Core iD

Core iD is a modern lifestyle store with the singular purpose of making modern furniture, lighting, decor and gifts available locally. Little Rock is still very dedicated to traditional or transitional, but more and more people are realizing the value and livability that comes with contemporary living. I work with clients to help them integrate modern aesthetics into their homes and lives. We source from around the world and ensure we have lines that work with all styles and across all price points.
