Urban Possibilities is a project of Community Partners©, a 501c3 non-profit organization


Stepping into the Urban Possibilities Boutique will make you feel anything is possible – including walking on water. Los Angeles artists Steve Seleska and Melanie Aron of Resin Floor Studio have refined a technique that makes you feel like you’re walking on an exquisitely painted lake. That’s the amazing effect of these stunning, eco-friendly custom floors being installed at our first boutique location

Steve has worked with resin
extensively in L.A. and Europe.
Melanie is an accomplished visual and sculptural artist. Together, they are creating one-of-a-kind custom floors that make any room a show- stopper. High impact, high shine, incredibly beautiful and extremely
durable. Couple that with their
commitment to help UP make a
difference and we’ve got inspired
design to help our clients dream –
and then do!
