Plucking a cutting-edge tastemaker from the other coast, Seattle-based Nordstrom Inc. said Monday that it had hired Jeffrey Kalinsky -- a pioneer of the boutique-as-art-gallery aesthetic -- as director of designer merchandising.

Bruce Nordstrom admits he felt a little intimidated when he first visited South Coast Plaza four decades ago, even though retailing is in his bones. The Orange County shopping center was "arguably the best mall in America," he said, and the company his grandfather co-founded in 1901 had never branched out from its home turf in the Pacific Northwest. "I was just trying to learn something," said Nordstrom, now 71 and chairman of the Seattle retailer that bears his family's name.
