Where do you source new materials?
I look to our high-end galleries we work with the connect me to artisans. We always try to work collaboratively with them and create something unique for our clients.
Who are your favorite designers/galleries?
What are some of your favorite materials to use?
Lately I’m having fun experimenting with resin, rock crystal and selenite materials.
What’s your favorite upholstery material?
I love upholstering in a luxe silk velvet. It is very delicate and has a direction to it when upholstering. When it’s done right, there’s nothing better!
How can I use marble in a formal entry foyer?
We love to experiment with all different varieties of marble. Sometimes an interesting slab is enough to make a statement, other times we create custom floor patterns and even add details such as metal inlays.
