The perfect mix of Evelyn Waugh gone rock and roll and staying up late.
Garbiras's other career, on the screen, hopefully won't take her away from the LES, because it needs her. It really, really needs her.

FIG began on New York's Lower East side as a richly curated gallery with a blend of vintage European pieces that spanned several centuries (18th century to 1960's). Inside the studio was an eclectic mix of French gilt mirrors, English leather sofas, early-Italian oil paintings, Turkish rugs, Chinese art deco and refined American Industrial design. In addition to its historic pieces, FIG also carried contemporary photography along with lush textiles and one-of-a-kind antique jewelry. The modern-day atelier was an ever-shifting emporium that reflected a contemporary aesthetic with a soulful collection.

FIG now brings that aesthetic to its Design studio: a full service firm dedicated to expressing that same innovative vigor in everything from a gut renovation of a century old townhouse to a redesign of a modern loft space.
