What are your inspirations?
We find inspiration in lots of places; fashion, art, magazines, and websites such as yours. We get fixated on colors that we love and foreign travel always sparks new ideas.
Which interior designers are you fans of?
Jean-Louis Benoit, Thomas O’Brien, Muriel Brandolini
What is your favorite project and why?
The current project is usually the favorite as you are fully engaged in the creative process.
What are your criteria for the products you choose for your designs? And where do you look for them?
The product should be fit for purpose and be aesthetically pleasing. We source from all over the world, from suppliers as far afield as the Philippines, the US, and Japan. We attend all the trade fairs, shop for antiques from 1stDibs so our vintage pieces could come from Miami or San Francisco, or Chicago and are constantly on the lookout for new manufacturers.
How did your partnership start?
We were working individually as interior designers when Eleanora was approached to pitch for a large project and asked me to help. We worked well together and discovered we had the same likes and dislikes and decided to join forces.
