“While I’m in the middle of a custom project I often find myself marveling at what a wonderful medium we have. If you’re going to work with any given textile for surfaces, why not one that allows you to travel from 17th century Japanese printmaking to Spanish damasks from the 1800′s to 60′s Modernism? Oh, and by the way, then let’s put them together in the same room using similar exquisite textures and colors!”
One of my favorite quotes by Sam Saifer-Berngard is “Success isn’t easy and it’s certainly not for the lazy.” Success for me is relational and beyond business – it’s about getting to know my clients, taking their abstract ideas and translating them into tangible works of art. I strive to exceed expectation while making my clients dreams a reality. I like to think of my job as not just designing rugs but rather imbuing ones aesthetic and style into a custom expression of who they are.
