ISLAND INSPIRED

Bahamas-based interior designer Amanda Lindroth—a go-to designer for island dwellers across the Caribbean who restored the beautiful Dunmore hotel in the Bahamas and authored Island Hopping, a collection of design inspiration and personal stories—opened her flagship store on King Street last month. The Amanda Lindroth Collection offers home decor, tableware, and women’s accessories that reflect the designer’s breezy, tropical style. With an array of cane hurricanes and lanterns, wicker trays, seagrass-wrapped glassware, and block-print linens, this new boutique will help you add island flair to any space.

WOVEN TREASURES

If the idea of laying out at the beach on a brightly hued towel gets you excited, consider visiting Mungo. The new Spring Street boutique brings heirloom-quality woven goods to the Lowcountry by way of South Africa. With three stores established in Cape Town, Johannesburg, and Plettenberg Bay, Mungo’s Charleston location is the brand’s first retail venture in the United States. Mungo focuses on sustainability and transparency when creating their textiles: the shop features woven treasures such as linens, throws, scarves, and baby blankets. Plus, just in time for the opening of their Charleston outpost, Mungo released the Folly Beach Towel: a vibrant, contemporary take on the classic beach necessity. [121 Spring St., mungo.us]
