Soleil Brule

Before you commission another ho-hum gingham throw pillow, take a trip to Soleil Brule. Here, owner Jennifer Vervoort-Smith has amassed an exotic collection of artisan tableware, intricately designed furniture, and eye-popping accessories from her travels to Morocco. Having a veritable bazaar right here in Minnesota makes it easy to incorporate global elements into your gift-giving or home décor, but Vervoort-Smith’s interior-design services can also help.
