Furniture company Floyd, and two others, to relocate to Eastern Market

In a bit of development news, three established businesses are moving their offices to a new redevelopment in Eastern Market. 

One of those businesses is Floyd, a Detroit-based furniture company that first gained notoriety for its "Floyd Leg," which allows any flat surface to become a table. It has since designed a modular bed frame and more standard table. The company has gotten considerable national press, and even a visit from Martha Stewart.

Floyd will be relocating to the building at 1830-48 Division Street, just east of the Dequindre Cut and recently renovated by the developer Marshall Pryce. The company was previously located at the business incubator Ponyride, which itself earlier this month announced plans to sell its 30,000 square-foot Corktown building and move to Recycle Here!'s renovated space. 

The Eastern Market building has already secured two other tenants, Anthology Coffee, also coming from Ponyride, and Et Al. an architecture firm that is leading the renovation of the building itself.
