Furniture store Joglo House will take the place of the former restaurant and bar Telegraph Station, according to Jackson Prentice of Jackson Prentice Real Estate. Owners Gary Jones and his wife Betty signed the lease for the property last week. The furniture store will specialize in Indonesian furniture and artwork.
Solid natural wood furniture and art will be available at Joglo House at reasonable prices, said Gary. The influence for the furniture store offerings comes from the culture where Betty grew up, in Indonesia. The furniture will include bedroom furniture as well as tables and other pieces for the home.
Gary said Joglo House's prices will likely be about 25 to 30 percent cheaper than other local furniture stores.
Gary and Betty are Kingstowne residents and are currently spending time fixing up the property in preparation for their first furniture shipment from Indonesia, before opening in February.
Betty is an artist and was involved in the local art scene in Kingstowne, and has plans to sell some of her art pieces along with works by other Indonesian artists.
