Lillian August Flagship Store

Yesterday and today were very busy work days. I'm working on the installation of furnishings in a client's home...it's so rewarding and exciting to see a home come together! With that said, I started my day yesterday at Lillian August grabbing some stuff for this particular client's home. Lillian August is a mega interior furnishings venue with it's flagship store located in Norwalk, Connecticut. To walk into Lillian August is to enter a magical world! Their selection of furniture, lamps, mirrors, accessories, custom pieces, carpeting, outdoor decor are varied and impressive! They also have in-house interior designers for the homeowner working on his or her own. And, for interior designers they have a trade program. This store has become one of my favorite sources for endless possibilities under one roof. Here are some photos I took yesterday to showcase a little sampling of Lillian August's offerings.
Have you been to Lillian August? If so, I'd love to hear your thoughts!
If not, and you'll be in the area I strongly suggest stopping by for some serious eye candy!
Check out their website: http://www.lillianaugust.com/

The first 2 photos are amazing!
I would love to visit this shop. I live in California and don't think that will be happening, but what a great resource for you!
Thanks for the online link... I'm off to check it out. Good Luck on your installation. Please post photos when it's completed.

The top picture is gorgeous - that sofa with the washed blue and antique white is very French provincial and the lampshades and bases are beautiful. The last picture - are they rugs/carpets because they are beautiful.....can you send some over here?
Lovely post!

I'm glad everyone has enjoyed! If any of you plan a trip...let me know...I might meet you there!

Tina, I almost wrote in the post that packing a lunch is necessary...you won't be in and out. They also have free cookies and Starbuck's which makes the shopping experience a touch sweeter!

I live by the store in farmington/west hartford and I love it. Did you know they just started a blog? You should check it out!

Hi Fran,

Yes, I knew that they just started a blog. When I was there on Monday I spoke with the president/CEO and he filled me in...how far in Farmington from Norwalk? Don't you just smile walking into the store?

Love your blog! I have passed signs for this store when I drive my son back to school in Boston. I never knew what it was. I'll have to leave extra time to check it out next trip.

I just found your blog- it's great! The light fixture in the first photo is gorgeous. I'm looking for one for our entry and it would be perfect. I just noticed it was in today's Cote de Texas post too!

Goodness do I love what I see here. I purchased a Lillian August secretary last year and treasure it every day. Your post makes me wish they had a showroom nearby. :-)

I worked in the Greenwich store of Lillian August for five years. Great experience, learned an amazing number of great venders and products.
