Thursday, April 9, 2015 | 7:30 pm

The Shop @ SMiD is the retail arm of Scott Montgomery Design Inc., representing the firm’s aesthetics and way of living. The store is hudsonan expectedly elegant affair, filled with home furnishings and accessories that not only bring delight and air of extravagance to every room but are also priced affordably.

Michael Hernandez of The Shop @ SMiD takes pride of the assortment of products housed within the store.  “We have a range of handcrafted, eco-sensitive beeswax candles, unscented if you prefer, or fragranced with organic essential oils.” There are also throws and linens, framed art pieces, coffee table books, and other products from mostly European brands.

Among the brands that The Shop @ SMiD carries is a line of one-of-a-kind aprons made by and sold under the name Chef Draden, a celebrity chef.  “They’re couture, they’re handmade. It’s a nice option that we have here that is exclusive to us,” says Hernandez.

Lina Forlino, who produces luxury throws and table linens, is another designer’s product line newly available in The Shop @ SMiD.

Recently introduced to the shop is Philippi, “an accessory line that we have from Germany. Primarily their pieces are nickel-plated products,” Hernandez says.

pillows sqCandle brands Chateau Versailles and Perin Mowen, Sugarcube Press, Agraria, Christian Lacroix, Architectural Watercolors, and Tilly Aires are the other upscale brands in the store.

Hernandez adds that they also have the SMiD Exclusive Leather Collection, which gave way to the creation of their leather-wrapped waste paper baskets! “It’s really hard to find a nice waste paper basket especially when you’re designing a high end home. You know you just don’t want to stick any old trash can in there,” reasons Hernandez.

The team behind The Shop @ SMiD is looking into expanding and creating their own furniture collection.

“We’re open to the public and encourage anyone to stop in,” says Hernandez.
