#STL365 – The Foundrie

The Foundrie – Featuring the work of over 100 local and independent artists at Chesterfield Mall


The Foundrie is an independently owned shop at Chesterfield Mall in St.Louis, featuring handmade and vintage items.  Owners Shelah McClymont and Elizabeth Hahn-Lawrence, each designers in their own right, take the utmost care in choosing the best, most unique products and displays to set The Foundrie apart from uninspired big box retailers.


“We currently carry the work of 100 local and independent artists.  Products range from jewelry, clothing, and accessories to furniture and home decor…..and even records and books from local musicians and authors!  We love everything local and handmade, and are ecstatic to be a part of St.Louis’ bustling indie scene!”

#STL365 – New Habitat ReStore DesPeres Location

The Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis ReStore has expanded to Des Peres! IMG_20130620_150819_210

Similar to the ReStore Forest Park location in St. Louis City, ReStore Des Peres    specializes in new and gently used building materials and appliances, as well as some furniture and home decor. The ReStore receives donations from companies such as Lowe’s, Tree Court, and Mid-Am Building Supply, providing large quantities of certain items. However, the inventory is largely made up of donations from individuals, so you never know what sort of treasures you might find!

The proceeds from the ReStore go to helping build homes for Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis partner families in the St. Louis area.
ReStore Des Peres is located behind Sam’s Club on Manchester Road.

#stl365 – The Refind Room

Room VignetteLast month we posted about our STL365 campaign and whats it is all about. This week we would like to start our campaign off with The Refind Room:

The Refind Room is a furniture and home accessories store selling an eclectic collection of carefully selected, quality, previously owned items that look great in today’s homes. From mid-century to vintage to modern, The Refind Room offers customers a wide variety of styles from which to choose. It’s goal is to provide customers with unique quality pieces that cannot be found elsewhere, at affordable prices.


Room Vignette

All pieces are displayed in “room” vignettes, so that customers can visualize how each piece can be incorporated into their homes and with their existing furniture. The Refind Room is located in the old Brentwood Theater and holds design seminars, craft shows, art openings, and other events throughout the year.”



Room VignetteThe Refined Room is located at: 
2525 S. Brentwood Blvd
Brentwood MO 63144

#STL365 – What’s it all about?

#STL365  – Our campaign to highlight local gems this summer & beyond!

It’s no secret that all of us here at DesignSpeak love our city, and we know you do too. We frequently hear about so many great local places around town; places that make St. Louis a unique and vibrant community. Since we depend on so many of these small businesses in our day to day lives, we feel that they deserve to be highlighted for what makes them stand out.  Using our twitter hashtag, #STL365, and by posting highlights on our blog, we will endeavor to share these small businesses with you.

These aren’t your “big box” type of stores; these are going to be small local boutiques and businesses that are open to the public. Whether it’s a brand new local restaurant that just opened with an amazing design, a boutique that has a great selection or service, or a small city park that you might have forgotten about, we want to help our friends discover the city. Especially the designers, craftspeople, and local building resources we know and love.   If there is a place around town you would like for us to scout out, please let us know, as we might already have a connection there.


We will be posting our finds on Fridays to give everyone a bit of inspiration for those weekend home improvement projects, or for a place to kick back after the work is done. If you love our city also, and want to support local businesses, we encourage you to connect with us and join the conversation as we go out and explore what makes St. Louis unique.
