In the winter you tend to spend more time indoors, and that’s when you might become aware that it’s time to change your home’s décor, and perhaps update your furniture. If you’re not sure what style you’re looking for, you can browse the major furniture retailers for ideas. But, in Lincoln, Nebraska, you can also find some smaller stores offering unique items for a more individual style. Here are five local stores for interior décor ideas.
Plum Creek Gifts
Often called “Lincoln’s best-kept secret,” Plum Creek Gifts on North 48th Street is a friendly, family run store which has been established for over 10 years. The store has 14 differently themed rooms featuring old and traditional pine furniture, antiques, rugs, unique handmade items from local artists, and many more home décor ideas. There are items for every room in the house but, if you can’t find what you’re looking for, they will do their best to find it for you.
Home & Closet
If you’re looking for a more retro and unique look for your home, Home & Closet on Prescott Avenue specializes in vintage furniture and home décor items, particularly mid-century. They are extremely knowledgeable and source their goods carefully for their quality, utility, and visual appeal. The inventory is constantly changing, but you’ll find sofas, chairs, dressers, mirrors, lamps, and much more. They also offer free delivery and deliver when they say they will.
