It is with great excitement that I announce my next venture, MADE.
You know, when I started out in the industry the “good ol’ boys” back home in North Carolina told me I was crazy to get into the furniture business. Through the years I sometimes thought they were right. Ups and downs aside, it’s been the most rewarding and inspiring of times. This next step is the natural progression for me. I’ve had the fortune of assisting incredibly talented people as they craft homes where lives are lived and made. I’ve also had the fortune of championing the passions of makers, who design and build products with the human experience in mind. We’ve all talked about the changing nature of the industry and what it means to work with the luxury market during a new age of priorities in living and in shopping. Our industry is tactile, yet our increased efficiency in it demands more time behind a screen. Above all it demands service and collaboration that is immediate, proactive, and available.
MADE is something I’ve been thinking about for some time. This next step is the first in several to making the full concept become reality. I’m always on the hunt for new ideas and products that bring freshness to the work of my clients. I hope you will find my approach useful and find inspiration in the works of the amazing product designers I represent.
I’m looking forward to seeing you all in The New Year!
