FAQs

Why should I hire a designer?


Designers offer a wealth of knowledge and access to networks that you may not otherwise reach. By hiring a designer you are making an investment for the long term. A designer can help you choose the right products and finishes that will stand the test of time, and negate the need for buying new furnishings every few years. Often times, the cost of hiring a designer is offset by the money you save by purchasing furnishings through the designer.




Can you incorporate my existing furniture?


Absolutely, if you have existing furniture that you want to keep just let us know during the initial consultation and we can work it into your design. Adapting and reusing existing furniture is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint and bring character to a space.




How long does each project take?


It depends on the scope of your project and the services you require. Shipping timelines are dependent on individual retailer policies, and any work done by trades is subject to their timelines. We are always happy to discuss the timelines of your project with you.




Can I buy proposed furnishings myself later on?


We want your design to be as bespoke as possible. The products we source can come from a variety of retailers, including custom workrooms and to-the-trade suppliers, for this reason those items have to be purchased through us.




What if I want to change something in my final design?


We want you to be completely happy with your final design, so once we present your proposal to you, you are more than welcome to remove or change any items you are not completely in love with. If you change your mind after products have been purchased, returns are subject to retailer policies and fees.
