Tell us about your business.We are dream chasers who left desk jobs to make it in the arts. It hasn't always been easy but it has been well worth it. We are a Super Mom and Super Dad team that put our whole hearts into everything we do. When we say this is a family business, it's not solely because it's family owned. Our kids, our friends, and family can be found in our workshop at any given time. Every piece is made with love and laughs. For the last 15 years we've been doing custom work in a wide variety of styles. In that time we developed our own sensibility and this June we launched our first line at Dwell on Design. The reception to our work has been amazing. One article even called us "An artistic gem". We're still blushing. http://www.modenus.com/blog/interiordesign/holme-designs-an-artistic-gem-out-of-california Check out our stuff. The longer you look at the pictures the better your day will be. And if you actually vote for us, you'll surely have a great life.
What makes your business stand out?Our family is a dream of happiness, creativity, consideration, and giving. I have to believe that some of who we are, goes home with our customers when they buy one of our pieces.
What's the best business advice you've received?Own who you are and incorporate your personality into your business.
