Our Story

In the spring of 2007 interior decorator Lisa Newman Paratore opened HOMESTYLE to provide retail shoppers with the opportunity to find extraordinary furniture, home furnishings and design-inspired gifts at affordable prices.   Awarded "Best of the New"  by Boston Globe Magazine, R.I.  Monthly's "Best of Rhode Island - Home Accessories,"  and Best of New England Travel™ - Home Accessories, HOMESTYLE blends furniture, decorative furnishings, gifts and art in a stylish low-key environment. Lisa's appreciation for design, quality, function and value affords HOMESTYLE's customers the opportunity to shop with her expert guidance, or simply browse at their leisure.

HOMESTYLE combines fine art, home furnishings and gifts for a uniquely enjoyable shopping experience.  The overall aesthetic is modern and artful without being stark.  Vintage and organic pieces are sprinkled among the clean lines of classic contemporary and whimsical items.  Art is an integral part of the environment.  A black and white photograph may hang in the same vignette as an antique impressionist painting, a vintage Asian trunk and a mid-century modern sofa, creating space that is both personal and interesting... not a traditional "furniture store" display.  We give special attention to offering options that appeal to both men and women.  An extensive selection of cards and wrapping service simplify and complete your gift-purchasing needs.

 HOMESTYLE  is open seven days a week in the Downcity neighborhood of Providence, Rhode Island.  Our regular business hours are Monday through Saturday from 10-6 and Sunday from 12-5.  We are also happy to accomodate evening hours by appointment.  We are able to validate free, 2 hour parking during regular store hours at the InTown Parking Lot whose entrance is accessed at the corner of Weybosset and Union Streets, less than a block's walk from HOMESTYLE.
