store is merchandised beautifully from an inspiring range of price points.
Best of all, everything in the store has been vetted by Jung throughout her events career. Translation: whether you spend a little or a lot, you're walking away with product she really believes in (and has probably use for more than one society wedding).
Beyond decorating your own home, the store is full of gift ideas. There are even flowers for sale, so you can grab a quick bouquet along with a hostess/birthday/bridal gift on the fly. Surprises like $95 beach towels—which are so richly colorful that they're displayed on the wall and definitely could pass for art—and a giant indoor swing make this store stand out.
