The former Intermix storefront at The Street Chestnut Hill has emerged as an even more upscale, albeit slightly less trendy, boutique. Copious Row boasts an inventory akin to that of Barneys New York in Copley Place — cutting-edge but not over-the-top — showcasing pricey, fashion forward labels including Prabal Gurung, Narciso Rodriguez, and Mary Katrantzou. The 2,400-square-foot space is sleek, with touches of grandeur, including pink onyx and green empress marble tabletops and a curvy champagne-colored velvet sofa. And, of course, clothing, shoes, and jewelry. Copious Row, The Street Chestnut Hill, Chestnut Hill, 617- 608-3530, copiousrow.com
It only makes sense that shopping for new luxury pieces for your closet should be, well, luxurious. Get ready to feel like a pampered princess browsing the racks at Copious Row, the new 2,400 square-foot boutique now open at The Street in Chestnut Hill. Designed by Zachary Dillingham Zimmerman, the interior features slabs of pink onyx and emerald green empress marble with handmade custom Apparatus Studio fixtures, Gabriel Scott pendants, and exclusive Fornasetti wallpaper that is not yet available in the states.

There’s a lot to take in. Although this is the brand’s third location, it’s the largest and the first to carry footwear. CEO and Creative Director, David Chines, opened the first store four years ago in Sag Harbor and has since opened locations in Southampton, New York and Greenwich, Connecticut. No stranger to the retail game, Chines worked in marketing, public relations and digital strategy for luxury conglomerate LVMH before deciding to launch Copious Row. Taking his knowledge and connections with him, he’s able to offer exclusively distributed labels, from recognized designers to emerging brands, some of whom were not available in Boston until now.
Chines hand-selects the highly curated collection of apparel, accessories and fine fashion jewelry saying, “we want to bring clothing to people that they can see themselves living their lives in, it’s not just simply following a fad or trend. There are many designers that might be trendy but at the end of the day we don’t feel like is a good fit for our customer.”
So if you’re in need of some retail therapy but don’t actually need anything new, come have a look around. Guaranteed you leave feeling just a little more fabulous.
Copious Row is located at The Street, 33 Boylston Street in Chestnut Hill and is open on Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.and on Sunday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.

We are pleased to announce our principal, Lynne Kortenhaus, will be showcasing her work at The School House Gallery in Provincetown, MA on July 20 - August 8, with a celebratory reception on July 20th from 6-9 pm. Click here for more info!
LYNNE KORTENHAUS was raised on a 26-acre New Jersey farm among makers—her grandfather cultivated the land and her grandmother and mother brought the fruits of his labor to the table daily. Early on, Lynne was influenced by this homesteading heritage. She used her grandmother’s Singer sewing machine to craft her own dresses from Vogue patterns, and learned the art of crochet. She took this joy of making to the Rhode Island School of Design where she earned a BFA in 1973 and an MFA in 1975. Lynne spent her final year studying drawing and printmaking in Florence, Italy. The technical, process-driven demands of printmaking satisfy her obsessive nature; she has been dedicated to refining her craft ever since. Lynne has always lived close to the sea—she has residences in Charlestown and Provincetown, MA, and Clearwater, FL—and her art is deeply influenced by the changing moods of the shoreline in every season. Wherever she travels, she photographs natural moments and uses these images to inspire her work. She is particularly drawn to the reflection of light on land and ocean, and the Atlantic coast’s ever-changing tides and dunes. Lynne is a passionate supporter of the fine arts community. She is a member of the Provincetown Art Association and Museum; a Director’s Circle member of the Institute of Contemporary Art; and a trustee of the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown. She is currently the chair of the Public Art Commission for the City of Boston. She is a contributing artist to the annual FAWC Monoprint Project, originally established by Michael Mazur and currently directed and curated by artist Bert Yarborough, and is a member of the Boston Printmakers.
