Craftsmanship embodies passion, skill and artistry; all governed by the highest level of standards. I believe that these are the same core values that parallel my work ethic and enables me to deliver successful results.

What does “Made in Italy” mean to you?

“Made in Italy” exemplifies a commitment to quality. It gives the assurance that the piece behind the label was made by the skilled hands of an expert craftsperson; who sourced and chose the finest materials available specifically for the job at hand; based on years of tradition. It gives me confidence that I am getting the best.

Who/what has inspired the most your work and style?

I’ve been inspired mostly by my former employers Wayne Nathan and Robert Stilin. Both taught me to look with a different set of eyes; one from an artistic viewpoint and the other from a business viewpoint. I owe much to both.

Describe your design approach and philosophy.

Listen to the client- always. They always know what they want- even when they say they don’t.

What is the one design/décor you cannot imaging your clients (or yourself) living without?

A comfortable chair.

What is your idea of the “ultimate luxury”?

Nothing is more luxurious than a bed made with freshly ironed sheets.
