Tell us about your business.

We have been in business since 2001 and made it through the recession and a fire that took everything from us. Family friends workers and vendors put us back togeather in 2 weeks under tents in our parking lot and away we went. A sequins gown, a photo from a vintage movie set or a broken down deco chair on the side of the road are some of the ways we are inspired in developing our products. Casegoods, pottery, lighting, bedding and beyond!

Tell us about your workspace, shop, or studio.

Our lab and factory is filled with fabrics buttons bows and piles of vintage furniture. 30ft sequins drapes and enough factory space for the future. Its rich in everything one needs to keep american design moving forward.

What inspires you?

So much of what i do comes from wwmmd (what would my mother do). Right now i'm channeling i dream of jeenies bottle interior color for pillows on sofas, endora from bewitched gowns for curtains and vintage perfume bottles for lighting. 70's medditeranian with its over scaled wood detail is hitting me hard for casegoods. And i just cant get enough of crushed charcoal velvet for everything I'm building in seating.
