That’s how Lorraine describes the store, which combines hand selected furniture, accessories, lighting, rugs, patio décor and so much more from Mexico, India, Indonesia and South America into a dazzling display, a feast for the eyes. It is hard to imagine, standing amidst all of this luxury, that the building itself was once the barn on the Otero hacienda, the walls of which date back to the late 18th century!
It took quite a leap of faith when Joyce & Ron Allred, already big fans of the Rowden’s fine taste, suggested they renovate the building and create a retail establishment to offer their wares to the world. Of course it helped that the Allreds commissioned the Rowdens to furnish the entire Tubac Golf Resort after the re-model, which led to many good connections in Mexico. Doing business across borders can be fraught with problems, but the Rowdens have been able to overcome the obstacles through the excellent connections they have made over the years they have been in business.
