I selfishly hesitated to even feature Amphora — in large part because my family has purchased so many things for our home here since moving to Park Ridge in August (as well as several Christmas gifts like lotion and soap assortments, decorations, etc.), and we jokingly feared the added exposure would make it a bit too popular.
But alas, this furniture and home goods boutique in Uptown is just so worthy of attention that it could not be denied.
Owner Debi Spellman, who doubles as an interior decorator, makes your home design dreams come true by offering a variety of items, ranging from stylish couches, chairs, barstools, dressers and end tables to pillows, frames, art, candles, dishes and much more.
And here’s the kicker: Everything is at a near wholesale price point, meaning it’s very possible to piece together an entire room, or just finish off a space in your house with that perfect table, lamp or throw rug, without breaking the bank.
Need something in a slightly different color or style? Debi will even check the inventory at her warehouse to see if there’s a better match.
“Amphora is so affordable and a go-to place for home goods, furniture and cute gift ideas — plus personalized attention and design ideas,” says Park Ridge resident Debbie Podmore. “The inventory changes regularly, so every time you go back, you’re experiencing something new. The quality and affordability never changes, though.”
