Impact Tip - Moving In

There are a lot of changes going around here at the Vrai studio and one of them is that we have moved to Chicago! I am so excited to be here and enjoying the city. During the move, I had to go out and get some new furniture for the new space and I wanted to be true to my style and get great furniture that in essence is recycled...ie. antique, reused, refirbed!

Then I realized that is a great thing to share with all the new couples that may be looking into a new home and needing some new furniture. A great option is going to estate sales, antique shops, and design shops to find furniture that is already in the market and reduces the energy costs of building new pieces and the shipping costs associated. Also, you can be pretty sure it is one of a kind!

I found some great stuff in the neighborhood at GRID, (btw, working with Greg and Robin was so great so be sure to check them out down here in Pilsen). Also, on the way home from Jenni and Jared's wedding in Michigan, I stopped at a great antique place outside of Kalamazoo, that was a blast too!

Check it out! The new space and new stuff that really isn't new at all!
