The owner of the company talks about her inspirations and beginnings in the industry below.
What do you love about your job?
I get to make a difference in the quality of life for individuals through small projects that make a big impact. I’ve recently been featured in an online magazine called Bedford + Bowery. The article explains how I was able to help the writer bring order back to her apartment.
Who or what inspired you to start your business?
In college, I studied installation art (a combination of sculpture and architecture) with a focus on the way spaces can evoke emotions. As a facilities manager for Google, Chanel, and Square, that was the part my job that I enjoyed the most. Again and again, I could see how different user groups would use the same spaces in different ways. Small adjustments make a big impact. I don't know of anyone else bringing that perspective to rental units in New York City. It's unique and there is a huge market for what I have to offer.
