Here in Richmond, as well as across the country, we’re noticing more and more developers reclaiming buildings that once sat idle, restoring them to former glory, and discovering new and interesting ways to use them beyond their intended purpose.
When we were in Nashville earlier this year, many of the places that we visited – Peter Nappi & Marathon Motor Works – were located inside reclaimed buildings. For us at Ledbury, our office and showroom is located inside a renovated tobacco warehouse in downtown Richmond.
The lookbook for our first September Short Run was photographed at Fulton Hill Studios. Originally built in 1916 as the Robert Fulton School, the 45,000 square foot building is located just a few minutes east of downtown. Restoration was completed in 1999, and as you can see in the lookbook, we took full advantage of the building’s large mullioned windows and beautiful heart pine floors.
The 32 original classrooms inside the former school have been transformed into an eclectic mix of artist studios and creative business offices. In addition to Fulton Hill Studios, Fulton Hill Properties is passionate about adaptive reuse and has redeveloped a handful of buildings in Richmond, both commercial and residential.

The current Short Run collection will be available until midnight tonight. View the lookbook and shop this collection of Short Run before it ends.
