Inspiration

There’s a certain quality that every passionate designer possesses: a constant, never-ending sense of curiosity.

Life becomes an ongoing quest to find hidden gems, a never-ending hunt for those things that inspire us, those things that feed us, as artists, as creatives, as professionals. Whether it’s found in the splendor radiating from the Empire State Building or in the industrial vibe of our favorite wine shop, Pasanella and Son, our concrete jungle is filled with cues that lead us to celebrate both past and present, and to fan creative flames for the future.

Since color acts as a vital accessory to the most amazing projects, rooms, and design concepts, we are unearthing the very best in NYC.

We’ve scoured the city for exceptional design finds that use and promote exceptional color. From the Eames chair that sits in the eclectic bakery down the street in Fort Greene, to the brownstone in Cobble Hill receiving refurbishment, to the trendy farm-to-table restaurant project in Chelsea, we find inspiration everywhere.

We believe meticulous craftsmanship comes with the finest color. And being members of your tribe, and co-conspirators in the search for design excellence, our desire is to share what we’re excited about. We want to further your efforts as style ambassadors and keepers of cool, so we’re bringing the beauty right to you.
