"Color is a power which directly influences the soul." ~Wassily Kandinski

I take my time and really get to know each piece of fine furniture before I design. This can take a week - and sometimes as long as a month. These chairs are like my characters in a play. And similar to a costumier designing for the theatre, I feel the energy of the production and let my creativity flow.
Each piece is meticulously upholstered by master craftsman.
"Whatever satisfies the soul is truth."
Like a painter, my passion is color and design, but my inspiration comes directly from my rich and varied life.
I get to know each piece when I design. I get to know it and feel it.
No two designs are the same.
"When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you."
Some of my chairs are vintage and hand-carved, and some are new designer pieces.
My fabrics are scrumptious and often come from well known textile designers. Trims, tassels & buttons are gathered from around the globe.
