Revival Home helps customers invigorate rooms with vintage furniture items and gently used designer pieces by Baker, Ralph Lauren, and Kate Spade. Owner Arlene opened Revival Home in the summer of 2009 during an economic recession in hopes of equipping shoppers with high-quality homewares for reasonable prices. Using her background in art direction, she hand selects each item from estate sales in the Hamptons to populate her recently renovated 10,000-square-foot show room with antique flatware, china sets, and ottomans. Because Revival Home relies on consignment goods, its stock rotates daily, providing shoppers with new antique lamps to check for genies on each visit.
