Gabberts Fine Furnishings by Design
Little Canada, Minnesota

In a move that would change the landscape for high-end shoppers in the Minneapolis market, HOM Furniture wanted to open a new multi-brand store in the Twin Cities metro area featuring Gabberts Furniture

We designed the 42,000-square-foot Gabberts store-within-a-store to be a wow starting with its own entrance replete with white marble flooring, dramatic drapes framing 20-foot windows and a 700-piece chandelier. The luxury statement sets the tone for the Gabberts experience, as does the first vignette guests see, a clean, upscale contemporary/modern interior anchored by a towering fireplace. Jaw-dropping lifestyle vignettes inspired by actual shelter magazine features and cover stories elevate the store’s visual impact. There’s a chic environment patterned after Giorgio Armani’s vacation home in Switzerland near St. Moritz just as it appeared in Architectural Digest. Another vignette replicates actor Patrick Dempsey’s Malibu living room, complete with bookshelves stacked with real logs and an impressive floor-to-ceiling fireplace.
