All of our vintage furniture within the vignettes have been curated by Miller Island. Each piece within the space has been mindfully selected and carefully placed with the best lighting and backdrop in mind.
We hope that our space feels like a destination. Our minimal, 80’s Florida sunroom style with a hint of art deco will feel like a mini escape. You can use the curtain room dividers to create movable textures and stunning backdrops. Our 14ft ceilings with staircase offer many settings for creatives. Each corner of the studio has a storied design that is versatile.
