Event that inspired you to be a designer: Brian: “I almost broke my back when I was a snowboarder and I thought it might be a good idea to shelve my jock side and explore my creative side.” Jamie: “When I saw the moving furniture with crystal pulleys in Auntie Mame, I knew I wanted to be either a diva or a designer. I opted for the latter. I also hung out a lot in my grandfather’s carpentry workshop as a kid. Our Panca (above) is named after a bench I used to sit on in his shop. Brian actually designed the piece, but it looks exactly like my grandfather's bench. Totally serendipitous.”
