    Accessories Academy: Reinventing the Table with Peak Season

    The distinction between what is indoors and what is outdoors has become irrelevant.  The home is a universal space for daily activities to occur with seamless transitions.  People need a home filled with pieces that are multipurpose- on purpose for their lives to function (be lived) and to reinforce their identity (be inspired).  Accessories typically complete the look by finalizing the “useability” of the space.  We think they should be the focal not finishing point of the design process, incorporating the extreme versatility and reuse of each accessory as an essential component to their style. Maximize your client’s investment and capabilities to rearrange or redecorate as needed.  Join us as we look at reinventing the table indoors and out to Live an Inspired Life.
