Williams-Sonoma Original Store Visit

  Last year, Williams-Sonoma reopened their original store, which was founded in the quaint town of Sonoma, California in 1956 by Chuck Williams.

Fixtures and materials were salvaged from the original… Read More

Savvy Succulents

  We had a client who was interested in enhancing his outdoor space. He traveled extensively for work and wanted decoration that needed minimal maintenance. We loved the idea of a succulent wall.
