How did you decide to launch a line of furniture? It's something I've always wanted to do, ever since I was in design school. The key for me was doing it at precisely the correct time in terms of my vision for the line, where I was in my career and, most of all, in terms of finding the correct partner/manufacturer for such an incredible undertaking.

What furniture lines or designers inspired your collection? The line was mostly inspired by iconic furniture pieces that have proven themselves for many years, but with a fresh and timely take for the way we live today. The inspiration ranged from Chippendale to Thomas O'Brien.
How would you describe the aesthetic of your furniture line? A multifaceted collection that is classic, authentic and smart with an unexpected, modern flair. The aesthetic balances elements in unique and beautiful ways: refined details mix with raw edges, industrial plays against organic, and materials, textures and palettes are used in unexpected ways.
In what ways do you continually refresh and update your look? For me, it's really not about "refreshing" the look. Instead, it's more about maturing, growing and continually developing the line in an organic and authentic way. It's the same thing I try to do for myself, both as a person and as a designer.
