C. G. Sparks, a sensory-rich shopping experience in Salt Lake City’s Warehouse District
My tangential connection to C.G. Sparks goes back to it's infancy as a catering/production company started by Chrisanne Olsen and Gary Vlasic, who lent their initials "C.G." to the name. Through their travels abroad, specifically to India, the company divined it's true calling sourcing antiques, objets d'art and beautiful custom-made reclaimed furniture.
Now, more than a decade later, C.G. Sparks is still rocking the imported goodness here in Salt Lake and humming exquisitely under the direction of owner Michael Hennessey and his team of "design-obsessed" individuals, including business manager Brandalynn Davis and art director Frederick Vaughn Robison (to mention a few of my friends). Together, they provide an embarrassment of talent which is poured seasonally into their 13,000 square-foot showroom and equally impressive online presence, turning C.G. Sparks into less of a furniture store and more a full-on sensory, travel experience.
