Now back to Kate Marker Interiors and her new Barrington storefront.  You’ll find the space at 220 S. Cook Street, by Barrington Draperies & Shutters, near Egg Harbor Cafe and overlooking Barrington Bank & Trust.

She just opened the new shop a few weeks ago and says it offers a new level of service to her customers.   “We’ve created a space that could look like a client’s home, but it’s a storefront.  We feature vignettes of furniture, home accessories, lighting, artwork, rugs, fabric samples, catalogs and cabinetry throughout the showroom.  Now a client can actually come into our space, work with us and be hands-on.  Or they can just walk in and purchase a bowl or an accessory and that’s what really makes us unique.”

  1. Kate came over and helped me choose paint colors for my entire house. I loved working with her and still love each of the colors she chose. I’m happy to see that she has this new, lovely space to work in. Can’t wait to pay her and it a visit.
