“No bunk. No junk. No imitations.”
-Barney Pressman, founder, Barney’s New York
Inspired by Mr. Pressman's vision, we aim to connect you to beautiful and unique home furnishings and adornments from all over the world. When you enter our store, we want you to be able to take home something special: a hand-selected treasure from the Paris flea market; a creation from a small artisan found during our travels; a piece of the hottest jewelry from Greece; a gorgeous Persian carpet; handmade porcelain dishes from Australia; or a different gem entirely chosen from Homebody’s trove of curated treasures. So much of what is available today looks similar from store to store. Our job is to gather the uncommon item, something that is both lovely and rare, and bring it to you to individualize the space in which you live.
Homebody strives to be an alternative to the big box stores one sees throughout our city. We subscribe to the philosophy of Georgia O’Keeffe, who, in rebelling against the mass output of the Industrial Revolution, promoted the idea that everything a person chooses to live with -- art, clothing, home decor -- should reflect a visually pleasing aesthetic, and should be done beautifully. Thus we embrace hand-made items derived and produced from individual creativity and skill.
Every item in Homebody has been carefully hand selected with love for you and will bring a splash of beauty into your home and life. We trust that it is as fun for you to shop here as it is for us to gather the pieces
We carry beautiful items from Europe, Iran, Australia, South Africa, India, Japan and the US.
We carry a constantly evolving selection of fresh inventory for both you and your home that includes pillows, throws, rugs, lighting, furniture, bath and table linens, pottery, glassware, flatware, candles, coffee table books, decorative items, bath and body products, scarves, hats, fine jewelry, unique bags and pouches, gifts and much, much more.
