Design Additions is locally owned and has been in operation since 2000. We are an Emporium of Furniture, Gifts, Home Décor, Accessories, Jewelry, Architectural Elements, Scents, Antiques, Collectibles & One of a Kind Finds! Our Mission is to provide an exceptional, fun, and inviting shopping experience through product offering, presentation, and service to our first time and returning guest. ​ In the same location along St. Johns Avenue since 2003, Design Additions has evolved as much as the creative duo behind the stores success. Chris & Keith moved to Jacksonville in 1994 finding the Riverside, Avondale neighborhood a great place to call home. In 2000 After restoring a historic bungalow, they found their new hobby. Encouraged by family and friends, they used their creative talents and spare time to make a little extra money painting vintage furniture and creating cool home accessories.  20 years later, these elementary school teachers and small business owners have a full plate but love every minute of it! The birth of their two children, Addison & Aiden, most significantly added to their lives and the juggling act of time. The young family of four, in 2013 moved from their second home in Avondale to Ortega for the space a growing family needs.  Design Additions of course has flourished as well to a swanky boutique for locals and visitors alike to find an almost endless supply of “wants!” The painted furniture, still hand finished by the boys, is combined with wonderful “buying trip finds” from French milled soaps to unique jewelry and gift lines.
