This underlying interior design theme is rooted in local luxury. The space features the amazing work of local talent, such as the lamps and coffee table by Tom Corbin. A wood console table and end table from Essential Elements by Renee Grissom provide substance. As the art and background, Porter Teleo would do a custom colored version of their amazing hand-painted wallpaper “Tangled.” ~ Alan Karlin

“Kansas City is home to one of the world’s premier bronze sculptors in native son Tom Corbin. And while some of his jaw-dropping larger pieces may fall quote firmly outside the category of “little” luxuries, this lovely miniature piece, Girl Waiting, is both charming and surprisingly affordable—just the thing to grace any home.”
