gorgeous....warm and not intimidating! i felt welcome and free to browse around in this design store/art gallery/community space. while they have their design pieces, they also are supporting local artists and focusing on smaller, affordable pieces of art, jewelry, and pieces! they hosted a day of the dead event with local artist, yum mexican hot chocolate, beer, warm and unpretentious people and art! how much better does it get? they are trying to also start having events or feature affordably priced pieces (like art, prints, jewelry) alongside their design masterpieces. Love the vibe, love supporting someone born and raised in Oakland, and local Oakland business!
