Get Ready to splurge

New design shop brings unique décor, accessories, gifts to Fox Chapel

Interior designer Kym Pelcher brings her design expertise together with a unique collection of stylish accessories and gifts in her new store, called splurge, which opens in May.

Located on Freeport Road in Fox Chapel, splurge is all about value-driven luxury – where timeless classics, updated reproductions, and a splash of Hollywood glamour are all presented in a sophisticated setting.“We scour the markets to bring an eclectic mix of hip-vintage and modern-inspired looks that you can’t find anywhere else,” says Pelcher who, over the past 10 years, has grown a successful interior design business specializing in residential and commercial design. Before that, Pelcher traveled the world as the home furnishing and accessory senior buyer for the prestigious Fortunoff in New York. She later founded Bay Imports, a direct sourcing design company importing one-of-a-kind treasures from around the globe.

At splurge, if clients don’t find exactly what they are looking for in the beautiful showroom, they can step into the design studio where a library of catalogs await to help them special order exactly what they want.

“Our clients’ experience is paramount,” she says. “Our job is to take their needs and ideas and transform them into exceptional, livable designs.” In addition to its standout products, splurge also offers complimentary design services ranging from complete custom bedding ensembles to custom wood flooring.
