“This pandemic has reminded us to focus on the comfort of home and on creating spaces that nurture and encourage quality time with our families and loved ones. This is forcing us to design spaces with an emphasis on mindfulness and wellness. It’s also made us turn more to local artisans for custom yet affordable pieces since backorders has become the new norm. We are excited to see the support for local businesses/artists be a trend that we hope is here to stay.”
