With all the new housing options in and on the way to downtown
, it’s only appropriate that residents will soon be able to outfit their homes with custom-designed furniture and art from a business right in their neighborhood. La Fille is the new gallery and design studio of artist Tiffany Klein
opening in the former Mills Supply Building at 336 E. Michigan Ave.
The gallery will feature Klein’s own artwork, wall finishes, designer fabrics and American-made Vanguard Furniture.
“She had been in Old Town for the last three years in the old furniture warehouse, but she outgrew the space,” says Jill Rademacher of Klein Cabinets who is working with Klein on the new gallery. “She started doing bigger pieces of art, and needed more space. That’s when she had the bug to start the furniture line. She started doing finishes on the furniture itself.”
Klein’s carved concrete artwork has been featured in Grand Rapids’ ArtPrize.
La Fille will open to the public on June 22 after a June 21 ribbon cutting. The high-end art and furnishings will be paired with an “urban line” of furniture that is more affordable. Klein will also lease space in the building to two other artists. In addition to Klein and Rademacher, La Fille will eventually employ a gallery manager.
