Eric and Kellie's wonderfully bright and modern loft is punctuated by a serendipitous story (pun intended!). Shortly after moving into their loft, housed in a converted pencil factory, Eric launched his business making handcrafted carry goods. There's something special about a maker living and working in a space that once produced pencils, one of the essential tools of the creative process.
