OK, first off a disclaimer: Shelly and Lisa, the ladies who own, stock and run Pineapples, Palms, Etc. are friends of mine. That we became friends AFTER I started shopping there, I think, says a lot about their store, their goods, and the ladies (did I mention Mel, Deb, Cindy and Robin?) who make it a fun place to shop.
See although my buddies may snicker (and they do), I’m a guy who actually likes to shop and digs decorating. So when I first stumbled into PPE, I was hooked. Having had my fill of mahogany, burl, brocades and jabots, I was blown away by the items they offered, and I wanted one of everything. Tables, chairs, lamps, mirrors, decorative items of all sorts, PPE had it all. And for those who want it (or need it) they also offer the decorative expertise to make it all work. Color schemes, fabrics, wall coverings, furniture layouts…they know stuff.
Since I’m forbidden to do commercial endorsements, I can’t and won’t ever ask anyone to stop into Pineapples, Palms, Etc. All I can do is assure everyone that they’d enjoy the experience. I’m sure my friends would see to that.

When I first moved to Palm Beach Gardens from New Jersey, I couldn’t find a furniture and design store. I looked and looked and finally found Pineapples, Palms, Etc. in Jupiter. It was definitely one of the best finds. I was in the beginning stages of building a home in the Gardens and I needed everything. I met with Lisa and Shelly and I explained what my likes were and what I was looking for. Lisa and I set up an appointment and started the process. It was a wonderful experience. Lisa was open to my ideas (which many designers are not). We pulled our ideas together and I have one of the most beautiful homes I’ve every built. We had such a great working relationship that we’ve become good friends.
When you walk through the front door of Pineapples, Palms, Etc., you immediately feel welcome. The furniture is light, not heavy like many stores are here in Florida, and beautifully displayed. I wish I could buy everything in the store. I highly recommend Pineapples, Palms, Etc.

Pineapples, Palms, Etc. – Everything you need to furnish your new home. Creative Design and great people to work with. I would recommend Pineapples, Palms, Etc. to anyone buying, building or renovating a home.
Julie Kampf, CEO & Chief Possibilities Officer, JBK International
Finding Pineapples, Palms Etc. to furnish now two homes in Palm Beach County, was a place I could have only dreamed that I would find. The owners, Shelly and Lisa are amazing and their staff is so friendly and client-focused. All they care about is that you are happy and enjoying your home, and with the beautiful taste they have brought to the products they carry in their store, it’s hard to imagine that anyone would not find many treasures to create a home that is welcoming, enjoyable and that you are proud to have your friends enjoy as well. People have come to our home and raved about the beautiful furnishings that all came from Pineapples, as I like to refer to it. With a very demanding career as the CEO of an international company, much of the work together was done virtually and that is a testimony to their ability to provide incredible guidance and direction. I have tremendous respect for what they have built and I am a life-long customer and now friend. Every time I walk in the store, I am transported to a place of beauty and tranquility. If you haven’t been to Pineapples, I highly recommend that you go if you are building, remodeling or just want to refresh with some new ideas.

Dear Lisa, Shelly….and the "Girls"…. How fortunate do we feel - Our experience has been enjoyable from start to finish…and what a finish!! Not only do we have a beautifully decorated beach house; but beautiful friendships as well. Every step of the way we felt you were searching for the perfect piece. Simply being in your store fills you with inspiration…you just can't miss. Thanks you so much

When one thinks of coastal elegance, I did not have to look any further than the fabulous team of women at Pineapples, Palms, Etc. As a Southern California native living in a small West Texas town, I struggled to find exactly what I needed to create my "beach house" at the lake. From design plans, to outside furniture, accessories, textiles, curtains, and even paint colors for the walls, no stone was unturned. They were there every step and 1300 miles in between!

“After following the Pineapples Facebook page and loving each post more than the day before, I contacted Cindy to see if she might be able to help me with our beach house in Newport. We texted and emailed photos of every room in the house, measurements of every floor and wall and videos of each room and we exchanged fabric samples by mail. She has changed the entire feel of the house to a fresh modern beach house with the attention to every detail readily apparent. She takes great pride in ensuring each selection is just perfect – carefully evaluating each one to ensure it is just right. I was nervous about working with someone that hadn’t actually been in our beach house, but Cindy couldn’t have made better suggestions if she had been there!”
