Period Design Consultation
Renewed interest in historical decoration has meant more clients looking to recreate classical styles of ornamentation, whether a gothic mansion, an elaborate French paneled dining room or an English neoclassical bedroom. The challenge is to deliver the highest quality craftsmanship while keeping within budget.
For sophisticated projects to succeed, traditional handcraft trades have to understand and work alongside every other part of the project. Sadly, it is increasingly difficult to find designers and artisans with the experience and knowledge to meet these requirements and the capacity to handle them. A large project can quickly get out of control for an inexperienced craftsperson, no matter how good his or her skills are.
Our decades of experience in handling complex historical projects have taught us that tackling potential issues early in the design process will save you trouble, time and money. Working together, we will ensure your client's dream is realized. Whether you are in New York, Paris, London, Abu Dhabi or Shanghai, we can offer a comprehensive service—not only in architectural woodcarving but also in other decorative arts and trades through our network of colleagues.
Our period-style design consultation service provides:
• Hands-on project management. We can monitor quality, costs and delivery throughout the construction and installation process.
• Viable solutions for addressing costs without compromising quality
• Resources that help provide ideas and options for your clients
• Evaluation of artisans for skill, cost and deliverability, and assistance with meeting those goals
• Detailed renderings to present to your clients and directly to the artisans
• Ornamental carving samples that are historically and stylistically accurate
