In another installment of our How do YOU A&G? series, we are pleased to feature a photo sent to us by a customer of our San Francisco store, Tessa.
Tessa is a writer and performer, and needed an all-purpose table to place in front of her window when she sits down to create. She decided to go with the Morefill, a distressed natural elm wood dining table that can serve many purposes. We think it looks fantastic overlooking her Bernal Heights garden, and we hope it helps complete a work space full of peace and creativity!
We’d love to see how the rest of you make A&G Merch work for you, so please send us hi-resolution photos at SF@aandgmerch.com, and we’ll put them up on the blog!
