Melissa Harris - Born in New Iberia, Louisiana, Melissa Harris has traveled extensively throughout the world with her family. She became interested in the restoration of furniture when she married her husband, Tom, who is a master finisher of furniture. Her love for antiques, coupled with a desire to repair and upholster them correctly, propelled her to educate herself in all aspects of furniture design.

     Harris started her upholstery and drapery workrooms in 1985, with hands-on experience. In both areas, creating original designs seems to come naturally to her. Always aware of her clients needs, Harris can design custom furniture, or using the clients’ own pieces, searche for unique textiles and carpets, thus creating unique, yet, highly livable rooms. Working with a traditional, modern or eclectic space poses no problem for her, as her main goal is to design a space which reflects the clients’ personality while maintaining a predetermined budget.

     Whether it is a new construction project, a remodeling project or updating a new space, Harris’ main objective is to have families delighted to live in the spaces she creates. Her extensive knowledge of lighting, flooring, window treatments, art and accessories makes this an enjoyable experience for all.
