Clean modern designs from across the country and around the world.
Kaarin “Pook” (a nickname given to her at birth by her father) Lemstrom-Sheedy opened p o o k s t y l e in the fall of 2010. Described as “a museum store without a museum” (Rural Intelligence.com), her shop distills all the strands of a career spent in museum retailing, and reflects her own personal style – clean, modern design from around the world, with a pinch of humor and a dash of whimsy thrown in for good measure.
Kaarin helped create: The Store Next Door
at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City; Hardware
, the shop at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA)in North Adams, MA; and The Shop at The Mount
, Edith Wharton’s Gilded Age Estate in Lenox, MA. In 2010, she supervised the remodeling/rebranding of the Shop at Hancock Shaker Village
in Pittsfield, MA.
In addition to her pookstyle chapeau, Kaarin wears a second hat -- Museum Store Consultant. Clients include The Mount, Lenox, MA, and MASS MoCA, North Adams, MA.
