When La Maison Fête founders Brett Cameron and Deanna Marano originally opened their shop on 11 Court Road in Bedford in May of 2022, their goal was to have an office space with a few things for sale. But, things didn’t quite go as planned.
“When we first opened, it was very small, and then we expanded over time, but had never quite thought of it as a retail space,” says Marano. “Eventually, we decided it was time for a refresh since we do have a lot more inventory now. We really wanted to design it as an actual retail space that was focused on our products. When we decided on how the store should look and feel, it was easier to start from scratch”
Their remodeled store features many of the same luxurious tabletop and home entertainment items, beautiful jewelry and gifts, and chic clothing that customers loved, but with a new, more open layout.
“We created more walkable space through the store,” Cameron explains. “We’ve added new shelving, which lets people touch things and move things around, and we painted the walls a greenish-gray color. We also added new clothing racks and lighting as well as increased the number of products we’re selling.”
Another addition to the store is a new dressing room.
“Customers used to try on clothes in the back of the store, which wasn’t very comfortable,” says Marano. “But now, they have a dedicated space where they can take their time and try things on.”
