Spruce's Lizzie Nguyen and Amanda Brown hit the ground running less than a year ago, bringing high style and recycling culture together to recover and restore vintage furniture of all eras, right in their on-site upholstery workshop on Lamar. The secret of their success lies in their unusual and gorgeous fabrics, high-quality restoration, and, most of all, an uncanny eye for the perfect yet unexpected mix of the two. The results are all utterly unique and often a little breathtaking; their friendly, down-to-earth demeanor and updated sensibilities create a welcoming sense of simpatico to boot. Visiting Spruce will probably prompt you to recover something, anything, just for the pure pleasure of the results, but the store also sells its fabulous fabrics by the yard, as well as an assortment of household items, and offers upholstery classes on an ongoing basis. Nguyen and Brown's creations have rocketed them on to the national radar almost immediately – they've already been featured on E!'s Ultimate Bachelorette Pad and in The New York Times – and while we wish them boundless success, we prefer to think of Spruce as a hometown treasure for as long as we can.
