Today the retail business is all about the shopping experience. Yes, you can make a case about "price off" and the major discounters, but there is also something to be said about the way we shop and how we feel when we enter an establishment like this James Perse shop in Malibu. All of the furnishings are part of the new home collection of Perse and it is stunning. They will even custom size any of the furnishings. I would say it is one of the most refreshing stores I have seen in a long time.
It Certainly is a shop that says, "come on in and stay awhile." I would call the look Malibu Beach Chic. The building itself is quite beautiful. Massive shutters, bleached floors, soaring ceilings and welcoming sales people, offering drinks to refresh.
Plenty of books to inspire the shopper with comfortable chairs to ponder purchases.
Just like a Malibu Beach house the front entrance looks like a home perched on the sand dunes.
