Bethel Couple Opens Stylish New Store in New Milford

Jennifer & David Carbone stand in front of their new store, Designer Garage, in New Milford.

When husband and wife team Jennifer and David Carbone decided to open up a retail store the most important factor to consider was location. The big red antique barn sits perched atop a hill at 163 Newtown Road in New Milford, just north of Wal-Mart. The store opened on Sept. 22 and houses fashions and furnishings for men, women, juniors and the home. The spacious 110-year-old barn has exposed wood beams and 2 fireplaces.

Always interested in fashion, this was a natural career choice for the Bethel mother of 2  boys and her husband. The couple regularly shops at trade shows in New York City to collect a vast array of trendy and classic styles.

“The concept is all different designers all under one roof,” Jennifer said. Popular designers such as Nicole Lee, Not Your Daughter’s Jeans and Lucky Brand are just a few of the many brands they carry.  The Not Your Daughter’s Jeans are “very slimming” Jennifer said “and bring you down a whole size!”

Jennifer and her husband David especially like the new line of comfortable, yet fashionable clothing made from organic bamboo.  The clothing line includes shirts for men, cotton yoga tops and pants for women and women’s dresses.

“It’s so soft and really comfortable,” Jennifer said.

Home furnishings include wishbone-style wood dining chairs, bucket chairs and couches in artistic styles and shades. Jennifer takes the time to personally help each shopper that enters her store, not something one gets at a big-box store. Jewelry, hats, gloves, men’s belts, women’s handbags and messenger bags are also available at various price points.

Jennifer and her husband David encourage Bethel shoppers to take a trip “up North” and check out their new store, which is only about a 20-minute drive from Bethel.
