Rescue, research, restore, repeat

I’ve had many titles in my professional life, but I’m a conservationist at heart–and now an official member of the circular economy. And nothing motivates me more than saving master craftsmanship from the jaws of extinction (yeah…I’ve been known to dumpster dive.)

What’s surprised me through the in-depth research I conduct to identify, value and properly restore furnishings is the historical significance that many of them represent. It brings even more meaning and joy to my work when I’m able to match items with buyers that share the same appreciation or curiosity. View the collection of rescued items that are designer and high-end furnishings ready for a second life.
