Inspiration Station

Mapel strives to be more than just another boutique. So much thought and integrity goes behind everything you see online and especially in the store. We also love supporting and helping local artists and designers. For this month’s Inspiration Station we want to take a moment and put the spotlight on Petula by Katie Sweeney.

You’ve walked by her tables, pulled out a sweater from her armoire, perhaps even sat on one of her chairs or benches. Each of these pieces have been reclaimed and upcycled not just for Mapel’s décor, but also for you to enjoy as your very own! The best part is – Katie is just like you – she is a Mapel Lady and we love partnering with her!

Like so many single moms, she wants the best for her four children and for her home. What started out as an affordable way to uniquely decorate her home, quickly turned into a creative outlet to financially support her family! Thus began Petula!

Everything in the store has been discovered at a 2nd hand retailer. With her creative tender-loving-care she recreates each piece into something bright, charming and one of a kind.

Her favorite piece will catch your eye as soon as you come through the door. This chair is the perfect pop of color and character and will brighten any room of the house.

These items are available in store only. Please come into Mapel and look for the Petula tag!
