Urban Cottage is a new shop that has opened up on Penn Avenue in Garfield just passed Children's Hospital adding welcomed new retail to a stretch that is largely residential. Urban Cottage seeks to bring pretty and interesting housewares that live somewhere between 'cozy comfort and modern styling,' at a piece point where you could pop in any day of the week and pick something up for yourself or a gift. After living out of town for several years, owner Linda Nawrocki, opened Urban Cottage, a shop that she thought would be a nice fit for Lawrenceville/Bloomfield/Garfield area with its widely available parking and pricing conducive to the area.
While Shadyside had Toadflax and Penhollows and the Strip has Hot Haute Hot, Lawrenceville, Garfield, and Bloomfield really did not have that shop and thus Urban Cottage was born.
'When I moved back to Pittsburgh, I longed for the unique and fun home decor places that I had seen in my travels over the years. The corner boutique in Dublin, Ireland, the fabulous show rooms of Atlanta, funky shops in New York or the great finds tucked away in small Chicago neighborhoods,' says Nawrocki.
