A Minneapolis Cornerstone For Extraordinary and Glamorous Events


The Machine Shop is a historic, unique and bright venue in the heart of the vibrant St. Anthony neighborhood of Minneapolis. The building has been carefully restored, keeping the original 1916 architectural details intact, while introducing modern luxury in this industrial space. The building will again be a cornerstone for the city of Minneapolis, as a host of extraordinary and glamorous events.

For this historical renovation, team FIXT helped combine vintage industrial decor with modern design elements. Take a look at our industrial wall sconces combined with modern black and white herringbone tile, which were used in the restrooms.  We also incorporated our industrial caged pendants into the entrance vestibules and staircases.   The main lounge features large custom fabricated industrial chandeliers, using our Kenwood Coin pendants.  Each vintage industrial light fixture tells a unique story, and these stories deserve a sequel.

Alfred Coffee Kicks it Old School in Studio City


"Now with their newest location on Ventura Place in Studio City, they've kept things interesting by going much more minimalist.  Step inside the subdued room to find more muted tones in teal and green, along with lots of dark woods and lightly printed wallpaper. In short, this is one gorgeously unexpected new place for coffee in the Valley."

-Farley Elliot, Los Angeles Reader

Vintage lighting is particularly sought after due to its exceptional quality and unique nature. Each piece shows the distinct process and undertakings by the original craftsman or craftswoman, including glass blowers, painters, metal spinners, and more. Antique lighting from industrial buildings imbues a particularly unique ambience in homes, businesses, restaurants, coffee shops, breweries, distilleries, offices, retail boutiques, kitchens, patios, living rooms, and more, due to the contrast of modern life with tales from the past. Edison style light bulbs are popular when it comes to reclaimed and salvaged lighting, but it depends on the mood of the atmosphere.  Antique lighting generally refers to those manufactured starting in the early 1900's. These historic light fixtures show some of the earliest use of modern features, such as porcelain lamp shades, metal shades, caged lighting, gas station lights, farmhouse lighting and explosion proof glass. By restoring and providing UL certification, our industrial vintage lights can be used safely in any location.
