Jackson, MS - Served as Contract Interior Designer. All design work by Wenbren J. Coleman. An example of a totally custom designed interior. The existing Optical was moved to a prominent space in the building in order to receive more public exposure. The client wanted a well designed, efficient space for their Optical that would draw in clientele to browse with the new highly designed space and new image. All aspects of the Optical are custom designed, from the drawers and tray cubbies in the Lab to all the rounded millwork, eye glass displays, mirrors, and the lighting for the space. Eye glass displays and glass shelves in front of windows are mounted on tension cables and mirrors are mounted with escutcheons and held off the wall 3” – all in order to appear to “float”. All finishes, furniture and fixtures are new.
