CHESTNUT HILL, MASSACHUSETTS (February 2018) – Boston Rustic, featuring three shops within a shop, will open a pop-up shop at Chestnut Hill Square (www.ChestnutHillSquare.com) this February. With headquarters in Hopkinton, MA, Boston Rustic offers custom farmhouse style furnishings, rustic special event and wedding rentals, and Blooms by Boston Rustic. Boston Rustic was founded in 2014 by husband and wife team Faleesha and Joseph Gaylord when they could not find the right pieces for the rustic theme of their own wedding.
"When we started to plan our wedding, we simply couldn't find the quality and style we were looking for in rustic rentals. We sought inspiration from others, and tapped into our own creativity to bring our rustic theme to life. After others saw what we had created for our special day, we began to get inquiries into how they too could capture a rustic style for their special events,” Faleesha Gaylord explains.
“We are now inspiring others and work with couples to bring their vision to their wedding day by offering creative and high quality event rentals, staging and floral design. Our team is made up of designers, artisans, carpenters, and an engineer. Together, we fabricate a mix of off-the-shelf and custom rustic furniture and decor for wedding and event rentals, as well as forever pieces for the home. While visiting our pop-up shop at Chestnut Hill Square, shoppers can browse and purchase our unique and hand made furniture pieces, event rentals, and even pick up a special floral arrangements for Valentine's Day or Easter," she continued.
