Store History

  • Founded: 2009
  • Founded by: Heather Stauffer
  • Headquarters: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Just outside of Philadelphia in Chestnut Hill is a small shop that carries major modern brands — Chilewich placemats, Fatboy ottomans, Thomas Paul serving dishes — as well as out-of-the-ordinary art like paper mache animal heads and insect displays by Christopher Marley.

Owner Heather Stauffer describes the shop's aesthetic as a healthy balance "between a traditional and modern demographic." Alongside a few big-ticket furniture items, Roots focuses on lighting, gifts, and accessories. It's the kind of well curated store that's a good stop for a housewarming present or a quick pick-me-up for your home.
