The Dining Library

Do you have a formal dining room? (formal as in a separate room with at least 3 walls, not as in stylistically formal)

Do you use it often enough for its intended purpose to justify dedicating the square footage it claims in your home? Ever wish you could use the space more effectively, but don’t want to sacrifice your dining furniture and the flexibility to occasionally host larger gatherings?  Read more

Rose Gold for Home

Good News: We’ve moved! And this great view of downtown Sarasota is from our new front door.

We apologize for any inconvenience and encourage contacting us by email if telephones are not yet cooperating.

More details and photos of the new space will be posted soon!
