Anywhere in North America - please email or phone for pricing, shipping rates and lead times. Remember, all artwork and furniture is unique and custom made and therefore subject to lead times for construction and finishing work before shipping if not in stock at the time of purchase.

What areas do you service for local room renovations and services?

I work primarily in the NC Piedmont/Triad area, RTP and Outer Banks for in-home consultation, design build and installation work.

What materials do you use for artistic furniture and lighting?

I work with high quality new materials and “interesting” found or reclaimed materials including hand selected woods, reclaimed barn wood, computer motherboards and circuit boards, reclaimed vintage electronic panels and components, various metals, wire, glass, acrylic, and specialized or fabricated hardware and electronics. All lighting is LED where possible for energy efficiency and color temperature selected.
