Best of Philly 2006 Chic, Affordable Furniture
Chestnut Hill’s newest shelter boutique is a welcome addition to the Avenue. The main attraction is the LEE line of upholstered furniture — a notch above Crate & Barrel, yet, surprisingly, more affordable — that can be customized in more than 500 fabrics and 60 different leathers. The Paris club chair looks stately in distressed chocolate hide ($1,759), and the sleek dining chairs start at $379. Custom-made Shaker-style sideboards, Italian pewter tabletop items by Match and custom rugs by Merida round out the inviting mix.
