We've been working in a sunny chaos for the past couple of weeks, but working we have been. We've outgrown a couple of spaces recently, so we're on the move again. And we've got to get out of our current Sunset Blvd storefront studio so that we can start the build out of very first CV store in this location.
I think I have one of the best teams in the world: Jocelyn, Saehee, Tran, Elena and Thomas and recently Myra and a few other people here and there. They work so hard and are always 1. up for a cup of coffee and 2. a pleasure to be around.
Smack dab in the middle of moving our work place: big orders still have to ship to stores. So boxes are being packed to ship and boxes are being packed to move.
And all the while, they smile. I love them.
Here's what our studio looks like these days:
Each box, either meticulously labeled by Saehee as stock going out to stores,
or a little more poetically labeled by Thomas. I love this, a boy's vernacular for "dust bag".
In the middle of the chaos, Jocelyn brings little moments of peace like this sample of a nude leather dish with snapping corners we'll sell at the store. Who amongst us doesn't need a cute catchall for their bedroom flotsam?
Tomorrow we move here: our new pink abode. Kind of a funny place, but a stone's throw from our store, and twice the size we've been in - sounds perfect to me.
Today the magical Ikea elves constructed furniture for us. And there's an oven which we already know Saehee will use to bake us cookies on a regular basis. Or, okay, I'm just hoping that.
I got to work in there today and experienced the peacefulness of the uncluttered new space. Tomorrow, when the movers drop off all the boxes of bags, office supplies, computers, leathers, the work tables, and inspiration boards it will be a different story, or rather, a new chapter. And I'm so excited to see what it brings.
