Somewhat painfully named, the essence of the store is somewhat self-explanatory: lighting. But that doesn't illuminate all that's within, since the showroom is filled with original antique and period lighting. Styles date all the way back from the late 1800's to the early 1940's, and cover broad areas from art deco to neoclassical.
Particularly for smaller dwellings such as apartments and lofts, but certainly not limited to them, Lotus specializes in handpicked, one-of-a-kind Chinese antique furniture, art and accessories (the latter including items such as tables, pillows, etc).

Perhaps pricey, but you get what you pay for here.
J.D.

A store with a clever name always catches my attention, and this one didn't disappoint. Located on a corner in the heart of the Pearl, this store specializes in traditional and contemporary slipcover and upholstery sofas, along with other interior accouterments.

A perfect name for a store if ever there was one, Furnish will furnish your home with modern and high design, of both local and European origin.
