Back in the beginning of September the PR showroom moved locations from 8th avenue and 36th street to 6thavenue and 40th street. The move gave us so much more space, and the location was much more central. We upgraded to big windows, lots of sunlight and beautiful wood floors, but there were more plans in store for the Rebecca Taylor showroom. For months we heard talk about a remodel and started to get excited, then design teams and contractors came and began taking measurements. Beginning this past December the full remodel began!
At first we were looking forward to the make over, but then when it actually began we immediately hated it. The PR team was moved into the small kitchen area that is poorly lit and we had to create desks to work at for three weeks. The walls in our old office went up fast and we started to envision how the new layout was going to look and it gave us light at the end of the tunnel. Then when winter break rolled around we had to pack all of our stuff in boxes again to be stored for the two week break we had so they could remodel the kitchen. We expected everything to be done by the time we got back in January, but in typical construction fashion they were running behind.
The first few days back in January were rough, as we had no power for the first 3 hours of work, had to unpack all our belongings, and unwrap all of the clothes. Boxes got moved around in all the construction madness and a lot of boxes were lost or misplaces, but as we started to settle into our new desks the finishing touches were being done around the office. Rails were being hung, walls painted, and floors finished; the place started to come together. We now have a huge closet to hide older seasons, racks to show the most recent collection, and a beautiful sitting area that I envy and wish was in my living room. Needless to say we are all so thankful the construction is finally over with and are left with a new and improved show room. It was about 2 months of construction and moving three times, but in my opinion it was well worth it.
