Perusing the floor at Mulberry’s Home is like walking through a a colorful Pinterest board come to life. An eclectic collection of vintage rugs, modern homewares, and statement pieces gather decorative styles from across the globe and fashion eras into one space.
Olcott’s colorful East Coast preppy (he’s from Hartford, Conn.) meets Left Coast cool. It’s a style also evident at his new store, Mulberry’s Home, which the couple opened in a converted public library off Piedmont Avenue in Oakland, after seeing a need for a place selling large furniture.
Best store for glam furnishings
Mulberry’s Home Formerly a Spanish-style home, then an Oakland public library, this brand-new home store is a panorama of glamour and color with a dash of nostalgia. Chad Olcott, who also owns Mulberry’s Market in Piedmont, saw a need for a store in the area selling large pieces. The Cali-cool meets preppy-color vibe includes 4-foot photos of Nice beach scenes from the 1950s, a Black Ferret four-poster bed, a marquee “Home” sign, the Sputnik chandelier from Arteriors and luxurious Fornasetti Profumi candles.
On Oct. 16, Olcott and Pochop’s warm Mulberry’s Home store opened to the public on Piedmont Avenue for the first time, showcasing high-end home furnishings, decorations and gifts. The store is in the old Piedmont Avenue branch of the Oakland Public Library, tucked slightly off Piedmont Avenue on 41st Street. The address of Mulberry’s Home is 160 41st St.
