American Street in Philadelphia Inquirer

From the Inquirer:

Over the last several months, architects, interior designers, and buyers for glamorous brands like Saks Fifth Avenue, W Hotels, and Restoration Hardware have all been making the same pilgrimage- to a decidedly unglamorous corner of Kensington.

Their destination, hidden incongruously within a Philadelphia Electric Co. substation that dates to 1921, is the American Street Showroom, a dreamy, steampunk fantasyland of high-end furnishings and refurbished flea-market finds that blurs the line between retail and exhibition space, gallery and retreat. It’s the showcase for three design-driven fabricators – Amuneal, Groundwork, and Robert True Ogden – all in the vanguard of Philadelphia’s nascent manufacturing revival.
