FAMILY HEIRLOOM


One of the things I love most about my job is the opportunities I have to be in on surprising loved ones with special gifts. This settee was commissioned by a client in Houston as a gift for her sister. She sent me the scan of an old polaroid and asked that I immortalize this delicate family piece. How's that for a thoughtful sister? I'd love to collaborate with you on a special surprise for someone - please contact me here for details and pricing.
