As the not-so-quaint town of Mount Pleasant continues to expand, more and more stores are calling the Lowcountry their home. When Steven Shell, a renound furniture designer based out of London, began looking at various locations around the country to open his unique and whimisical furniture store, he knew he had to pick Charleston as soon as he arrived. Steven Shell has the philosophy of offering customisable furniture to consumers at the wholesale price. His first store, Steven Shell Living, has only been open since the beginning of May, but has been a great find for the locals of Mount Pleasant. The unique furniture found in his thrifty store gives its’ competitors a run for their money.


The very talented Steven Shell has learned the trade of designing furniture from being in the business for more than 25 years. With his background in trading antiques he was able to take his passion for design and create a magnificently created line of furniture.  His line of handcrafted furnishings is now available in 22 countries and is created by master artisans in Indonesia. With the majority of his furniture being constructed of Indonesian mahogany, he believes in replenishing the resources used in making each piece.


Steven Shell takes pride in his new store, and believes everyone should be able to afford professionally made furniture at an affordable price. With his beliefs, inspirations, and elements of design visible throughout the entire store, the locals have fallen in love with his British flare. The store’s goal is to provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere to its’ customers, while helping them find the perfect piece of furniture to complete their designing expeditions. Go in and visit this newly opened store and see the amazing selection of wholesale furniture that they have to offer.

Steven Shell Living is located at 642 Coleman Boulevard in the Moultrie Plaza on Coleman Blvd., and right next to Wild Wing. for more information, visit

Posted in Sales & Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 11, 2011 by Lowcountry Boil

On an enhanced site, Charleston’s Eclectic Interior Design Group has recreated its creative design blog. The updated site is easier to navigate and has an overall look and feel that is more in line with the company’s personality and design aesthetic. The inventive blog offers segments that include Decorganizing (decor + organizing which illustrates how form and function meet by organizing your home in an attractive manor), Designer Peeves (design pet peeves), Pro or Con? (topics where readers and other designers discuss), This Week I… (the day to day life of an interior designer) and Before & After (inspiring before and after photos of unique projects). Additionally, the Eclectic Finds site was also relaunched featuring one-of-a-kind finds and to-the-trade items including fabrics, furniture and accessories plus some custom creations that were designed with local artisans.

“On my blog and online shop, I share with my readers and clients quality designs, useful information and unique products that they might not normally have access to discovering,” says interior designer Sidney Wagner. “I get inspiration in various ways by scouring design magazines, blogs, books, shops and catalogs. Through researching new products and studying industry trends, I showcase functional yet well designed spaces.”

After years of extensive work in the industry, Sidney Wagner developed Eclectic Interior Design Group, a Charleston, SC full-service interior design firm specializing in both residential and commercial spaces. Sidney’s passion for design drives her to continually study market trends, research new products and search for unique pieces to complete her custom interiors. Sidney’s organization, creativity and attention to detail can be seen in every one of her designs, regardless of how grand or small the project may be. She named her company “eclectic” as it can be defined as “pulling elements from a variety of sources”. Eclectic Interior Design Group embraces this philosophy by blending pieces from various styles and periods to create beautiful and unique spaces that aptly reflect their clients’ personalities.
