FPE consulted with the owner of this fine antiques showroom for several months to determine the best site for his new store. The location chosen was a ground floor loft space in the East Village. To customize the space, FPE designed mahogany millwork that showcases the company’s large inventory of antique china and flatware. The existing cast-iron columns were painted with a faux-marble finish to complement the carpet and walls. Several discreet seating areas were designed to create an intimate setting for reviewing individual pieces of interest.
