Ruby’s Road Trip Visits: Bridge Furniture & Props ATL

Another place I wanted to swing by was Bridge Furniture & Props in Atlanta. Matt has been expanding to multiple states over the last couple of years and I was interested to see what they had going on here.

Claire Foley (the Atlanta location of Bridge’s manager) showed us around. Their same genre of art and contemporary furniture is also a part of the collection over in Atlanta.
IMG_4509Lighting, furniture, and more abound!

IMG_4506If you are in Atlanta, you will not regret swinging by Bridge Furniture & Props. They’ve got a great collection that won’t need to be shipped (of course they have collections in 3 states, so shipping isn’t out of the question either).

Ruby’s Road Trip Visits: Alpha Companies, Atlanta

The next spot Ruby and I swung by was Alpha Companies‘ location in Atlanta.
IMG_4460They are known for their large inventory of medical props and furniture as well as office dressing and furniture. Their location in Atlanta, GA is no exception to that.

Robert Vanasco, the prop manager, was helpful in walking Ruby and I around to see what they’ve got.

Of course Ruby managed to distract a little as she’s want to do sometimes of course.

CEO of Debbies Book, Ruby, and I had a chance to swing by some prop houses in Atlanta.

The first of which was the Warner Bros. Studios Property department branch.

Nikki, the manager of the Atlanta location, was very welcoming to Ruby before showing me around their warehouse.

It was a pleasant surprise to find so many items over here. Their already large inventory has even expanded recently due to the acquisition of a recently finished project. Nikki was happy to show me around a bit.

A nice selection of dressing and hand props, including some interesting busts:

(Apparently we know where some of MacGyver is being shot at).

It’s a good space with antiques, trunks and books too:

Like any good prop house it has range as well:

All in all, Warner Bros Atlanta location is a great stop. Of course anything over in Los Angeles can be easily shipped over too!

[Video] A Love Letter to Plywood – Breakdown of Plywood Video

My good friend Tim Hogan, the properties director at PCPA, brought this wonderful video to my attention and I felt compelled to show everyone else the video.

It is called, “A Love Letter to Plywood,” but it is much more than that. It is an excellent breakdown of the uses of plywood and an introduction to how to implement those uses.

Check out the video below:
