Any potential client working with either Rick Shaver or Lee Melahn is struck by the unique perspective they possess in approaching a design project. With Expertise in interior, furniture and graphic design they fully utilize their diverse design backgrounds to provide clients with an interdisciplinary range of design services.
They have worked successfully since 1992 with both residential and contract clients creating spaces from design concept to gut renovations. Their mission has been to create spaces that reflect the needs and style of their clients within the framework of good design.
After a successful career designing and producing Industrial Shows they began their transition into the world of interior design. Rick Shaver returned to school at NYSID in 1988 and that same year signed his first design client. He earned his BFA in 1992 as valedictorian of his class.
Lee Melahn graduated from the University of Illinois with an Architectural degree and went on to get his Masters in Landscape Architecture with an emphasis on historical preservation before joining Rick in New York to start their industrial show business firm.
In 1998 along with the burgeoning interior design business they launched their own furniture line. The line is now available online through their website. The furniture is currently prominently placed in collections such as the Stanford University Library, The HBO Offices in New York City, The Smithsonian and The William Jefferson Clinton Presidential Library.
Our Interior design clients have included residential projects whose needs spanned traditional to contemporary design. We have also completed many contract projects for large and small firms, showrooms and charity events.
Their work has been featured in such esteemed publications as INTERIOR DESIGN, METROPOLITAN HOME, THE NEW YORK TIMES, SOUTHERN ACCENTS, THE ROBB REPORT, FINE FURNITURE INTERNATIONAL, IN STYLE, HAMPTONS, FURNITURE TODAY, FURNITURE STYLE, HFN, DESIGN TIMES, HOUSE BEAUTIFUL, O AT HOME and VERANDA.
