Celebrated British purveyor of luxury furniture and home accessories Oka has opened its latest storefront in Westport, Connecticut. Situated along the storied suburban village’s main commercial street, the brand’s third U.S. location showcases its eclectic array of classic and modern wares.

“We are very excited to bring Oka to the East Coast, and especially to Westport,” cofounder and creative director Sue Jones says. “Its rich cultural history and artistic bent make it a perfect match for us.” Indeed, located just an hour from the New York metropolitan area, Westport strikes a balance between small-town charm and the hustle and bustle of the city.

The new outpost will cater to a discerning clientele seeking out well-crafted and sophisticated accents that can bring a sense of English charm into their homes—many of which were constructed in an architectural style that references back to the European country.
