A downtown Walla Walla space has been transformed into a studio showroom and gallery for the work of local architects, designers and craftsman.
A grand opening of t.h.e. Interior takes place tonight from 6-8 at 15 S. Spokane St., according to a post from the Downtown Walla Walla Foundation. Located next door to Lotus Clothing & Jewelry Design, the shop has been the location of a number of businesses in the past several years, including a tasting room.
During this evening’s event, full-size kitchen and island displays will be showcased for viewing. The operation’s associates will also be on hand, and light refreshments will be served, according to the operation’s website.
The business is an umbrella of sorts for Systematic Wood Designs, Fascinate Stone & Tile and architect Josh Van Donge.
Systematic Wood Designs is a 6-year-old Walla Walla business owned by Phillip Thompson. It specializes in furniture and cabinetry, including custom residential and commercial cabinetry, custom and stock millwork, custom furnishings, wood, laminate, and corian countertops, and finish packages.
Fascinate Stone & Tile, which has a warehouse on College Place’s Whitman Drive, was founded by Dimitry and Vitaliy Romadin. The two honed their skills with a Seattle-area stone mason. When he retired, they took over the business, combining the values of their heritage with modern techniques and materials to create the current business that includes stone fabrication, stone and tile installation and other services.
Josh Van Donge, Architect offers consulting and design for winery, residential, and environmentally-integrated buildings.
The Spokane Street office is open weekdays, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and by appointment in the evenings and on weekends. For more details call 525-1588 or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
