About the Store
More than a furniture store, Elements East offers a meeting place for East and West, old and new, in modern interior design.
Our world-travel gives us opportunities to hand-select each piece in our collection of furniture and accessories. This allows us to learn the history and tradition that accompanies it. It also allows us to offer accessible price points and a broad range of price points.
We honor the culture of the makers, respect their craftsmanship, and relish the unique stories of our imports. Our hands-on role in this process allows us to give you a unique experience; it’s more than shopping, it’s sharing the spirit, tradition, and journey of our wares.
We’re not just a furniture store, but a space that evokes peace, inspiration, and a sense of wellbeing.
Elements East has a talented, professional and passionate team ready to assist you.
History major, long time retail executive, and soul searcher— I came to Elements East first as a customer. I was compelled to purchase the company in 2017 as I love the combination of travel, creating beautiful spaces and soul searching.
I feel so lucky to have a wonderful legacy and experience to lean on, and can now make it my own. I am excited to show you my finds from my recent Morocco trip, and any future adventures yet to be had.

I have spent over a decade at Elements East, in which time I have become well-versed in Chinese art, history, culture, furniture and feng shui.
I have background as a pastry chef (husband a chef, too), and have instilled a love of different cultures, tastes and experiences. I love the idea that we can learn much about people based on the objects they make and find beautiful.
I love the authenticity and the passion behind Elements East. I love our products as well as sharing my knowledge about them with our customers.
Julie Zvi Designs was established as a full consulting service with an emphasis on color, furniture and accessory purchase and placement as well as a focus on redesigning spaces to reflect the client’s needs and character.
Through the use of principal design elements such as balance, color and scale, and with a keen eye and ability to listen to my clients’ needs, I am passionate about transforming rooms into beautiful and functional spaces. My philosophy is to encourage my clients to express their likes and dislikes through asking questions, thus discovering a style that truly depicts one’s personality.
I am excited to work with Elements East, a store which has always influenced my innate sense of style. By encouraging my clients to make thoughtful and bold choices using unique items from exotic places, I am able to help them create rooms which will continually prove to inspire them.
The roots of Elements East are in China. We search out treasures wherever they may be. No showrooms for us! Sourced with intention is our mantra as we travel so we can bring you more depth and offer you a story to tell. Simply, they have stories and we want you to incorporate them into yours.
We share our journey with you and hope that our intentions make their way into your homes.
As we grow, so do our adventures. Our latest treasures are from Morocco. Stay tuned for our next adventure.
