1) What is it about your top choices [see left] that you think makes them perfect for this spring?

For me personally it is hard to choose furniture based on a season, but I've focused on some things that are FRESH, like spring.

2) In your own words describe your unique style and creative aesthetic?

My personal style is described by these three words : comfort, clean and practical. However, I have to admit that my style has changed throughout the years. It's a natural organic progression.

3) When starting a new design project, what is your creative process?

The first step to the creative process is intent (knowing that I have a new project to complete and wanting to get it done), after that the next step is gathering information and when I think that I have enough information the exploring part (using the information to achieve the initial goal).

4) Is there a building that you find yourself revisiting repeatedly, because of it’s beautiful and inspiring interiors?

There are so many beautiful buildings that can be admired today so it is really hard to just choose just one. Actually it’s impossible to choose a favorite because picking a “favorite” somehow makes all the other options seem less interesting.
