Shopper’s Diary: Sunday Shop in New Orleans

January 23, 2018

Recently, on Saturday afternoon in New Orleans, I spotted a minimal white storefront with its door propped open amid the ornate black ironwork on Magazine Street, and wandered in to discover Sunday Shop, offering “thoughtful wares for an easy and beautiful home.”

The shop, I came to find out, is run by two childhood friends, Katie Logan LeBlanc and Jensen Killen, who graduated from Louisiana State University’s School of Design together, started an interior design firm—Logan Killen Interiors—in 2012, and opened Sunday Shop in late 2016. “Sometimes interior design showrooms can be intimidating to the everyday patron; we wanted to create a space that felt welcoming for everyone,” they say. Their solution? Designing the shop, housed in a long, tall, and narrow building, like a traditional Southern shotgun house: rooms laid out one behind the other, from the living space to the kitchen to the bedroom and garden, each arranged with wares for sale. Join us for a walk-through.

Keep an eye out: Katie and Jensen are also working with New Orleans makers on a custom collection of furniture and home accessories.

If you can’t make it to the brick-and-mortar shop, see the Sunday Shop website—Southern hospitality not included.
