Looking for those hard-to-find finishing touches for your home? You need to look no further than Pier 22 in the heart of downtown Venice Island. Recently voted ‘Best of Venice in Home Décor,’ you’ll find a stunning collection of high-quality and affordable furniture, area rugs, lamps, water fountains and artwork from local artists at its location at the corner of Nokomis and Miami Avenues.
Owners Matt and Patti Murphy have been involved in the home décor business for over 18 years – and it shows. From coastal chic to modern, they offer exciting, unique, colorful and well-crafted items that will surely enhance your home.
With the current growth in local home sales, they are busier than ever these days, with everything from total home make-overs to helping their clients find that special “know it when I see it” item. Patti focuses on the fresh and timeless “spa look” that so many women are looking for, using a mix of styles, exotic woods, finishes and textures to reflect the Florida landscape.
The Murphys use their store space to its best advantage by keeping a steady flow of new items in the store. Matt explains, “The wall mounted hand-blown glass plate collections are among our popular items. I individually design and install every collection for our customers so that each arrangement is different.” He adds, “Our area rug choices are also popular because we find designs that are unique and use the coastal blue tones and aqua that Florida homeowners are asking for. That’s our niche.” “Patti is a very talented buyer. She searches hard to find the best product lines that set our store apart from the others.”
In the three years since opening Pier 22, the couple has built a loyal and satisfied customer base, as evidenced by their online reviews. Patti says, “When you collect things you love – ones that are special to you – your house becomes your story.”
Come visit Pier 22 soon to discover an irresistible mix of beautiful furniture and home décor selections.
I think I visited every furniture, consignment, and home decor store from Sarasota to Venice until I stumbled upon Pier 22. I was so excited to see the unique pieces and variety of items to choose from. Once I started talking to Patti about the home my husband and I just renovated, she assured me that she could help me with the finishing touches.
Patti and Matt far exceeded anything I ever imagined. No only did they help our house feel like a “home,” they accomplished everything thoughtfully and quickly. My husband and I are in awe at how beautiful everything turned out and appreciate their help with the finishing touches. I highly recommend visiting Pier 22 and if you have “decorators block,” just ask Patti to help!” – Pam Burke

“One of the most Beautiful stores in Venice! The best part of it was the owners were so relaxed and easy to talk to. They make you feel very comfortable while you were shopping, which is hard to say about other stores on the Island. Their unique gifts are truly one of a kind, items you will not find in any store in Venice. Love this store!” – Melody Walz
