WICHITA — A new home furnishings store with a contemporary flair is coming to the Shops at Tallgrass near 21st and Rock Road.
Chance Shipman and Josh Ruland are opening Furnish My Nest to sell furniture, accessories and lighting.
Shipman says they’ll offer “a mix of classic and contemporary styling, but very functional.”
“We want it to be usable … furniture for everyone’s lives.”
Shipman used to have a shop in Topeka. He says he noticed that there wasn’t a lot of variety in the home furnishings stores here.
Also, he says, “The contemporary choices were gone.”
He and Ruland also will offer a redesign-in-a-day service for $399 in which, after a few meetings with a client, they’ll redesign a room with existing furniture and accessories and add some new ones as needed as well.
They’ll send the customer for a three-hour lunch and do the work.
“It’s a really affordable, fun service for people to do,” Shipman says.
Even though they’ve not opened yet, Shipman and Ruland are already thinking about a possible future expansion. Shipman says that’s what they’re hoping, anyway.
Look for the store to open sometime in May.
