Falling Into Place
Falling Into Place is a home and life style boutique in the Broad Avenue Arts District.
Challenge: design a space with flexible retail and an area for an existing candle making business.
The space was in a building from the early 20th century. The floor plan was open so a wall was built to create a back of house area for the candle operations, restroom and an office. The walls had a beautiful patina that was preserved, and bead board was added to the ceiling for a vintage feel. Two found antique doors were installed to the restroom corridor and office. They came from an Architectural Salvage shop in downtown Memphis along with the original lead crystal door knobs. To balance the antique vibe of the architecture, modern geometric elements were designed into the space, such as the custom checkout counter and lighting and custom displays. The exterior was freshly painted and a rustic wood awning was applied to the façade, along with a custom hand-bent steel sign.
