Flea Style Office Tour
Our office is a lot like our flea market: funky, eclectic, colorful and a curated mishmash of handmade, vintage and one-of-a-kind finds.
We call a cozy 700-square foot second story studio in the heart of Dallas home. (We tried the corporate office route for a year and some change, but found it a bit too buttoned up for our biz.)
Here’s a peek at some nooks and crannies of our headquarters.
I uncovered this fabulous vintage pink kilim rug years ago at an East Texas antique store. I never found the right spot for it in my home so I turned it into a funky stair runner, which is the first thing you see when you enter our office.
From fedoras and scarves to our new canvas Flea Style bags, this wood coat rack gets used A LOT. We like to accessorize at Flea Style!
Meet our conference table (it’s from West Elm, in case you’re curious). Every Monday the entire staff meets here to go over to-do’s, our editorial calendar, new web updates, show planning, vendor news, etc. We’ve also been known to discuss important topics like Pandora playlists, The Bachelor and recipes.
That’s my office chair accompanied by a vintage Turkish pillow and Vogue prints I found at the Paris flea. We have several pieces from flea markets around the globe as well as from our beloved vendors.
Longtime vendor Uptown Country Home gifted us this fun wood wall hanging that I love to read each morning while making coffee (the office is currently crushing on Archer Farms Buttery Caramel). Our rattan entry bench is also a score from her store.
Another vendor, 8FD Designs, gave us the monogrammed cutting board with our former logo. Several oil paintings are from Alex & Afton and we have a couple rugs from Nomad’s Loom (both vendors, too).
For me, the crazier the art the better. I adore this old screen print of hand pressure points scored from Dallas’ City View Antiques. I nabbed the kitchen’s vibrant vintage kilim runner from sister shop Lots of Furniture.
Our office studio is nearly 100 years old. Translation: Loads of charm including vintage doors, old school hardware and shiplap walls. I love this little office essentials corner that holds our printer, paper and all the ugly but necessary stuff in that affordable Ikea chest. (The vintage mirror is from a Gypsy Wagon flea market and the chair hails from Craigslist,)
We updated the ho-hum pin board with a vintage cloth scored in a Marrakech souk and littered it with fun articles and awards since launching in 2009.
Below, some more shots from around our HQ (including notes from vendors, our candy obsession — hello, York peppermint patties! — and some messy shelfies).
Hope you enjoyed our little office tour!
