We are a small team of Superstars.

Our passion is creating upscale looks–for so much less. 

Our designers have worked at high-end places (Armani, Thom Filicia, Inc., The Metropolitan Museum, Soho Grand Hotel, etc.) where we spent thousands on furnishings from exclusive boutiques for our clients.

We translated luxe looks to fit our budgets at places like West Elm, Overstock, & Ikea.
