How does sustainability factor into your design choices and love of vintage?
I prefer to select pieces that are made by hand with a history and a person standing behind them. I appreciate artisans’ abilities to make pieces deliberately unique in a warm, understated way. Our designs are better when we add significant, one of a kind pieces in our work.

What do you find most compelling about Chairish?
I love that Chairish feels like shopping in flea markets and vintage antiques stores all around the world without ever needing to travel to find the pieces. I’ve always mixed old with new and have said that a brand-new house lacks a soul unless there are at least a few old, vintage things in the mix. Shopping on Chairish can give a home that global, inherited feel.

Favorite way to create a statement-making moment in a room?
To create a statement-making moment in a room, I embrace bold contrasts that ignite the senses. I love infusing a room with an unexpected twist, which you can achieve in a few ways—the more the better!  From a striking piece of original art, to a vivid splash of color, or a patterned wallpaper that captivates and intrigues. When you layer these elements it’s the perfect recipe for creating a statement-moment that’s not just seen, but deeply felt.

What advice do you have for first-time clients about making their spaces truly personal?
Bombard yourself with visual information. See as much as you possibly can and start to assess whether certain themes emerge from the images you select. Is there a common thread in the images you love? Is it a color scheme you are drawn to? A time period? Is it minimal, maximal, traditional, avant garde? Make no apologies for what you love and run with it.
