Natalie began her design career in 1987 working for MBNA, Wilmington, Delaware as an “in-house” designer for the Facility Planning and Design Department and advanced to AVP of Planning and Design. MBNA’s rapid growth and innovative ideas involving the work environment gave her the opportunity to work on a diverse range of projects, including daycare and fitness centers, restaurants and cafeterias, lobbies, board rooms, planning for over one million square feet of office spaces, corporate condominiums and private aircrafts. In 1994 she began her residential design career designing for top executives of MBNA America Bank. Her specialty was the design and renovation estate homes as well as secondary homes that brought her outside the USA. It was during this time that Natalie, in an effort to bring her passion for designing and creating furniture and accessories to life, nurtured relationships with artists and craftsmen all over the world based on their skills, commitment to quality and authenticity. She brings this talent to every project.
