Urban Spelunking: La Lune Collection

This week’s Urban Spelunking takes us to the Riverwest neighborhood inside a collection of buildings simultaneously serving two unique — and quite different — purposes.

In one section, the furniture factory part, craftsmen are busy creating handmade wooden chairs, benches and other rustic pieces. Then on the other side, classically trained, professional opera singers can be heard at rehearsal.

Only in Riverwest.

Click the player below to visit the La Lune buildings near Weil & Burleigh, home to the Florentine Opera Company and La Lune Furniture.
