We were in Minneapolis/Saint Paul recently and had a chance to see some of our work installed in the beautifully renovated Minnesota State Capitol. Once fixtures leave our shop floor, we don’t often get to see the finished product installed in person. So when we have to the opportunity to visit a space with our work present, we jump on it!

Similar comparisons can be […]
