Sometimes we forget that places, just as people, can have strong personalities. Upriver Home is one of those places. Located on Broad Street in Milford, Pennsylvania, this home design store houses a carefully curated collection focusing on quality, simplicity, art, and natural elements. Their website states the store was "launched in 2004 with the idea that the home, be it primary, secondary or even temporary, is not only a respite from the everyday but a haven for inspiration."
Upriver offers furniture, lighting, books, glassware, bar accessories, candles, kids toys, and more. Their mix of new and vintage, bright and understated, give fine examples of the idea that things don't have to match, but can instead complement. High ceilings top the store's two rooms which fill with scents like balsam fir or basil blue sage from burning candles. Come in the rear entrance and you're greeted by a dozen or so plants soaking up the sun in their mismatched pots. Upriver's wares are fashioned from almost every material including metal, wood, ceramic, marble, and woven grass.
Upriver has a very cool jewelry collection. It leaves nothing to desire, especially if you're like myself-- a fan of brass and semiprecious stone. The store is truly one of a kind and a complement to its home in the heart of the Delaware River Valley region.
