Our relationship is a collaboration based on trust—we exchange ideas and develop hand-sketched design concepts that bring to life what you’re thinking—or may have thought were not possible. We don’t settle for the common or mediocre. With every project we bring something refreshing and new to the table.


DAVID STIMMEL, Owner and Designer

Began in the business with other firms who were more interested in selling cabinets than they were in creating unique spaces.

David holds tight to the philosophy that a designer should not have a signature look because the finished project should be the client’s signature look.

David has and always will take a hands on, collaborative approach to the design and construction process to makes certain the highest possible standards of quality and unsurpassed beauty are matched time and time again.

For him, each project as a new opportunity that has infinite possibilities.
