When Michelle Qazi moved into her first apartment in Los Angeles, she discovered her love for decorating and built an appreciation of vintage furnishings. Fresh out of college and a small budget to work with, Michelle scoured flea markets, estate sales and vintage stores to furnish her apartment. Finding out she had a keen eye for design and quality, she turned this passion into a business.
In April 2015, Michelle opened up the Etsy store, 6th And Detroit. 6th And Detroit is a carefully curated home décor store that showcases a mix of mid century, 60s and 70s in a modern setting. Knowing the power of social media, Michelle used Instagram to drive sales. She curates each post as if she’s designing a corner or section of a home. Her online store and social sites quickly became a shopping destination for designers and vintage décor enthusiasts. A year later, Michelle fulfilled her lifelong dream of owning a store and opened 6th And Detroit’s first brick and mortar showroom in Downtown Long Beach's East Village Arts District.
