Local Find: Furbish Furniture

Yesterday I was on my way home from the Junior League of Raleigh's 2010 Showcase of Kitchens Tour when I spotted this lovely shop on Glenwood Avenue: Furbish Studio. Jamie Meares opened the space about 5 months ago, looking for a fresh change of pace from the corporate world.

She refinishes and recovers furniture, making it adorably cute. The pieces have lots of personality with a dash of funk. Just what Raleigh needs if you ask me. :)

Here are some photos from the store, borrowed from the Furbish Studio blog I Suwanee. Clever quotes are placed throughout the space, like the one above.

I love this chevron settee! She said that she started with a collection of furniture she had stored in her basement, and she shops estate sales for new pieces.

Her dog Rowdy (yes, like the dog from Scrubs) is so cute! I love all the colorful pieces in the space. It's a wonderful mix of old and new. Be sure to check it out if you're around Glenwood South! Or read her interview with Decor8 here.


  1. I love this store as well! It is so fresh and full of cute items or even ideas! It is something to look forward too when I am biking downtown. LOVE IT!

  2. Buy and sell new and used modern, outdoor, office, bedroom and home furniture.
    Choose from a great selection of gently used furniture for every room in your home.
