From Order To Delivery
by Liza Laserow
Most of our clients are interior designers, very talented and extremely good at what they do. Sofie Hedlund at DANIEL ROMUALDEZ ARCHITECTS is one of them. We started working together on a project located in Greenwich, Connecticut end of last year. The house was build 1926 and was renovated ca 1,5 years ago. During the renovation all the original details were kept and it came out breath taking. Sofie was brought in on the later part of the project by her client to give the house the final touch and tie the design together. The client, who has a great interest and love for Swedish antiques, wanted to find a cabinet for her linens, a pair of buffets for her dining room and a large chandelier to hang over her dining room table. Together with Sofie we found a beautiful early 19th Century cabinet with glass doors and a large venetian, all glass, chandelier. A pair of Gustavian buffets in the size needed are very rare so we decided to go with reproductions painted in an antiqued finish.
Yesterday I went out to the clients house to make sure it all went well. Transporting a venetian chandelier across the Atlantic Ocean in a bit nerve wracking, BUT! It all went well and the pieces really tied the existing interior design together – A great mix of Old and New!
