After two decades in the design industry, we are thrilled to embark on this new adventure.  For years, Karen Quiana and Leslie Linksman have worked with talented artisans, craftspeople, and manufacturers to fill our clients' homes with art, furnishings and accessories. In our travels, we would often come across interesting and beautiful products that weren't suitable for a project we were working on at the time. Inspired, we would walk away with tear sheets, photos and company information, hoping that one day we would have the occasion to use it. As the piles of information grew, so did our desire to make what we had seen readily available to anyone and everyone. Finally, after years in the making, we decided to 'set up shop'.

Our short term goal is to add cool and different products every few weeks to keep things fresh and new - curating an eclectic selection, for both indoors and out.  Our mid-term goal is to increase our focus on smaller, up-and-coming artists, craftsman and manufacturers from all over the world.  The long term goal is to add an exclusive LQ furniture and textile line into the mix.
We are very serious about supporting our customers as well as the people who make the products we represent.  By honoring and respecting the craftsman as well as the consumer, we feel we can serve both parties in a productive and inspiring way.  Our blog will be a lens for you to get a view of the 'behind the scenes' of what we do, where we go and who we work with.  Please check it out so you can see what goes on here!

In addition to our commitment to our customers and craftsman, we also strongly believe in supporting our community. From the first day our site goes live, a percentage of our profits will be donated to charity.  Specifics regarding which organizations we are affiliated with will be listed on our blog and updated regularly.

We expect this adventure will lead us in many new and unknown directions over the next few years.  Although we don't know exactly what lies ahead, we are very excited to find out.  This ride will take us all over the world on a hunt for art and furnishings and we love that it will allow us to connect with all types of people in all kinds of places.  Our plan is that in the process, everyone involved will have a really good time!

We hope you enjoy looking through what we've put together so far....
