Mac & Mabel opens in Redmond Town Center

The new store offers practical, vintage, and modern farmhouse home d├ęcor pieces and furniture in-store or online.

Redmond Town Center recently welcomed a new home decor and furniture store. Shoppers now have more options to find unique pieces for their home.

Mac & Mabel, located on the ground level, opened their doors on May 27. The new store offers practical modern-rustic furniture and home decor.

“Living in the area for more than 15 years has made Redmond, Sammamish, and Issaquah our hometowns,” owner Keri Crossely said. “We feel honored to now be contributing to this community that helps to raise our family.”

For Crossely and her husband Peter Crossely, opening a store was something they dreamt of doing together from the time they met. Keri said Mac & Mabel is their passion project.

“Building something from the ground up, pouring our energy to create something for our children to see that through hard work and grit, we can do the extraordinary,” the Sammamish resident said. “We always felt Redmond was the right location for our business and when space at the Redmond Town Center became available we just knew we needed to jump on it.”

Mac & Mabel represents the dance between masculine and feminine design that makes up a home, according to Keri. Mac represents the masculine side of design and Mabel, the feminine side. The store focuses on modern rustic or modern farmhouse style, home decor and furniture pieces. Customers can find metal and wood pieces throughout the store, and they can also find chunky hand-knit blankets that are handmade by Keri.

For the couple, they said they have always been drawn to the modern rustic style. Pete grew up in an area in Pennsylvania where there was a variety of “beautifully old stone houses that lends itself to a farmhouse style.” And Keri grew up in Utah during a time when cattle and pig farms were the norm.

“You could say it’s in our blood,” Keri said.

For the couple, being parents of children who have different sensory needs, they have come to know that what surrounds them affects the mind, heart and body.

“Our environment can energize, upset, or soothe us. Home is supposed to be a sanctuary, and that means something a bit different to every person,” Keri said. “It is the first thing a person sees when they wake, and the last thing a person sees before they sleep. Our brand and style represent what we believe is a balm to our overworked minds and bodies.”

Keri added how their market research overwhelmingly declared that consumers want their brand, and more like it, on the Eastside. Local shops are making a comeback and shop owners feel the need to contribute to their communities and families.

“People enjoy the interaction with shop owners and their offered products,” she said. “Although we have just recently opened, we have already started to create relationships with folks who frequent the Redmond Town Center and that brings us a lot of joy.”

Local shops like Mac & Mabel are important for consumers of home decor especially, because seeing and feeling a product can help a consumer in deciding if it’s the right for their home. Keri said they strive to bring quality and affordability to our audience.
