This fun blue sofa livens up the space and creates an inviting place to land. We love the eclectic and quirky pieces paired together in this living space.

Hospitality Bathrooms

Hospitality and commercial spaces require a different approach than residential projects for many different reasons.  The challenges of high-use space and general human factors make these projects difficult but rewarding.

This space showcases different layers of light that illuminate the gorgeous rough texture in the brick walls and highlight the original art imprinted on it.
