Porter & Prince, a shop in Asheville’s historic Biltmore Village, recently was chosen by Architectural Digest as North Carolina’s “Most Beautiful Independent Store.”

The shop was founded in 1996.

The magazine praised Porter & Prince as “Asheville’s premier destination for French antiques, luxury linens, dreamy sleepwear, fine gifts and unique home decor.”

In response, store owner Debra Prince Slosman said in early November, “This honor not only reflects our love of what we do but also represents our dedication to the mission of bringing any tiny bit of beauty and comfort we can to those who enter our door,” according to the Asheville Citizen Times.

Architectural Digest published its list of the “The Most Beautiful Independent Store in Every State in America” in October.

The magazine cited Porter & Prince as “a tranquil shopping haven for home furnishings, with a strong focus on French and Scandinavian influences.”

The store previously had been chosen as a “Top 100 Store in the Country” by Cottage Living Magazine. It also was the subject of a feature in Domino Magazine and was selected by Huffington Post as a “Top Place to Shop in Asheville.”

Its Architectural Digest selection was based on the store’s “uniquely curated merchandise selection, their commitment to kind, patient service and striving to creatively inspire the love of home and beauty in those who Porter & Prince is passionate about serving,” the magazine noted.

In response to the honor, Porter & Prince officials said the shop is “deeply honored” and grateful to its customers for the “appreciation the community places on personalized service not typically found in big-box stores,” the ACT reported.
