My Interieurs showroom is really a curated collection of artists, artisans, bench made furniture intermixed with contemporary pieces which encapsulates the essence of Interieurs' principal theme: "Modern Soulful Living"
I would like to introduce "Jason" an artist at heart, with a vision. We both share the same passion for bringing back the objects of our industrial past, a bygone era, that was once the greatest strength of America. I love to learn the harsh lessons of the past and my visit to Cleveland was as if I stepped back in time.
Jason invited me to visit his studio where he hand blows the shades for our glass pendants, floor lamps and vases. I was fascinated to watch him work, and it gave me a real appreciation of the skill and arduous efforts that go into every one of his creations.

I love rummaging through old warehouses, industrial junkyards and visiting Jason's warehouses filled with industrial machinery taken apart, backyard covered with discarded wheels, bases, got my creative mode going full force. From pieces of huge industrial machines, he would salvage various fittings and create pieces of furniture thought after by the most famous designers. Thom Filicia, Clodagh, Ralph Lauren, Jeffrey Bilhuber, Steven Gambrel... just to name a few of our customers who love to incorporate Jason's pieces in their design work.
Jason took me to an auction where he bids on this now obsolete equipment. He strips these machines apart, and would keep this wheel for instance which will become the base of a floor lamp, or wheels for a cocktail table. The remains of the machine itself - after Jason has stripped it of parts for his creations - will be sold by the pound to be turned into recycled steel.
