We've Got it Covered

Barbara and I are happy to announce that a recent project has made the cover of the current issue of ASID’s Bridge To Design, the official publication and newsletter for the ASID, Northern California Chapter. The article, entitled “Rome Wasn’t Built in a Day… It Took Nine”, is a segment in the ongoing “Tales From The Trenches”. The article gives a birds eye glimpse of this fast paced and exciting project which demonstrated our ability to design and furnish a household (within given parameters) in a very short amount of time. I will say this… it wasn’t easy.

The client, a busy executive who had arrived in town a few days before meeting us, required a fully functioning household up and running in 9 days. The scope of work included the design, specification, purchase and installation of all furniture and furnishings, down to linens and accessories and which would also include household staffing, fresh flowers and a stocked pantry.

You might think the big prize on this job was knowing that we could do a smash up job in 9 days, but really, it was realizing first hand that all the great sources we’ve accumulated over the years were there for us and went out of their way to accommodate the deadline. It is them that we owe a debt of thanks.

The full story can be viewed on the ASID Northern California website here.
