Featured in "Show House Stars" New England Home Sept/Oct 2016

Tracy Foley and I are honored to have been featured in New England Home's September/October 2016 issue in "Rooms We Love:  Show House Stars" by Paula M.

Textile Collaboration with Dowel Furniture

I'm excited to announce my textile collaboration with Dowel Furniture.  Dowel Furniture offers chairs "built to last" at "prices within reach."  It is affordable furniture with solid construction and high-quality raw materials put together by craftsmen that have been making furniture for over twenty years.  With Dowel you can choose a frame, choose a finish, and choose my fabric, or any fabric they offer, or you can customize with your own material and have it delivered directly to you.  Quality and customization at a price that won't break the bank.
