Take a Tour of Stone Fox Bride’s Stunning Office Space

Wandering around New York’s ultra-chic shopping district of SoHo, the grand intersection seems to be Houston and Broadway. An imposing Hollister mural on one corner, the alluring and oftentimes slightly jarring Calvin Klein ad on another. Anchoring the northwest corner, the giant Crate & Barrel store. This is a cornerstone of the shopping landscape, a marvel officially known as the landmarked 1894 Cable Building by the renowned architecture firm of McKim, Mead & White. Looking up the facade, a row of arched windows lines the sixth floor. This is the lair of Stone Fox Bride.

Founded in 2012 by creative director Molly Guy, the company has quickly become the wedding boutique for the engaged and hip. Clients have come to include Jemima Kirke (“Girls”), Aimee Osbourne (that would be Ozzy and Sharon’s daughter), and model May Anderson. But as is the difficulty with popularity, the company’s loft space no longer accommodated its need for retail, consultation, and office areas. The headquarters had to catch up with the nontraditional brand, and Molly chose Homepolish to take on the challenge.

Designer Matthew Cane walked into the space and was struck by the sight of a large tent structure. From the initial tour, he knew that he wanted to refocus the eye. “I knew that the most striking moment would be to walk into the loft and see the large arching window. I wanted to rearrange the space to show off the visuals and the product, the sunlight shining through the translucent ivory and white fabrics.” Through inventive repurposing of materials and steady collaboration with Molly, the loft transformed into a dreamlike space to inspire foxy brides-to-be.

In 2012, Molly Guy founded Stone Fox Bride. It has since become the unofficial anti-wedding boutique, and Homepolish's Matthew Cane came in to channel this nontraditional, irreverent vibe and infuse it into its loft.

Matthew saved this confetti wall system from the previous office. He knew it would provide a great backdrop for books and projects.

The changing areas are delineated by simple blackened steel rods and curtains.

Uncovering the large arched window, which looks down on the busy thoroughfare of Houston Street, was a main goal of Matthew's. The artistic craft was already there, and the rest of the window was left open to allow sunlight to stream through and highlight the whites and ivories of the dresses.

Dresses are all invariably beautiful, giving off an effortless look of chic.

Matthew and Molly moving around a mobile rack of wedding dresses. Both are wildly creative, and Matthew said of his collaborator: "Molly is very confident and she has a clear-cut vision for her company. She is in tune with her brand and how every move she makes reflects the whole. Design of the Stone Fox Bride space was an essential aspect of moving the company as a whole forward."

The white birch clothing racks were actually a salvaged item from the old office. Previously, they had just been stacked in a corner. Matthew cut them to size to show off the product.

The office space even has a dedicated intern space and storage, though you'd never guess!

Closer to the entrance (but still within reach of all that natural light), a collaborative workspace is surrounded by pictures and textiles to keep the employees creative.

The space in its entirety breathes in the afternoon sun. It looks absolutely serene. As Matthew says, "The whole design concept of the Stone Fox Bride space was to make it look so effortlessly chic so as to seem that a designer hadn’t even touched it. Sometimes the best design hides the hand of the maker behind the work."

Originally a temporary quick fix, pink tape is used as a nonchalant way to tack up wedding inspo.
