Boutique gives new life to interior design | New
Tanya Manus Journal Staff
Rapid City’s new boutique is on a mission to transform furniture, homes and people’s lives.
RISE Furnishing and Décor is a business and department of Love INC. Located on the premises of Love INC at 414 E. Omaha St., RISE Furnishing and Decor renovates lightly used furniture into distinctive high-end pieces.
RISE Furnishing and Décor will be celebrating its grand opening Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Love INC’s Thrive Adventure retail store will also have its grand opening on Saturday.
“RISE represents the idea of progressing. We’re looking at things that may have been forgotten or that are disposable, and we want to see that as something that has new life, new hope. It can be furniture and people. It can be the way we look at things and do things. It’s becoming something new and better, ”said Caine Shagla, director of the Clearinghouse Ministries for Love INC.
The Clearinghouse responds to over 1,000 inquiries per year from people who turn to Love INC for a variety of assistance, including bedding, furniture and household items.
“We have been doing a furniture ministry for many years. The gifts that our community gives us, we collect them and put them back in the homes of families. We make them earn this furniture (by volunteering), ”Shagla said.
“Often the furniture is in poor condition. Now he goes through the RISE workshop and takes on a new life, ”he said.
