Meble on Milwaukee Closing
Per its sign, savings upwards of 50% will continue through Meble's inventory liquidation. Run by a mother-daughter design team, Meble's eclectic, and inspiring interior designs have appeared in hundreds of homes, and many international magazines over the past 12-plus years. Pictured here is a custom built bed that Hugh Hefner of Playboy Fame slept in, albeit for a photo shoot, along with other Meble merchandise, with the exception of the Bon Voyage pillow, which comes from Findables up the street, which is also closing. I just thought it was a fitting message.
On a pop to Meble about a month, or two ago, I learned the (simple) meaning behind the store's name: meble is the Polish word for furniture. I don't want to know the Polish word for goodbye, but whatever it is, I'm bidding it, and wishing the talented ladies of Meble good wishes in the future, and will truly miss walking through their store at 1462 N. Milwaukee, which feels like a gallery. It looks like I'm not alone, either, check out the Five Star Yelper raves.
