A maze of model homes 

A whole new store to discover, and what you’ll discover is you could get lost here, only to forget yourself and spend hours dreaming about the perfect house. Cook up some crazy ideas in the kitchens, think how tasty those leftover tortes would be, late at night, after the dinner party is over and the guests have gone home. It’s just you, here, now. Imagine what you’d do with the chocolate sauce, pulled from this steely fridge, heated over a blue, blue flame until it’s just right.

So, maybe you can’t remodel your entire house today. Or this week. Or this year. You can still take home a treasure, a trinket, a small token of the good life you know you deserve. A shower head to drench you in cool water like a thunderstorm on a sticky summer afternoon. Drawer pulls, door knobs, silky tassels or a fluffy Tibetan lamb ball cushion, something to set your home apart from all the others. Something that says, uniquely, you. There are millions of combinations here. And you’ve only just begun.
