What is the most important decision is buying a piece of furniture?


I think making sure you give thought to how will I feel about this choice a few years down the road, will I regret the fabric choice and most of all scale, if it ends up overpowering the room you will regret the purchase every time you look at it.


What is our favorite thing to hear from your customers?

That I made the process wonderful and easy for them, at the end of the day it’s that which puts a smile on my face and makes me proud of what I do.
