2022 Retail Star Recipient

2022 Retail Star Recipient
Republic of Decor honored for excellence by Home Accents Today

May 2022, Greensboro, N.C. — Home furnishings and design source Republic of Decor, in Naples, Florida has been named one of Home Accents Today’s top 50 Independent Retail Stars for 2022 in the United States by editors of the premier trade magazine for the home accents industry.

The Retail Stars list, sponsored by AmericasMart Atlanta and Las Vegas Market, publishes each year in Home Accents Today’s May issue. Members of the home furnishings industry are invited to suggest stores, and retailers are encouraged to submit information describing their businesses. This year’s list was compiled and narrowed down by Research Director Joanne Friedrick and the editors of Home Accents Today.

Republic of Decor, owned by David Fruscione, is at 950 1st Ave N. Naples, FL in the Naples Design District and is the only store in Florida to be selected.

The Retail Stars list, now in its 18th year, recognizes independent brick-and-mortar retailers of home accents — including furniture stores, home accessories boutique stores and interior design showrooms — that merchandise creatively, have a positive presence in their local communities and stand out from the competition.

"Home Accents Today's 2022 Retail Stars list showcases some of the best independent home décor and home furnishings retailers in the country," said Home Accents Today Editor-in-Chief Allison Zisko. "No sooner had the industry adjusted to trade show cancellations, lockdowns and mask mandates than it had to deal with extreme supply chain delays and soaring prices. Although this has not yet dampened consumers’ desire for home products, it has made the day-to-day challenges of running a retail business even harder. Our Retail Stars have demonstrated, with enthusiasm and commitment —plus a little grit and determination — that they are up to the task.”
