Over the past year, Civilized Living, produced by Fancy Tiger boutique, has established itself as one of the most stylish events of South Broadway’s First Friday art walk. Tonight the store will launch a new version, called Modern Tiger, in which Mod Livin’, an East Colfax furniture store, will display its wares inside Fancy Tiger for the month. In exchange, Fancy Tiger will establish a pop-up shop inside Mod Livin’.
“I like what they're doing. I love their style; I love modern design,” says Fancy Tiger owner Matthew Brown of Mod Livin’. “They're going to be putting four pieces of furniture in the store that will all be for sale -- and as they sell, we'll refresh them. And then, in their store, I'm going to do a small display of products from Wheelmen & Co., a California-based company doing these really amazing fashionable backpacks and tote bags, as well as the candles that I make in-house.
“We were curious what it would be like to have a presence on East Colfax in a different market,” Brown adds. “We really love the idea of dipping our toe in that market. It's a little more 'auteur' than South Broadway feels.”
The Modern Tiger launch runs from 7 to 10 p.m. at Fancy Tiger Clothing, 55 Broadway, with beers from Breckenridge Brewery and Pabst, and a DJ spinning tunes. For more information, visit fancytiger.com.
