KEMPA HOME brings star power to Camana Bay
Luxury hospitality brand KEMPA has announced plans to launch KEMPA HOME — a flagship retail store featuring a range of home furnishings and housewares, design atelier and restaurant/bar and member experience.

Ashlee Simpson-Ross — the platinum-selling singer, actress and interior designer, serves at KEMPA HOME's Creative Director and style curator, joining the management team of Chief Executive Officer Katie Lambert and Principal Designer Justin Szigeti.

The store is set to open on the ground floor of the newly opened 60 Nexus Way.

KEMPA HOME delivers turnkey interior design services focused on creating refined residential and commercial spaces, according to a press release. Prior to joining KEMPA HOME, Lambert and Szigeti led Interior Design and Home Décor, at Cayman-based IDG.

“We’re beyond excited to lead KEMPA HOME's expansion into Cayman," said Lambert and Szigeti in a joint statement. "With the addition of a full-scope interior firm and our expanded product offerings, we’re able to reflect the individual needs and tastes of our clients and their spaces. We aim to create a client experience that escapes the ordinary, whether you’re buying a throw cushion or renovating your entire home or office."

KEMPA HOME will also work with Kempa Foundation, the independent non-profit of the Kempa brand, dedicating .25% of all sales donated quarterly to the foundation to use in the community.
