One Kings Lane Makes Its Mark on Long Island

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y.—Two months ago, online home retailer One Kings Lane tested brick-and-mortar retailing with a pop-up shop here in Southampton, and all indications are that the experiment has been fruitful.

The One Kings Lane store, housed in the former Rogers Memorial Library on Jobs Lane, is arranged in inviting, room-like settings. Many of the items on the floor—a mix of name brand, exclusive and vintage pieces—sport hanging price tags and are for sale. The rooms can also be shopped online.

In addition, One Kings Lane offers shoppers complimentary design consultations with in-house interior designers, and concierge service from a dedicated design team for professional designers.

Several in-store events have been scheduled, including a Bunny Williams Home Trunk Show Aug. 14-17 and a Tini Table Trunk Show with Oomph Aug. 25. Senior designers from Lillian August curated a shoppable vignette earlier this month, while kitchen designer Sarah Blank shared design tips and summer sips with One Kings Lane President Debbie Propst in July.

There has been a lot of “positivity “around the Southampton store and physical retail is an important part of the brand’s future, a public relations executive said about the pop-up. The company declined to outline its future plans for the pop-up or additional physical store retailing.

Take a tour with HFN, which visited the store last week.
