The Fig House has broken ground — literally — the ground is all jacked up … and I mean literally jacked up, as they are using jack hammers today. Meanwhile we are busy planning, designing, shopping, and generally adjusting to the fact that I have bangs. It’s like how wood flooring has to acclimate in your house for three weeks before you can install it; I, and a crew, have to stare at my face for three months before it’s not totally weird that these things are crowding my forehead.
But while that is happening, this is happening:
That’s Steve and I meeting with the talented dudes from Judson Studios — a 150-year-old, family-owned stained glass studio that is around the corner from our space. Stained glass can get a bad rap, but it’s normally just applied in ways we don’t often associate with “cool.” Still working on the design, but it’s going to be 1930′s meets 2013; Frank Lloyd Wright meets Andy Warhol, except with a splash of neon. Judson Studios meets Emily von Henderson and The Fig House. Stay tuned.
Meanwhile we are down to the studs, you studs.
It’s very exciting to see things transform. We are finalizing the mood boards (shoring up some partners :)) and will have the design plan for your viewing pleasure very shortly. With bangs.
If you missed the first post about The Fig House, check it out HERE. It’s my new favorite thing to talk about. Also, I have bangs.
All fun and arty photos by the lovely Tessa Neustadt.
