Nest, a recently opened home furnishing store in the Tannery Building, specializes in the “shabby chic” look. The store’s owner, Denise Edenfield is not stranger to the selling furniture on First Street.
“I had a store called The Faded Rose,” said Edenfield, a Bakersfield native who moved to Benicia in 1991. Most recently, Edenfeield was showing her furniture at Honeysuckle Rose.
Nest is part of the group of businesses that is beginning to fill the Tannery Building. “We’re all very happy,: said Edenfield. “The merchants all work well together. I think the Tannery is going to be a destination again.”
Edenfield’s talent for refurbishing furniture is obvious. “It’s always been my passion,” said Edenfield. “I do all the refurbishing and painting on the furniture. I use as many old parts and pieces as I can.”
The store caries a mix of the old and the new. Besides the refinished chest and chairs there are, among other things, lamps, tables, art and accessories like candle holders, vases and boxes for storage.
“I try to stick to the French farmhouse and industrial look,” said Edenfield.
Nest is located at 131-C First Street in the Tannery Building. Store hours are 11 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Tuesday – Saturday and noon -3:30 p.m Sunday.
