The designer storefronts are open for business round the clock, which means I can shop Bunny Williams' virtual storefront at 10pm on a Thursday night for a house warming present and won't feel like the hourglass is running out of sand.
To kick off the designer boutiques, they have nabbed designers with diverse points of view -- Bunny Williams, Alexa Hampton, and Laura Kirar -- all of whom have a unique design story to tell. These women are all changing the face of interior design today, and I can't wait to see who else they have waiting in the wings.
I dropped into the boutiques and the curated assortment speaks to the unique design sensibility of each designer:

With Bunny, it's personal. Her warm and welcoming interiors and Bee Line Home collection of versatile pieces give her boutique a cozy feel, where you just want to sink into a cozy tufted chair and read a good book.
A leading voice in traditional design today, Alexa has tips on how to create balance with proportion and symmetry, and offers elegant choices for a classic yet current interior.
With an artistic sensibility and nature as her muse, Laura's boutique includes gleaming objects she has designed, as well as rough hewn wooden furnishings and cool mid century pieces for a warm modern look.
