Company coming this summer?

Summertime means company’s coming, and we have the dinner solution for you!

Not menus, perhaps, but big dining tables for all those meals…

MAI’s three buildings are packed with tables of all sizes, shapes and finishes. Custom orders are welcome, too. Come see us soon!

Sale-ing into summer…

There’s nothing like a sale, right? Check out Ashley Radack’s gorgeous space in Building 1. She’s making room for an unloading, and we think you will love shopping her sale this week.
