Composing a Story

For me a really great home is an expression of its inhabitants. This is true in all of the selections made, but perhaps even more so, in the choice of accessories. These items tell the story of who lives here, their point of view, their passions, travels, and desires. I am always delighted when a client is a collector, it can start a dialog for the design of their residence, and provide unique opportunities in the making of a special place. While some are very specific, others can be more random and eclectic.
To create dynamic relationships between objects I will often inject strong contemporary objects within arrangements. One of my favourite sources for these, is Provide, they represent modern artisans who fabricate beautifully crafted works.
The composition on this large bamboo coffee table is a great example of objects playing against each other, to tell a story.
