“Fun,” is one word Annabelle’s General Manager, Stephen Bryant, uses to describe one of the newest luxury businesses in St. Pete. And if their ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted by the Chamber last month is any indication, this fine furniture and interior design store is sure to please.
“We want to provide a different, better, experience than clients are used to with other furniture stores and interior design studios. It should be enjoyable. And easy.”
When asked how Annabelle’s will accomplish this lofty goal, Stephen replied, “Our approach is reflective of our team—it’s a bi-product of our culture, starting with an amazing staff that loves what they do.”
It’s clear from customer reviews Annabelle’s is answering the call. And it doesn’t end there. The new store, strategically located on 4th street just north of downtown St Petersburg, has a smaller footprint than Annabelle’s original location in Odessa—taking a more tailored approach to fine furniture and interior design. “With our relevant furniture brands, assortment of unique accessories, and array of fabrics, finishes, and wall décor, customers will see something new every time they return.”
“When we decided it was time to expand, St. Pete became a clear choice. We believe our concept will resonate well with residents. Some already make the drive to Odessa, so this new location will make us even more accessible."
A purveyor of high-end, quality, home furnishings and interior design, the family-owned business has been a Tampa Bay tradition since 1979.
After all these years, the Annabelle’s experience still resonates with customers,” says Scott Meister, Tampa native and Co-Owner of the family-run business. “We are not just a furniture store; we are the perfect mix of interior design and home décor retail. Our residential and commercial clients value our approach to interior design and continue to come back because of quality service and our wide selection of home furnishings and curated accessories.
“When we decided it was time to expand, St. Pete became a clear choice. We believe our concept will resonate well with residents. Some already make the drive to Odessa, so this new location will make us even more accessible,” says Meister.
With access to the country’s finest furniture manufacturers, Annabelle’s delivers. “We can find something for virtually any space or style,” Stephen adds.
Annabelle’s use of mood boards, swatches, product pairings and the latest 3D room-rendering technology allows clients to envision a home they love before it happens. “These are great examples of our level of service to clients. It’s also what makes it fun.”
Seeing is believing. So prepare for a little fun with your next visit to Annabelle’s new St. Pete store. Centrally located, the store offers easy access to Pinellas county residents. The new St. Pete store is also appealing to anyone venturing across a bridge from South Tampa or Manatee and Sarasota counties.
