Welcome Back, C.R. Porter!
It was in November 1998 that owner Tammy Kelley was inspired to open C.R. Porter after recognizing a lack of furnishing stores in Stockton. Her beautiful store has since been the premier provider of living room furniture, dining room furnishings, bedroom sets and plenty of accessories. From the beautiful decorative Sid Dickens tiles to Jan Barboglio’s impressive wrought iron accessories – there is no shortage of one of a kind additions to your home.
“Each customer offers an opportunity to be creative,” said Tammy. “We’re creating relationships and providing a personal touch.” It’s not unusual for her to see something while she’s shopping and pick it up because she thinks it would be a perfect t for a customer’s home.
C.R. Porter prides itself on curating a collection of unique things that they promise have character. And since they work with so many boutique manufacturers, some of what they sell can even be customized. They love being able to build something and be creative. “One of my favorite things is the amount of options we have available to customers,” Tammy said, referring to the hundreds of upholstery samples that can be used to customize sofas in all shapes, sizes and orientations to best match the décor of your home.
The start of a new year is the perfect time to finally take on the home redecoration project you’ve been thinking of doing. So why not visit C.R. Porter for some inspiration? If the idea of redecorating sounds intimidating or overwhelming, Tammy is happy to set up in-home consultation appointments. “Most people know what they’re doing, but they need the reassurance and guidance,” said Tammy. “We prefer to work with people as opposed to working for them.”
No matter what you’re looking for, you can be certain that everything you see in the shop was purchased and displayed with care and thought. “We try not to duplicate things,” said Tammy. “We’re not afraid to think outside the box. And we buy things that we’d love to have in our own homes.”
