About vineyard vines®, Palm Beach Gardens
The focal point of the space is an actual transom and aft portion of a fishing boat that stages the check-out process. Designed exclusively for vineyard vines by Jarrett Bay Boatworks, one of the world’s premier boat builders, the fixture serves as the visual reinforcement of the brand’s representation of the finer places and things life has to offer. The floors are reclaimed heart pine from an old resort in North Carolina and in keeping with the aesthetic of the brand’s other stores, the fixtures are teak and holly.
The new store is approximately 4,600 square feet and marks the company’s second retail location in Florida and their eleventh free-standing store.“ Palm Beach defines the iconic Good Life to so many people,” said Ian Murray Co-Founder and CEO. “The Gardens is where our customer shops and we felt it important to make our brand accessible to them in a comprehensive way.”
