Rick Rochon, owner of Ludlow Home, offers home design services in addition to his attractive store's many offerings in Seattle's Phinney Ridge neighborhood, 15 minutes north of Downtown. The furniture and objects are covetable, with prices that range from investment to whim-worthy.
Rochon's displays alone are worth a visit, and perfectly embody his aesthetic: "An eclectic mix of English, Northeastern and Northwestern style featuring both modern furniture and handpicked vintage accessories."
Also check out the larder full of small-batch items.
Name/Title: Rick Rochon/Purveyor
Open/launch date: March 1, 2013
Inspiration for opening: I started the store as a popup market on Bainbridge Island in a former Boy Scout Hall and my style was very well received, so I took the leap into a full store.
Merchandise source: Custom pieces I design and manufacture in Los Angeles, vintage pieces from all over the world, and Larder items that are sourced from small batch manufacturers from San Francisco to Seattle.
Best selling item: People really love everything in my Larder, especially my custom jams and cocktail syrups.
Your favorite item: The Ludlow Chesterfield finished in Levi's Denim and Maharam wool, all handmade and gorgeous.
Favorite store (other than your own): Shed in Healdsburg or Merci in Paris. In Seattle, Kirk Albert.
