About Entrez! Open House:
Founded in 2006, Entrez! Open House was created by Marie Deleris, a French native and an attorney by trade; she started her first business venture in 2006 in Oakland, California. Coming from a family with a deep love of interior design she decided to start her own business. She saw a need and filled it, creating a boutique specializing in contemporary house wares, gifts and furniture, bringing the European designs she grew up with here to us in America. The concept behind Entrez: a design boutique for the home with a very specific and unique style in which customers feel as they are at home in her store. “Where style meets hospitality.” Over the past four years, Entrez! Open House has grown to two stores, with the second opening in Walnut Creek, California, in October of 2009. Marie gives back to the community consistently, and has been a large part of the growth in the Uptown movement in Oakland, California.
