Future Ancestor offers a fresh and welcoming take on vintage home decor.
Appropriately nestled in the middle of a busy block on Cherokee Street, Future Ancestor is one of those places that Pinterest-lovers dream about. Newly opened by husband-and-wife team Brian and Julia Leenig, the tiny but mighty space is a welcome addition to the burgeoning arts district, offering a creatively curated selection of wares that include mid-century home decor and lifestyle goods, ’70s kitchenware and handmade items from local and regional makers. Entering the store is akin to walking into someone’s home: Carefully merchandised vignettes, fashionable furniture and handcrafted gems make every nook and cranny a fantastic photo op. The shop has quickly become a staple for the area’s stylish set, and there are plans in the works to branch out and develop the space as a haven for makers and artists. The owners are also looking to incorporate new items into their stock and to dive further into design services such as redecorating and styling events. Let’s just say home styling has never looked so chic.
