    Tell everyone about your company, Flags of Origin:
    Flags Of Origin is a small design firm that specializes in restaurants, commercial office spaces, custom furniture and lighting. We try our best to stick by the “made in the USA” tag and support the people around us that make things so each space has a sense of purpose and each space feels made by hand.

    Current project:
    We are currently in production on prototyping new lighting fixtures that we hope to sell as well as a new high end restaurant in Atlanta. The chef is a secret but it should be an exciting addition to the Bacchanalia crowd.

    Now would ya look at that:
    Meet Josh Charles, owner and designer at Flags of Origin. This was photographed in a recent remodel he worked on for the Atlanta HQ of Company 3Beast and Method Studios which specialize in Post Production editing. Deluxe Entertainment selected us to design the company’s East Coast office in Atlanta. Deluxe Entertainment is the US’s largest, and oldest, post-house. They’ve edited films such as Iron Man, Inception, Selma, and Skyfall. At a vast 20,000 square feet, divided between two floors in a Class A Building, this was our largest project to date.

    Favorite items on your current menu:
    Some of my favorite items on the menu now are our Burrata, Fluke Crudo, Flounder with Lentils and Smoked Leeks, Bluefish Arancini and Black and White Spaghetti with Crab.

    Now would ya look at that:
    Meet Craig Richards, Executive Chef at St. Cecilia. I had the pleasure of meeting him a few weeks ago while Jess and I were downing their delicious drinks on a rainy afternoon. The restaurant wasn’t open yet, so we posted up at the bar. Craig was running around and we both couldn’t help but notice his rad chef look. I didn’t realize that he was the Executive Chef until right before snapping this photo. It was an unexpected honor, to say the least.
