Design Studio 6 is a 3,800 square foot emerging interior design studio owned by April McGee Flournoy. It is located in Detroit's Bagley and Fitzgerald neighborhoods, and the former art studio of her father Charles McGee for over 41 years. In 2017 Marygrove College designated the area as the Charles McGee Community Commons and the metal sculpture created by Charles McGee, located at Wyoming and West McNichols, was dedicated to creatives in the area to encourage collaboration, community involvement, inspiration and unity.
The Studio Story
Studio 6 is the work and collaboration space of April McGee Flournoy, owner of Interior Compositions, and interior design associates Alex Designs and Detroit design:rehab who collectively specialize in interior design, event design, project management and design technology. The Studio is multi-functional and comprised of a work studio, gallery and artisan retail shop. The gallery is a collaboration, meeting and private rental space for community creatives and entrepreneurs, and a workshop space for youth and other individuals who are interested in special craft events, and the process and business of interior design. The small artisan retail shop features studio apparel, home goods and custom gifts made by local designers and makers.
The Studio officially launched on September 26, 2020 during a Design Core Detroit Month of Design open house. The event engage the Bagley and Fitzgerald community and Detroit metropolitan area business owners, youth, local creatives and a network of supporters, to inform them of the services we offer and the programs and workshops that will be scheduled during 2021 and beyond.
We're always looking for new and exciting opportunities to inspire the creative community and collaborate with other inner city designers and entrepreneurs.
