What inspires you?
I love wood... sustainability, and the exhilaration of creating something made from nature that's worn and used in the house. That idea excites me, it makes me jump out of bed, in the morning, ready to begin my day. I would like to say I created this brand, but the truth is the concept chose me, the excitement of this idea popped in my head one day and hasn't left me since. I am truly blessed to do what I love.
Architecture: Acadians and Victorians, rust from wroth iron fences (the small details you only notice, when on a leisurely stroll through the city).
The smells, of the food, coming from my favorite restaurant, Mardi Gras; things I can't package and get anywhere else in the world. The random parades that pop up out of nowhere. The mixture of all the different components that make New Orleans great. It doesn't matter if it's Jazz Fest or the Treme Fest people want a piece of what we have. It inspires me and others who gravitate to this city on a daily basis.
