Republic of Decor Pop Up at Waterside Shops

Republic of Decor Pop Up at Waterside Shops
(Naples, Florida) January 9, 2023 – Republic of Decor, a local award-winning store and design studio owned by interior designer David Fruscione, opened a temporary “Pop Up Shop” at Waterside Shops on January 2, 2023.  The store, located at the Naples Design District, suffered severe flood damage from Hurricane Ian in late September and has been closed since then. The “Pop Up Shop” offers the same home furnishings, unique decor, great gifts, wallpaper and design services that were available at the original store.   

“The past few months have been challenging but we are so excited to announce Republic of Decor has opened its doors again at Waterside Shops as a Pop-Up Shop through the end of April,” said David Fruscione, an award-winning interior designer and owner of Republic of Decor. “Waterside Shops is Naples’ premier shopping and dining destination where the finest names in luxury retail and fashionable lifestyle stores reside. We are so honored to be able to operate alongside such distinguished brands.”

With a background in interior design and passion for unique, luxurious decor at a great value, David travels the country searching for beautiful curated items for his customers. The Pop-Up Shop has decorative accessories, tabletop items, accent furniture, pillows, candles, lamps, artwork, wallpaper and packaged gourmet treats. In addition, David will continue to provide interior decorating services for discerning, quality-conscious clients who seek assistance in design choices for their primary residences and vacation homes.

Ten percent of the sales at the Pop-Up Shop will be donated to the Collier Community Foundation’s Collier Comes Together Hurricane Fund. Although Republic of Decor was severely impacted by the hurricane, David still wanted to support and give back to others that were affected.
