Kellogg BaltimoreIt’s been 30 years since our founder, Pam Kellogg Green, signed the lease on the Baltimore location of The Kellogg Collection. It was the second store the Baltimore native opened following the success of her original Washington, D.C. store.

“Opening a Baltimore store made sense for a lot of reasons,” said Green. “It’s easy to get to from D.C., and it was a great excuse to come back more often to see family.”

Green grew up in Ruxton and attended Roland Park Country School. Though the store attracts customers she grew up with, news of its one-of-a-kind pieces of English furniture, designer upholstery, chandeliers and Dhurrie rugs has spread beyond her hometown. Today, the Baltimore store attracts buyers from Annapolis, Chevy Chase, Philadelphia, Southern Pennsylvania and Hollywood – about once a year, award winning set designer Tiffany Zappulla shops the store for T.V. shows like House of Cards and Veep.

Today, The Kellogg Collection has stores in Richmond and McLean, Virginia, and a warehouse in Gaithersburg in addition to its stores in D.C. and Baltimore. Green believes what really sets Baltimore customers apart from the others is their sense of tradition. “A lot of the people who live in Baltimore grow up here. It’s not as transient as D.C.,” said Green, “so we often see people buying pieces to go with their heirlooms.”

“While The Kellogg Collection still sees customers who started shopping with us when we opened 30 years ago, I find we are now helping the children of those same customers, and their children,” said Diane Litz, the store’s resident interior designer for 18 years. “It’s a pretty place to work and I love the women I work with.”

Those who have seen the store blossom since it first opened nearly 30 years ago know that it hasn’t always been located at 6421 Falls Road. Its first location was about two miles up the road at Green Spring Station. A few years later, The Kellogg Collection called Owings Mills Mall home, along with anchor store Saks Fifth Avenue, before finally settling in to its location today. Now, the Baltimore location counts Urban Threads (across the street), Leesha Lee and Cox Kitchen & Bath among its neighbors.

The Kellogg Collection looks forward to many more years of serving the Baltimore community.

“I try to create beautifully balanced rooms for our customers merging the lovely furnishings from our shops with their own pieces. My goal is to bring out the integrity of each item in the room. Negative space is just as important as space that is filled and allows the rooms to be beautiful and functional at the same time.”
