J+G Design Styles a “Good Luck” Party in Philly

Did someone say party? We always love a good party, especially when it is themed!

A few months back we helped one of our favorite clients plan a Friday the 13th Good Luck Bash! Highlights included chain mail, tarot card reader, handwriting analysis, voodoo dolls, karma-tinis, lotto ticket party favors, and much much more!

The party took place in the client’s home so we wanted guests to feel comfortable and cozy.  We achieved this by incorporating the clients own pieces like the vases, linens, and china to add that personal touch.  We were thrilled with the end result!

Thank you to the lovely and talented Nicol Floral Design who exceeded our expectations!

J+G Visits DLV Designs


Maggie and Marc, the dynamic power duo behind DLV Designs, invited us to tour their beautiful showroom/workshop in Red Hook. Upon arrival, you might think you made a wrong turn, but then the industrial door gives way to a hidden jewel.
Tucked away in an old factory building on Brooklyn’s waterfront, DLV’s space is part showroom and part artist’s studio. Seeing the craftsmanship that goes into each piece is so refreshing.  In this day and age it is not often that you see such dedication to one’s craft.
While versed in various traditional techniques such as lacquer, shagreen, and plating, the most interesting process to witness is the Coquille d’oeuf, or cracked egg shell mosaic. Marc’s assistant, Paige, walked us through the delicate and painstaking process where she artfully breaks and places chicken eggshells into the glue covered surface. The final outcome is well worth it!
Marc launched DLV in 2012 after working under the direction of Bill Sofield, where he gained experience in both custom work and mass market production. An expert welder himself, Marc has cultivated a unique “rugged meets refined” point of view for DLV and is involved in every step of the process. He recently debuted a hardware collection that is so stunning we’re trying to create reasons to use it!
Big thank you to the DLV team- visiting the studio was such a treat. We cannot wait to see what DLV creates next!
