This Lansing establishment is more than just a gallery! The gallery displays refined concrete carved art and is home to the internationally acclaimed artist, Tiffany Marie. La Fille has a 10,000 sq ft showroom, working studio, and event space spanning over four stories.

Partners in Design: A Unique Event Series

Every month we host our popular Partners in Design event series when we welcome a new design partner into our Lansing, MI showroom. Each event is a chance to learn about a local business – who they are, their story as a local entrepreneur, the products or services they offer, and all about their area of expertise. These local design partners range from cake and confectionery specialists to wine producers, and everything in between! Each has a unique story to share, and the fun and educational events are an opportunity to gather with local friends and neighbors. Come along to support local businesses and to learn something new!

About La Fille Gallery

The history of the building where La Fille Gallery is located is a key part of downtown Lansing. It houses one of the area’s oldest (and still functioning!) elevators. The gallery’s three floors each have their own personality, and each is filled with unique art created by Tiffany Maria, the gallery’s owner.

Each floor in the gallery creates its own colorful vibe: the gallery floor has exquisite art displays, the jazz floor includes stunning chandeliers and exposed brick, and the vault floor has a DJ booth and patio access. The gallery’s art stands out and is presented in many mediums. There is so much to be inspired by on every floor of La Fille Gallery. It is a standout in the greater Lansing area as one of the most unique event venues.

What Happened at Our February Event?

Brendan Sutherland of La Fille Gallery joined us for this event, held in our Lansing, MI showroom on February 20th. He shared his knowledge and expertise with the participants, including:
