Changing Rooms

New stores are opening across the metro, offering even more great places to find updates for your wardrobe and home.

Madewell is bringing its classic-meets-trendy women’s apparel, shoes and accessories to the Country Club Plaza in August (at 309 Nichols Road), joining fellow new arrival Vineyard Vines, set to open in June, and recent addition Zoe’s Kitchen. You can also now find the third U.S. story for luxury eyewear brand Barton Perreira, headed up by KC native Bill Barton. Grabbing a pair of the store’s frames will put you in very good company—Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt are often seen sporting Barton Perreira designs.

New home design shops are heading to the Plaza, too. Interior designer Jaclyn Joslin is moving her Coveted Home store and studio from Corinth Square to 610 W. 48th St. in May (stop by the current Corinth Square location to score great deals on furniture and accessories during the moving sale). Roth Living, best known for its amazing kitchens featuring top-of-the-line appliances from Sub-Zero and Wolf, originally scheduled to open last fall, will soon open in the Plaza’s Skelly building.

Kansas Citians can soon shop at the city’s first Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams store.

The metro will also boast new showrooms for several high-end home brands we’ve been swooning over for years. First up: Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, slated to open mid-April at Town Center Crossing. Then May 22, doors are expected to open to the KC area’s first Arhaus store, at Town Center Plaza, where shoppers can feast their eyes on a full range of traditional home furnishings with a dash of European flair. Later this summer, get organized with a little help from The Container Store, moving into Hawthorne Plaza in June. Restoration Hardware is also set to return to Town Center in the fall.
