I've long searched for things that are unique, one-off or designed for a very particular location or situation. I modify and alter my clothing and change hardware, finishes or fabric on many things I buy for myself and my clients. This has lead me to estate sales, flea markets, garage sales and the cool vintage & consignment shops around the Bay Area. It's a fun treasure hunt and it capitalizes on my interest in art history, jewelry design and fabrication, craft, industrial design and fashion.
I've also recently designed and installed a brass sconce that was made for me in India by an established factory that creates lighting for other big name companies. It is the direction I want to take moving forward, by incorporating more unique finds and creating more custom lighting, decor and furnishings. Some of the things that really catch my attention are mid-century furniture and ceramics, hand finished metals, abstract oil paintings, wool throws, wall decor, cocktail rings and cashmere.
