One Kings Lane, a premier destination for home shopping and interior design services, will open its first store this summer in Southampton, New York, marking the brand’s largest-scale retail opening to date. One Kings Lane Southampton, which will occupy the town’s iconic former Rogers Memorial Library at 11 Jobs Lane, will give shoppers access to a breadth of the brand’s assortment, complimentary design consultations with in-house interior designers, and unique retail entertainment throughout the summer. The new location will be open Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend. The seasonal shop marks the first time the 11 Jobs Lane space will open its doors to the public with a retail partner. Built in 1895, the two-story library was designed by R. H. Robertson, one of the foremost architects of the late 19th century. One Kings Lane’s transformation of the 3,500-square-foot ground-floor space will allow the community as well as shoppers to explore and enjoy the revitalization of this architectural treasure.
In designing the layout of the space, One Kings Lane aimed to elevate the traditional retail format by creating an immersive lifestyle experience, showcasing product in a realistic and livable but also surprising setting. One Kings Lane Southampton will feature a curated range of product that visitors can shop in-store and online, including exclusive furnishings and the one-of-a-kind vintage pieces that shoppers have come to love and expect from the brand.
Additionally, the company’s complimentary in-house design service, The Studio at One Kings Lane, will be a key feature of the new location, providing visitors access to one-on-one appointments with the brand’s interior designers for projects of all sizes. Customers will be able to book appointments on OneKingsLane.com, where they will be prompted to answer a few questions about their project and then matched with a designer. Throughout the summer, the brand will also use the space for collaborative partnerships, interactive events, and designer pop-ups to engage the local community and Southampton visitors.
“Opening our first street-level physical retail location is a major step for One Kings Lane in our mission to help our customers live their personal style, and we are thrilled to be able to do so in such an iconic summer destination,” said Debbie Propst, president of One Kings Lane. “As we are always looking to push the boundaries of traditional retail, partnering with Newmark Grubb Knight Frank Retail to occupy the historic 11 Jobs Lane space felt like the perfect fit and will undoubtedly be a terrific way to engage the localcommunity and be an organic, local resource for home and design.”
