Pronounced after the green stone, Jeid Studio at 2921 Ingersoll Ave. is a gem specializing in good design and transitional furniture from quality brands. Owner Jessi Economos (the name is after her initials) provides full-service interior design as well as access to some of the top made-in-America furniture brands such as Hickory Chair and Lee Industries.

What we love: American ash wood tables from Aronson Woodworks, a local company that’s making it big in the design world. Their pieces, such as the tray shown below, feature a special treatment, called Claize, to amplify the wood grain. Economos can show you samples in black and white, pink and more.

What to buy: If you want to carry something out the store, shop the smaller accessories including lamps, pillows, rugs and decor. Furniture needs to be ordered and typically has a six-month lead time; some vendors offer quick-ship as well.

When to shop: Monday to Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; closed daily noon to 1 p.m.
