“Working with Laura was a pure delight. She listened well and guided me towards these chairs which are as sturdy as they are comfortable.

Laura was on point with every design selection and captured all of our requests for function, space, and style!” “The rug is remarkable, not only tying together all of the furniture and color selections but the existing features of the home—the beams and fireplace [...]

With a new, brighter, larger layout, the old furniture looked under-scaled and heavy feeling. With [...]
