‘Collected and refined:’ Boise designer will launch large new furniture store

Judith Balis has been an interior designer in the Treasure Valley for the last 17 years. In 2018, she opened home goods shop, Feather and Twine Home, which is located off State Street in Boise.

“I struggled to find beautiful, unique, and affordable furnishings and accessories for my clients locally,” Balis said of Feather and Twine Home. “So I decided to take matters into my own hands to help fill that void by opening my first store.”

The next step for Balis? Opening Bungalow Home – a 14,000 square foot furniture and home goods store in the old Hastings space on Fairview and Cole in the Westgate Shopping Center.

“I’m trying to create a ‘one-stop shopping’ experience for folks to completely furnish their homes from sofas to the accessories on their coffee tables, without looking like they just bought the whole vignette off a big-box furniture store floor,” Balis said.

Balis said the “vibe” of Bungalow Home will be more “collected and refined, but also very relaxed and comfortable.” Products will also be available in a variety of prices and will come from many different vendors.

“Our store will be nothing like anything else in Boise, and the timing could not be more right,” Balis said. “With so many people moving here from larger cities, they are used to having these more curated options available, and we are here to once again, fill a void that is long overdue.”

In addition to having hundreds of furniture and decor pieces on the floor, designers will also be available to create custom looks and made-to-order pieces.

Unlike Feather and Twine Home which is only open three days a week, every other week, Bungalow Home will be open 6-7 days, every week. Balis says she is hoping to open doors in September.
