About Us

SWANK is a meticulously curated lifestyle shop and design studio located in the heart of Hamilton, NY and is owned by husband and wife team, Alexis + Erika Perez.

Our History

We began by fixing and painting vintage furniture and accessories and selling them locally at the Madison-Bouckville Antique Show. We opened our first 400 square foot retail shop in April 2007 before expanding to a premier corner storefront location in 2010 and have expanded and grown each year since. We are now the proud owners of a 4,000 square foot brick + mortar shop and interior design studio which we continue to run together, along with our team of amazing professionals who make us look good!

Our Shop

We scour the map for home furnishings, rugs, curiosities, personal care items, jewelry and accessories to showcase in our shop. Handcrafted pillows, pottery, cutting boards and custom furniture are just some of our home décor offerings. We also feature lamps, throws, vases, vintage and modern artwork and an assortment of vintage finds we scoop up in our travels. A mix of industrial, transitional and modern farmhouse decks our shop and this mix is big hit with both our clients and customers.

A few things of note:

Our Candle Bar features all sorts of soy and wax candles, matches, snuffers and accessories to enhance your at-home experience and gift giving needs. Letterpress cards, notepads, journals, handmade paper prints and wall art also grace the shop.

NOSH Gourmet Food Emporium (inside SWANK) features small batch and from scratch specialty foods and tableware staples. Cool and creamy dips, savory and dessert cheese balls, tasty BBQ, tomato and finishing sauces, olive oils, infused balsamic vinegars, local honey and syrups, hot sauces, mustards, drink mixes (our Bloody Mary Mixes are to die for!), pickled goods, sweet and savory jams and jellies, and artisanal Himalayan salts and salt slabs are just some of our gourmet offerings. We also stock dish towels, bar ware, dishes, glasses, placemats, napkins, paper table runners, place cards, cookbooks and serving pieces to create and complete your dining and entertaining experience.

Our Soap Bar features all sorts of delightful soaps, lotions, perfumes and personal care items. Some of our most popular offerings in the personal care lineup are goat milk soaps, lotions, handwashes and cuticle creams from Beekman 1802 and perfumes and lotions from Tokyo Milk.

The shop changes often – with found objects being added every week, and we host a series of signature events throughout the year. Subscribe to our newsletter HERE  to stay up to date on our latest arrivals, events and exclusive offers.

Our Design Services

Whether your wish is to create an entirely new look or enhance an existing space, our goal is to collaborate with you to design a space especially for you and the way you live and to assist you in completely designing your dream space from start to finish. From cabinetry to countertops, furniture to flooring, fabrics to finishes, artwork, lighting, accessories, window treatments, paint, and everything in between – we’re here to help! We work closely with reputable architects, builders, trades, vendors and to-the-trade suppliers to ensure that the end product meets and exceeds your expectations. From one-room redesigns to remodels and new construction, we are experienced in a variety of residential project types.

Our Philosophy

Our brand philosophy is simple: to exercise our talents and abilities to curate a lifestyle shop and design experience that exceeds expectations and to do so with a smile and a positive attitude.

Our objective for the shop has always been to present a diverse array of home goods and décor in a variety of styles and price points. We’re in business because we love what we do. Our clients and customers make it a pleasure and we feel truly blessed to live and do business in a community we simply love and adore.

We’ve had the privilege of working with and for some of the most amazing clients and have made lifelong friends in the process. We also relish the creativity that our business affords us. We couldn’t be more grateful for the fact that no two days are ever the same – they fly by doing what we love!

What we enjoy most about our clients and customers is their diversity. We meet people from all walks of life, from all over the country and all over the world. Hearing about where they’re from, what they do, where they’ve traveled, how they live and what brings them to the area brings us a great deal of joy.
