BRIKA has landed in Bentonville!
We are redefining the small-town retail experience in Bentonville, Arkansas with a flagship-worthy store in a 2,000 square foot historic bank building just off the square.
The 115 W. Central Ave. building was built in 1906 as the Benton County National Bank building, and is now on the national register of historic places. Since then, the building has been used as office space, the library, and most recently City Hall. We are lucky to occupy a space that has been such an integral part of the community for over 100 years.
Ryan Lawson is the creative visionary who took a historic bank building and transformed it into the stunning flagship worthy retail environment we get to call home. Ryan is originally from Wynne, AR and now lives in New York City where he runs a multi-faceted interior design firm. He also believes that the unsweetened ice tea tastes better in Arkansas.
Brooklyn based artist, Matt Kleberg, created the "Walk Like an Egyptian" paintings specifically for BRIKA in Bentonville – meant to mimic the historic architecture, the artwork brings the space together. The piece will live in Arkansas permanently as a part of the OZ Art collection.
