A miniature model of the chair made prior to construction is also included. There is most definitely only one of these in the world.

Me.  Whilst working at Warner Brothers on big budget production films, I worked closely with the Set Dec & Props teams that source and buy each piece used in sets - including antiques. The use of antiques in film sets is entirely aesthetically driven and this appealed to me. After about 5 years of being involved in this work, I decided that I wanted to buy and sell things also with an entirely aesthetically driven approach. So, I left the the film gig and began room.

'room' is more than just the name, it's the concept. Showing pieces by room, as I would arrange them, as opposed to category. The intention is to give the viewer an opportunity to see different pieces from different categories next to one another. My studio doesn't have a corner of chairs or a corner solely dedicated to lighting, so I didn't want my site to.

My style has been described as very 'LA'. It's antiquated yet contemporary, colourful and sometimes not. I am and I like things that are a little offbeat and I want the things I buy as well as the way I present them, to be reflective of that.
