Anyone who may have visited Outfest or the Midtown Village Fall Festival this weekend may have noticed a new business on the block. HOST Interiors, an outpost for interiors and home decor featuring Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, has opened its third location on 13th Street. This new shop (HOST also has showrooms in Chestnut Hill and Old City) features custom design services, as well as a fresh collection of furniture and home accents we love, like swanky cocktail tables, etarges and desks that can turn a drab home office into a sophisticated work station.

HOST’s in great company, too, on a block with several other go-to destinations for kid’s stuff and grub, including Nest and Green Eggs.

At the recent opening last week with plenty of the Gayborhood’s who’s who in attendance, samples from the collection were on display with a staff available to help nesters choose the right furniture and accents that can be customized for any style – from traditional to more contemporary. Bob Williams and Mitchell Gold also stopped by to launch the new store, which is owned by Philly’s Doug Reinke.
