Yesterday we featured Material Culture – an amazing 90,000 square foot store in Philadelphia. George, the owner, also has one awesome house. The outside spaces were filled with flowers, interesting wood structures and huge terra cotta pots (from George’s travels). Inside, his house felt like a museum but the type of museum where they encourage you to touch everything. You could tell that George really lives with and loves the items he sells at his store. We thought you all might like to take a quick peek inside (and outside) his home.
