SHOPPABLE SPACES + GATHERING PLACES
ABOUT THE SURSY
The Sursy is an Experiential Design and Development Group that offers interior design and host consulting services, operates a growing collection of shoppable Airbnbs and an online shop, and is pursuing development of a unique hospitality concept.
Our ‘shoppable stays’ fuse retail, hospitality, and design, with a mission of supporting local and fostering community through experiences.
Each of our rentable, shoppable spaces allows guests to book a stay, then try before they buy. Everything from the furnishings to the art and décor to the literal paint on the walls is for sale, and is made by local artists, makers, and independent brands. Not staying as a guest? You can browse our curated selection of bespoke home goods online to experience the ‘retail meets hospitality’ experience from anywhere.
We pride ourselves on not only using our shoppable spaces to promote our network of local artists, makers, and small businesses, but also to support them through our services. All interior design projects prioritize sourcing local when it comes to everything from construction services to fabric selections and furniture sourcing.
DESIGN. RETAIL. HOSPITALITY.
We are eclectic maximalists who believe that creative expression doesn’t need to be confined to one bucket, so we do it all.
We are interior designers, stylists, and decorators. We are retail shop owners, vintage lovers, and thrifters.
We are hospitality developers, renovators, and innovators. We are brand strategists, marketing gurus, and storytellers.
