FALL 2013

 

The progression of our studio space is a visual understanding of our dreams for gd and where we started. Our first shop was in a two-stall garage apartment garage of GD partner Blain Mikkonen.  No heat, no air, but here the dream was started.

WINTER 2013

 

From there we grew into our first “OFFICIAL” address as Grain Designs in West Fargo complete with a custom reclaimed basketball hoop, pull-up bar, and our first office.

SUMMER 2014

 

In 2014 we had the opportunity to expand our operations and rent a farm shop southwest of Fargo . This was the perfect rural location with room to grow, and hit golf balls around the yard.  I guess you could call this location Grain Designs world headquarters; internally we called it “The Pines” to differentiate the property from our other shop location. 

SUMMER 2018

 

We took on more expansion in 2018 with the addition of a Fargo retail store, Grain Designs Furniture + Mercantile. Our first permanent retail store allows customers to shop ready made furniture and our expanded line of wall decor and home goods. The retail store also has a design/build center to explore and design your custom project with our in house design staff. 3265 45th St. S Fargo, ND

FALL 2018

 

In addition to expanding the Grain Designs brand we made ‘The Pines’ our permanent home and purchased the entire property! With this purchase we added capacity for growth and started a new venture, The Pines Weddings & Events
