SummerHouse is owned by designer, Lisa Palmer. While living in Jackson, Mississippi- I used to love going in the little shop in Fondren. Due to a fire in it's old location in 2005- SummerHouse relocated to Highland Colony in Ridgeland in 2006. I haven't been to the new store- but have heard great things about it and have loved looking at the updated gallery online. Lisa Palmer has a wonderful style and I love how she mixes old and new.
SummerHouse was recently featured in the October issue of Elle Decor and this is what they had to say: "Lisa Palmer's fresh faced home-design store is a mecca of streamlined comfort. In the 6,700 square foot space, located near Jackson, fashionable furniture and accent pieces are available along with the services of a bevy of on-staff interior designers. The must-haves include cozy sofas by Mitchell Gold+Bob Williams (SummerHouse is the manufacturer's sole Mississippi retailer), stylish furniture by Oly, ceramics by Jonathan Adler, bed linens by Archipelago, and accessories by BoBo Intriguing Objects. Palmer also uses the shop to exhibit the work of established southern artists such as Paul Edelstein and Cathy Lancaster."
