The Scene: Ampersand Design Studio’s launch party at No Vacancy

Ampersand Design Studio has been around for more than a decade, and licenses artwork to brands like Crate&Kids.

The studio led by Carrie Kiefer and Morgan Georgie is now launching a new line of wall art, featuring fifty-plus designs suitable for framing.

To celebrate, last night Ampersand teamed up with No Vacancy for a night filled with art and Instagrammable scenery. The event was invite-only and guests were able to tour the carefully designed spaces of No Vacancy—a former office space in the Crossroads that has been transformed into a miniature boutique hotel, with eight unique rooms and a courtyard for hosting events—to admire the design of Ampersand’s new line.

At No Vacancy, no two rooms are alike, and each room is designed to feel like its own little apartment and is filled with unique décor and handmade furnishings. For the event, all eight rooms plus the common spaces were open to exploration by an artsy crowd.

Here are photos from the stylish event.
