The true test of an innovator is his ability to set trends, rather than to follow them. Trends in interior design, like fashion, range from pret-a-porter to haute couture. When creating an interior environment, Stephen Tomar meticulously measures his clients' needs to provide them with form-fitting, one-of-a-kind designs. In many respects, he is a couturier for the home. Tomar approaches each project with the precise detail of a personal tailor, but with the broad vision of a full-scale design house. His sensibilities are classic, timeless and hewn with good taste and sophistication. "Anyone can buy style," Tomar points out, "but what I create for my clients is longer lasting and ageless. A home's interior should fit the owner like a comfortable pair of shoes. It is too costly to let a room sit because you do not like the way it feels or fits."
Bringing Interiors to Life - First, there is Light. Then, there is Space. After that, it's the detail work that brings a room to life. For Stuart Lampert, its' the details that breathe life into his interiors. Everything from a room's window trimmings to its furnishings, fixtures and color palette are taken into thoughtful consideration as he creates the "look" and "feel" of a home. Working with an overall design scheme, most often developed in unison with his partner Stephen Tomar, Lampert is the partner responsible for selecting all finishes, including: textiles, wall coverings, furniture, fixtures and all the other niceties that bring a room to life. Lampert's design expertise is best illustrated through his use of colors, fabrics, and finishes. His projects have attracted a faithful following of celebrities and others who care deeply about their interior comforts. Clients have included Barbra Streisand, Johnny Carson, Valerie Bertinelli and Eddie Van Halen, offices and dressing room of Judge Judy and many other names of Beverly Hills, Bel Air and Hollywood fame.
As creative Interior Designers, we are editors, coordinators, and project managers with an awareness of budgetary management. Our focus is to understand our client’s visions, ideas, and needs in order to express them in good aesthetics and function.
Our approach is to treat interiors the same way an actor treats each role; individually rather than playing the same part each time. We work in modern, contemporary and traditional styles, incorporating authentic and honest elements. Good design should not become dated, and as time passes, we strive for our interiors to become classic. We like to update past works to maintain freshness and continuity.
We take pride in our detailing and planning of interior and architectural elements such as lighting, built-ins, space planning, finishes, furnishings, and backgrounds. Many of our completed assignments are designed and managed in conjunction with the client’s architect and contractor. We also will continue interior maintenance and up keep at client’s request.
