Those of you still lamenting the loss of Propagation, the short-lived coffeehouse/furniture store in Mills 50, take heart.

Craft & Common, by husband-and-wife team Brandon and Lindsay Duensing, will bring a similar concept this summer to the downtown core.

The space will "blend thoughtfully curated modern home decor and accessories with a specialty coffee bar" said Lindsay Duensing in an email.

"Our goal is to create an engaging social atmosphere through a carefully appointed space blending
clean contemporary colors, modern desert elements, professional interior landscaping and sleek Southern California design."

Inspiration for Craft & Common came from the couple's travels across the country. The Duensings set out from their home in San Diego and traveled 15,000 miles across 10 states in seven months before parking their RV and settling in Orlando (she's a Florida native; he's a UCF grad).

Their store will occupy a 2,200-square-foot space at 47 E. Robinson St. (former home of Java Lava) and will offer a variety of home decor items, gifts, stationery, and accessories emphasizing bright colors and graphic patterns.

"Think Williams-Sonoma with an espresso bar," says Lindsay. "We're going for a SoCal vibe and the goal is to make it feel fun, social and cohesive."

Craft & Common will use Intelligentsia Coffee and will also offer pastries and other locally made goods.
