Pre-construction design:

This service involves leading high-end design projects in collaboration with architects and/or general contractors. It involves coordinating items such as tiles, kitchens, appliances, plumbing fixtures, wood sidings, flooring and ceiling selections. In addition, it involves designing casework, recessed drapery tracks, and lighting/pendant placement. These are items that generally need forethought during the planning phases so that these key elements don’t appear as after-thoughts upon completion. It is critical to document such items early in the process so that general contractors and sub-contractors can plan accordingly.

Post-construction  design:

This service involves understanding a client’s lifestyle and planning spaces that can accommodate their unique needs, thus resulting in a truly bespoke home. Typical space planning includes presenting color proposals and furniture selections to scale in floor plans for items such as sofas, lounge chairs, dining tables/chairs, works of art, rugs, drapery and others. Midcentury Modern’s expertise in this area covers both indoor and outdoor needs.
