We really mix it up, there are so many amazing lights…even though we have only placed the Chisholm Hall pendant once we have specified them about 20 times. The shape and freshness really appeal to us.
(1) Gwenwood for bedrooms, (2) Punch for just about anywhere (it’s so adaptable), (3) Melissa is so classic but with the Lucite they have a twist. (4) Love the Urban Smokebell and (5) Lincless fixtures just rock. (6) We are about to use the Carriage Wall lanterns and are really excited!
Our design philosophy is made up of a few things. We take our direction from the client’s dreams. We really spend time culling over their tearsheets and talking about what they envision. We want to design something that they couldn’t quite imagine. We stress quality over quantity, there is always room for a little cheap chic, but you need the base to stand the test of time, both style wise and physically. Lastly, it should be fun…not every minute is fun of course, but we want our clients to leave the stress to us and be excited for the install. Trust=Success.
People may not know how much we truly enjoy each other’s company, we are like a big family. Plus we are very entertaining. We eat, sleep and breathe a clients’ house…we are emailing and texting each other night and day about a project.
Powder Rooms are an easy go to for expressing strong style, but I really love dining rooms and libraries. We would like to do more libraries. Best thing would be a dining room/library combo!

Don’t be bogged down by rules.
I collect little bowls, boxes and jade. My grandparents handed down an obsession for jade.
French White is an ICI color that they basically refer to as Maison White at this point. We use a lot of gray in every form and when we are in the mood we go with shrimp and emerald tones.
We always refer to any book by Michael S. Smith but we have piles of them at the shop that we use for inspiration.
