Welcome to the beginning of a new series of blogs!

Here you can follow us on our journey from demolition, to the finishing touches of our new 8600 sq. ft. textile showroom.

Slated to open this summer-our new space has a bank of tall windows that fill the expanse with amazing natural light. In addition, be on the lookout for changes to our existing spaces.

We’ll be introducing new and exciting products alongside our already wonderful line up of creative furniture, lighting, rug and textile designers.


 Below you can see the progress, and mess, that has been made.

We will be cutting through these brick walls to connect the former two Stark Carpet locations.

Thanks for stopping by our blog!

I’m writing to tell you about a project I’m working on that is near and dear to my heart. I am one of the founders of the new Palm Springs Art Museum: Architecture and Design Center. We have hired Marmol Radziner to refurbish and redesign an amazing 1961 E. Stewart Williams building in downtown Palm Springs. When you have a moment please take a look here, to find more in-depth information.
