Furniture shopping, 101
I've worked in retail for about 13 years now and I've accumulated a few solid bits of knowledge. Today, I'll share one of the most important pieces: if you're looking to get great service, do not shop on a weekend. Seems pretty obvious, but every weekend I see clients who are frustrated by the lack of resources-people, time, samples, available to them. Sometimes stores are unable to meet unexpectedly high traffic and the loser in that situation is you, the customer.
Field Trip-Pantages Theater
Last night I caught the opening night of "Once" during their run in LA. I've been looking forward to it for months. Not only did I enjoy a wonderful show, but the Pantages Theater is a true Deco gem.
Opened on June 4, 1930, the Pantages was one of the last vaudeville theaters before the transition to cinema.
Back in the saddle
After a very long hiatus, which included a move to south Florida and another to Los Angeles, I'm finally getting back to pursuing private design work. The first step in that is getting my website back and running again.
