I think it is fair to say that I am in love with designing and creating custom furniture. It is truly what makes a home unique. There is something so invigorating about the process of seeing your design come to life! It has taken me years to build up a team of wonderful craftsman and artisans, each one a true expert in his or her own craft.
The design, no the heart, of an upholstered piece is created by the relationships between the fabric and the frame, the shape and scale, the finish and the tailoring… I start by pulling inspiration photos and fabrics, then sketching ideas. The design of the piece needs to look and feel just right to both me and the client, and once they have approved it, I submit the design as a “tech package” to the specific craftsmen involved. The tech package outlines the materials, measurements, finishes, and timeframe. Once the pieces are in production, my team vigilantly ensures progress and confirms that all details are met. Though I know this process can take some time, it is so worth it.
Here are a few custom pieces I recently installed.
