Gardenhouse & Designer Custom Source Collaborate: A new Gardenhouse Settee is Born!
The best works of art and design spring out of the passion to create where everyone wins. This is the wonderful experience I had working with Designer Custom Source. DCS is a centralized online resource that demystifies the production process for designers, providing the workroom resources necessary for custom product design.
“Designer Custom Source (DCS) is a resource that we created as a result of observing a need in the design community. We discovered there was an absence of workrooms that provided quality, custom soft-goods coupled with the support of online technology.” – Melinda Merijanian, Product Development Director of DCS
I had the sincere pleasure of working with Anita Winter, Art & Media Director, and Melinda Merijanian, Product Development Director of DCS.

I’ve worked with Anita before, and was excited when DCS approached me with this new opportunity. I was to design a Gardenhouse inspired settee with their resources, which DSC would produce and feature alongside my nature inspired wallcoverings, GardenWalls, on their site. Loved working with Anita and Melinda – they were so accommodating and helpful. It became a fun treasure hunt going through the outdoor fabrics on the DCS site. I sifted through the fabrics, searching for which materials would lend itself to create the outdoor settee. I happened to choose all Sunbrella fabrics, and was happily surprised when I received the cushions and pillows. I was so impressed by the wonderful workmanship and quality, I photographed our new settee with our GardenWalls, Japanese Spring the same day it arrived. The turquoise accents on the settee and the wallcovering blended so well together, it became a match made in heaven. You can read the excellent piece they wrote on GardenWalls and Gardenhouse on their blog here.

I met with so many great people that came to the booth, as well as various galleries which were exhibiting at the fair. It was very exciting to meet so many people from so many walks of life and so many countries. Art had brought all this people together from around the world. The Scope pavilion was right on the beach this year in South Beach. It was awesome to have the view of the ocean right there in front of you as you walk along viewing all the art. I would take breaks and just sit outside with the ocean in front of me. What a great combination having the art inside and also outside in front of nature’s art.
