Fofie & Mia—an exciting new concept in furniture, furnishings and fun—celebrated its grand opening this past September at its Boston Post Road location in Larchmont.
“We’re two sisters with a shared passion for people whose originality and personality are contagious,” says Sophia Karipides, whose twenty years of design experience at leading fashion houses drives the store’s eclectic personality. “At Fofie & Mia, we’re inspired by innovation, cater to the fine taste of our clients and welcome the talents of selected interior designers.”
Hardly a static furniture emporium, Fofie & Mia will connect customers and creators each day in its warm, cozy and intimate workspace. Customers can discover vintage, handmade furniture on display or have their own pieces built to their specifications by the talented on-site craftsman, Rafael Figueroa. From magnificently restored armoires and dining tables to oversize designer couches and high-end accessories (pillows, rugs, blankets and candles), the selection will change frequently.
“We invite customers and neighbors to bring us their imaginations and ‘must-have’ lists. If we don’t have what they crave, we’ll create it or find it for them—no need to run around town. Instead, relax and enjoy our delicious coffee—it’s always ready,” adds Maria Katsaros, the store’s event and marketing director, who promises a number of friendly get-togethers at the location. 2417 Boston Post Road, Larchmont, NY; 914-275-0375 or 888-417-6017; fofiemia.com
