We call our design philosophy “a well traveled aesthetic” or “disciplined eclecticism.” It not only reflects our personal biographies having lived in asia, africa, and europe, but we believe that all truly interesting houses are a harmonious fusion of various times and places. designs must be thoughtfully composed, but should not look as if they came straight off a showroom floor. Our line has been described as "schizophrenic chic.” We make furniture and objects that are exciting, but do not follow a single design direction. We make what we like and we like a variety of styles, and believe that one could furnish an entire project with our designs and it would not be obvious that the objects came from a single source.www.jamesstuartduncan.com
