After first majoring in art with a brief detour to law school where she earned a double major in business and law, Ms. Burki decided to return to art and then followed her passion into design.
She established her business in Southport, CT in 2002 and has quickly garnered an impeccable local presence and reputation.

The result is a perfect mix of elegant furniture pieces and casual luxe accessories, infused with a contemporary spirit. "I've always admired the attention to detail in traditional furniture making.
I try to translate these techniques into a new category that is antique in design and silhouette and contemporary in spirit but will be sure to remain a classic," says Ms. Burki.
Each furniture item is handmade and carefully crafted utilizing traditional methods of construction. The oversized Gold Patina Birdcage Chandelier is handmade in France with eight lights that majestically lights up a room with style.
