Photos from terrain website unless otherwise noted
I may be the last to know, but a friend mentioned going to a wonderful new shop,
terrain, a new concept of the Urban Outfitters/Anthropologie group of stores, while she was visiting her daughter in D.C. recently. I believe her exact words were" Ann, you would just die there!"
I have never even heard of this wonderful place! So, I did what we all do when we want to get information these days - went straight to my computer and did a search.
Apparently this wonderful shopping mecca is a new concept for the company and is called Terrain at Styer's. From the photos it looks like a charming place to visit, to wander through for hours, and probably to fill a shopping bag!!
Terrain sells similar housewares you might find at Anthropologie and also carries lots of garden related items. The shop itself is set in an antique greenhouse on acreage in Concordville, PA, just outside of Philadelphia.
I found several sites for information about the new shopping brand. One great source is a fun blog called Shelter Pop. Visit for all kinds of scoop in the fashion and design world.
What I would give for not only the dishes here, but the incredible faux bois pot they sit in!
I stumbled across these beautiful photos while searching the web. I contacted the ever so friendly Laura Novak to ask permission to share them with you here. Check out her blog for more great photography and interesting features.
Hmmm...........trying to think of a reason I need to Philadelphia soon............... meanwhile, visit the website for tons more amazing photographs. What a teaser - I hope they decide to open in the southwest one day soon!!
