In this time together, we review your tastes, functional needs and set parameters for the aesthetic world. We cover all the most important design and project elements, so your seating is always comfortable, your style is always on-point, and the quality level meets your expectations.
“Discovery Day”: Using showrooms in NYC or your local area, we explore aesthetics, quality and we expose you to what the design world can offer. Are you traditional, transitional or contemporary? What is a comfortable sofa to you? How about a dining chair? Need custom dimensions? Most clients just don’t know, and this and more is what this day lets you discover.
“Color Exploration”: Our gut-reaction color exercise quickly narrows down a rainbow of color possibilities into a palette that resonates most with you. Most clients find this to be quite fun, and walk away with a sneak peek of what’s to come.
“How You Live”: Our conversational-style questions let us ensure that your home functions smoothly from the minute you wake up to the moment you fall asleep.
