CHARTREUSE has been officially open since July of 2011.  I, however, have been doing “this” forever!  The changes that have taken place over these past few months have all been positive and fulfilling.  I thank God throughout the day…. each and every day!

I’ve been blessed with vision, creativity and many other artistic abilities.  I used to be afraid or embarrassed to say that.  It could easily be taken as arrogant or I could be judged by others.  And then it occurred to me……. “who cares”! There’s always going to be a  few competitors that think they’re better and or they can do it better or try to do what I do better (isn’t copying a form of flattery?)…….   Which by the way, I’m not flattered!  It’s quite annoying to say the least!  (get your own gig)

I am always inspired by other vendors, artist and other creative people…….. BUT I know in my heart that I create from my heart! So with that said………. and knowing what I’m about to announce will be met with the possibility of competitive BS…… here it goes!

It’s time to take the next step!  My staff, my team and I are growing.  We now have the ability to do a lot of the things I’ve dreamed about for CHARTREUSE.  We’ve been so fortunate to have such a great community response.  We’ve been able to not only sell some pretty cool pieces, but I’ve been commissioned to do a ton of custom work…. along with the artists I represent.  However….. there’s been a missing link…… until now! (actually there are a few missing links that I’m working on…… day at a time……)

(drum roll)………………… WE NOW HAVE AN “IN HOUSE” UPHOLSTERER!!!!!!!  FINALLY!  I’ve been searching for months and my dreams for CHARTREUSE are slowly coming true!

I dream about everything in the name of design.  My obsessions keep me awake at night and make me hit the floor running in the morning.  I have been designing upholstered pieces……… along with everything else….. for what seems a lifetime.  I have so many unique ideas…. ( but I’m not an upholsterer)…… and mixed with the ideas of this “person” and her talents…. WE ARE GONNA BRING IT!  She’s not good though……….. she’s awesome!  This goes directly back to my earlier article where I talk about surrounding yourself with other people who can help get it done.  You can’t do it all………… even though you think or dream you can!

We will not only be able to custom create and personalize your pieces that need re-upholstering………. but we are currently working on some killer pieces that you will not find anywhere else!  (so exciting)

Stay in touch, because this is only the beginning of many more exciting services to be available exclusively at CHARTREUSE!




Our business was built on the love and appreciation for all things created beautifully. The romantic wanderlust; that need to discover a new artist... uncover one more find that you dream about. It drives us. It gratifies us. We want to share it. We have to share it. It's too good to keep to ourselves.
