Playing House


The first-ever Newport Cottages store, a high-end children’s furnishings and décor company, just opened at Fashion Island. It’s already a favorite with celebrities like Halle Barry, Nicole Richie, Minnie Driver and Tori Spelling who outfit their kid’s rooms in handcrafted furniture and artisan pieces.  Choose from beds, bunk beds, dressers, side tables and nursery pieces. Shoppers will also find a variety of chandeliers and lighting, artwork, custom bedding, and an international selection of unique gifts. The store can also provide nursery design services and custom furniture.

The SoCal-based company is owned by Pockets Alvarez, a father of three young boys who makes furniture that is functional, safe and a quality that can withstand everyday use. Crafted from select domestic hardwoods and implementing traditional woodworking techniques, a hand-rubbed finish is carefully applied to each piece before it’s inspected by quality control team members.

At Atrium Court at Fashion Island in Newport Beach. 949.644.4122.
