Since its beginning as a full-service interior design firm, Henri Interiors has grown and evolved. The St. Paul-based studio specializes in residential and boutique commercial interiors, assisting clients in designing customized interior spaces. In January 2022, the team expanded their inventory to a retail storefront in Wayzata, stocked with home furniture and accessories—all products adhering to the company’s signature and easily recognizable design aesthetic. The success of the Wayzata shop drove the brand back home—literally. On Dec. 22, Henri Home opened its new brick-and-mortar location in St. Paul, acting as yet another extension of its vision and brand.
“Henri Home St. Paul illustrates the familiar feeling and vibe of who we are as Henri, while also serving as a reflection of the neighborhood it is in,” says Owner and CEO, Amanda Lorenz, who intentionally selects the shops’ curated products. Some pieces will be available at both locations while others will only be available at a specific shop.
“From candles poured by a company that employs and supports previously incarcerated people, to bags hand-stitched by women in Haiti, to fair-trade pottery and glassware handmade in Mexico, we have something for everyone,” Jamie Otte, brand manager, explains.
To celebrate the new location, we asked Lorenz and Otte to share some of their favorite store products for the winter season and provide their insight into the best qualities of each.
This vase, handmade in Mexico, is perfectly over-scaled to add drama and warmth to your home and plays beautifully by contrasting our pure white winter landscape. We recommend filling it with large branches forged from the outdoors. -AL & JO
Available in both an earthy Sweet Balsam and fresh Waxing Moon scent, this candle is suspended in a handblown glass vessel that emulates a warm, glowing moon when lit. -AL & JO
Austin Apothecary Goods
Made with extracts of plants, grasses, seaweed, and algae to moisturize and protect, these products are a must-have in the cold, dry winter months. Not only are the products amazing, but the bottles are also a showpiece for any space. -AL & JO
Available in four neutral colors, these gorgeous throw blankets are crafted out of the finest Belgian linen that is imported to California to be handmade here in the US. (Worry not—just because these throws are luxurious, they can still be washed in your washing machine! We recommend hanging to dry.) -AL & JO
Crossbody Leather Circle Bag
Hand-stitched by women in Haiti with leather sourced from farms in Iowa, Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana, this bag will complement your winter wardrobe and wear beautifully into spring. Available in both black and cognac. -AL & JO
