I am thrilled to announce that JAR Home – “Your destination for Elegant Home Furnishings” - in Weston Center is open for business. The owners of the business, Justine and Amanda Richards (hence the JAR), know Weston well. In fact, they grew up in Weston and went to local schools – Justine graduated from Dana Hall in Wellesley and Amanda graduated from Weston High School. They have worked in the interior design field for over a decade, both in Massachusetts and California, and now they are back in Weston with their fabulous business.
Located at 391 Boston Post Road formerly the site of Dragon Books, JAR Home is both a home shoppe and an interior design studio in which the Richards sisters “strive to provide a venue for customers to improve one section of a room or several rooms at a time. Our goal is to have an accessible local source where you can come in, relax, find inspiration and enjoy the JAR Home environment by browsing through fabrics, examining beautiful artwork and lighting options or simply playing with varied pillow and table linen combinations. We continuously work with our vendors to customize pieces with specific dimensions and finishes to help you achieve the desired ‘look’ for your home.” In addition to the many outstanding antique as well as unusual vintage pieces, the store features other lines and products including:
- Christopher Spitzmiller Lamps (beautiful ceramic forms with incredible detailing such as bases dipped in 23k gold)
- William Yeoward Crystal
- Jennifer Clayson Pillows (Jen is a well-known Weston resident who hand-paints each linen pillow cover with striking designs)
- Lance Wovens Leather Pillows
- The Hickory Chair Furniture Co.
- Visual Comfort Lighting
There are fantastic finds at a variety of price points at JAR Home. Items range from $45 for an Antique Chinese Ginger Jar from the late 1800’s, $95-$150 for Jennifer Clayson pillows and $200-$300 for Belgian Linen Woven pillows to $360-$600 for Visual Comfort Lamps, $1940-$2640 for Christopher Spitzmiller Lamps and $1100-$3550 for Hickory Upholstered Club Chairs. The store hours are generally Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. so stop in, browse, shop, ask for a consultation and simply just enjoy!
