Alan and Lorri met in 1990, he an interior finishing contractor and she an interior designer. Alan was a fine craftsman with loyal clients until his retirement in 2012 when his body could no longer handle the required heavier physical demands. Not willing to give up what he loved to do most, he scaled his craft from homes to furnishings.

Lorri changed paths and went into education, but never being an in-the-box kinda girl, she continued to design, decorate and create when time allowed—and even when it didn’t. What she found she loved most (besides Alan) was finding a discarded piece of furniture, an outdated home decor, a piece of nature or even an unwanted broken part of anything and turning it into functional art.

In planning her retirement from education, Lorri and Alan decided to start their new business. Initially, Lorri did the design and art while Alan made sure the integrity of each piece was of a quality but as they have worked together their strengths have blended and their inspirations grew!
