Living Spaces, the fine furniture and accessories store located in St Andrew's Golden Triangle, is ready for the wedding season. The quaint store, formerly located on South Avenue, has introduced a bridal registry to its already exciting inventory of furniture and accents for the home. This will definitely ease the problem of what to get a couple embarking on their new journey.

The bridal registry includes original pieces of art and furniture for the entire house. The registry comes complete with the catalogue of famed American artist Michael Aram whose works in metal will excite shoppers. The store's entire inventory can be viewed at the website at: http://www.livingspacesjm.com/. From antique to contemporary, Living Spaces has something for every taste.

On a recent visit, Maureen Shaw, owner of the establishment, told The Gleaner, "We have expanded our product offering to include an unforgettable selection of bridal gifts. The items fall directly in line with traditional bridal registry gift items. Some of the items include charming collections of flatware, stemware, dinnerware, wine and bar accessories, and decorative platters. We also offer delivery for everything in the store, there are no limitations," she said.

 

Items affordable

 

Alison Shaw, store manager, adds, "Being a small business is tough, and because of this our Mandeville store had to close; now we operate only the Kingston shop," she said when asked about prices of the items. But although items might not be cheap, they are affordable, the manager added.

The elder Shaw said she always had a liking for antique furniture and that led her to open the Mandeville store. "I was experiencing a new lease on life and used that energy to start my business in 2003," she said. That led her to respond to customers in the city, but with the fallout in the bauxite sector, the first store had to close.

Living Spaces now has sale on home accents and cushions and, very soon, Vietri Italian cutlery will be added to the new bridal registry's inventory.
