Q: How does the design process work?
A: Our design process is truly unique. Each tent commission is an opportunity to create something completely bespoke and tailor-made to suit our clients' exacting design criteria. Share any inspirational detail with us and the creative process can begin to unfold around that object...whether it is a swatch of fabric with a certain beguiling pattern, a graphic motif on paper or even the textural detail in an antique bas-relief carving. We can use any visual cue to begin our exploration of what can inspire and inform the design of your custom tent. In our process, little sketches abound to allow for better visualization of the design in its conceptual phase. Through our illustrations and sketches, we present an array of design options and directions from which you may choose. Ours is a process that embraces the concept of customization in the full sense of the word. We welcome thoughts and feedback from our clients in forming these designs, as this results in the most fulfilling and collaborative creative process.
