interior fit out of 3,800 SF retail store at Garden City Center for second Barrington Books to feature books, gifts and games

Solution

PCA worked with independent bookstore Barrington Books to design the second location for their brand in Rhode Island. The design uses lighting, custom cabinetry, color palette and layout to showcase books, high-end gifts and games.

A “mobile” lighting fixture made of pages from books creates a whimsical focus for current best-selling books at the entry. The owner’s antique car – Dolly – is positioned to draw interest from shoppers passing by the re-designed storefront outside. The Giving Tree sculpture provides a bright story-telling area especially for children. The variety of materials and finishes used along the perimeter and for the islands within the space create the feeling of an eclectic place that grew up over time, while organizing and showcasing items in an uncluttered and clean style.
