John Barnett's approach to design was born from a lifelong awareness and study of building forms and shapes defined by architecture. His passion to create, along with a natural gift for conceptual thinking and ability to articulate visions to paper, enabled John to establish his design practice. His skills have organically led him to pursue two design disciplines, which are oftentimes intertwined: residential client services and furniture design.

"A room can be so much more than four walls when we allow it… at the same time, over-decorating can clutter the senses and interrupt life's natural order.  Paint colors, texture and light are key factors in creating a canvas – a canvas in which select furniture pieces are invited to be part of the conversation."
