First & Main Design Market opens in Bothell

The new destination store offers retail furniture, vintage treasures, and professional interior design services.

Bothell’s Main Street has come a long way since a fire swept through several buildings during summer 2016.

Since its reopening, many business owners have said business is picking back up and even new businesses have settled on the newly designed street.

On June 6, the Bothell Kenmore Chamber welcomed First & Main Design Market to the business community with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. First & Main offers retail furniture and gifts, as well as experienced professional design services.

Business owner Chelsea Coryell said they’re mixing the new and the old. First & Main offers artisan-built furniture, special houseware items such as organic bedding and towels and vintage pieces that add a unique touch to any space.

“We want to bring design,” Coryell said. “That’s the thing that is different. It’s not really a furniture store…It’s a design studio within a showroom, in a furniture store. We want to show people that interior design doesn’t have to be for the wealthy. Everyone deserves a designer. We just want to help. Everyone deserves a beautiful house.”

The team at First & Main also offers professional interior design services. Certified designers will help with kitchen remodels, window treatments, area rugs and more.

In the near future, Coryell said the team hopes to host after-hour events in the store. They are currently building a kitchen that will host classes such as flower arrangements, table setting, wine tasting nights, and more. Coryell said these after-hour events will be a place where the community can come and spend time together. The team is also thinking of starting a home and garden channel on YouTube that will broadcast its home makeovers.

“It’s amazing how everything has fallen into place,” Coryell said about her business. “Getting to know the [business community] has been great. Bothell has been so friendly and welcoming.”

When finding a location for her business, Coryell said they wanted a place that had a real sense of community. They wanted that small town feel where people stayed in town to do their shopping, just like in the old days on Main Street.

“I’ve been really surprised at what a strong community Bothell has,” she said. “I just feel blessed…I feel like we’re home. We plan on being here a long time.”

First & Main Design Market is located at 10100 Main Street.
