The Lucca Ilena shoe store looks extremely chic and elegant. The minimalist art gallery style design of the shop forces the customers to look at the featured shoes like works of art rather than pricey footwear pieces. This is an interesting way for a store to present its products with confidence. Stats for Gallery-Inspired Shoe Shops Trending: Older & Chilly
