The Paris Flea Markets

Updated: Nov 28, 2018

There is strong argument for vintage elements in my work -- pieces that lend projects a grounding sense of place and history.


I love the depth of things that have age and I like to bring objects that have patina into a home -- essential layering that distinguishes my design.


The Paris Flea Market is the ultimate source for authentic period pieces. At the time of my first visit, I was working on completely new construction. I discovered works with great scale and provenance to suggest some historical context in contrast to the absolute newness of the project.


Unique sculpture and interesting textiles are some of my favorite finds, layered into a single room and into a home, providing rooms with a beautiful spirit that invites you to dream.
