NEW YORK—Online home retailer One Kings Lane will open its first store this summer on Jobs Lane in Southampton, N.Y. The store, which will be open Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend, will include complimentary design consultations with in-house interior designers and “unique retail entertainment,” according to the retailer.

“Opening our first street-level physical retail location is a major step for One Kings Lane in our mission to help our customers live their personal style, and we are thrilled to be able to do so in such an iconic summer destination,” said Debbie Propst, president of One Kings Lane. “As we are always looking to push the boundaries of traditional retail ... [this] space felt like the perfect fit and will undoubtedly be a terrific way to engage the local community and be an organic, local resource for home and design.”

The seasonal shop marks the first time the 11 Jobs Lane space, the former Rogers Memorial Library, will open its doors to the public with a retail partner. In designing the layout of the 3,500-square-foot ground-floor space, One Kings Lane aimed to elevate the traditional retail format by creating an immersive lifestyle experience, showcasing product in a realistic and livable but also surprising setting. One Kings Lane Southampton will feature a curated range of product that visitors can shop in-store and online, including exclusive furnishings and the one-of-a-kind vintage pieces.

Additionally, the company’s complimentary in-house design service, The Studio at One Kings Lane, will be a key feature of the new location, providing visitors access to one-on-one appointments with the brand’s interior designers. Customers will be able to book appointments on OneKingsLane.com, where they will be prompted to answer a few questions about their project and then matched with a designer. Throughout the summer, the brand will also use the space for collaborative partnerships, interactive events, and designer pop-ups to engage the local community and Southampton visitors.
