The People 

Along with SuAnne is the active support of her husband, Rick. Being married to a general contractor has helped her become a better designer in understanding the critical path as well as selections and specifications in a timely manner to keep construction moving forward. Rick is always there to assist with project production. 

Designing and manufacturing furniture for each project is something that has become a big part of our success. This customized approach helps you find the size, color and signature that will distinguish your home. Creating hand built pieces along with talented local artisans helps control deadlines more efficiently as well as giving you uncompromising quality and a timeless design with a personal touch.
