Yesterday, I practically squealed with excitement when pictures from a new Ballard Designs STORE came across my Instagram! That was the very first time I discovered this exciting news! The new store is opening at the King of Prussia Mall in Pennsylvania TODAY! I am sure it will be a mob scene so I won’t even attempt the trip today but I am definitely planning one!!!
The mall is Northwest of Philadelphia and probably about 1 1/2 to 2 hours from my house. I could do that drive no problem! The mall also has some other amazing stores including Lilly Pulitzer, so the trip down there would totally be worth it! But I would make the trip even if Ballard was the only store there!
Here are a few of their pieces in my home…
The Alexander Martinot clock and the Newport Demilune with shelf. See more details here – A Ballard Vignette.
Here is my Sonoma Bookcase decorated for Christmas a few years ago. See more at Decorating the New Shelves.
And my dining room with the Waldorf Chandelier.
I can’t wait to head down to the store to see and touch everything in person. I have been looking for counter stools for my kitchen but was hesitant to order them without seeing them in person. Now I can! Hooray!!
If you want to see a preview of what the new King of Prussia Ballard Store looks like, head over to Home Stories A to Z. Beth attended a pre-opening event recently and posted a bunch of beautiful pictures. After reading her post, you will want to make a road trip with me.
I am hoping Ballard starts opening up more retail stores. I see a few listed already but they need to come to New Jersey!!
Do you have a Ballard near you?
Who would like to join me in a road trip?
