https://arigdesigngroup.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/Micheles-1st-job..m4v This movie/slideshow features me 1 during the early days of my first job as an interior designer at Ryan & Williams- “the office professionals”, the Buffalo NY designated Haworth dealer at the time. Fresh out of school, I knew I had a lot to learn and I was very shy. The ongoing joke was I did not speak a word that first year. But I was a good listener, worked hard and learned quickly. It wasn’t long before I was tasked with a 350-workstation space planning project. The initial space plan was produced by the architect who designed the […]

I think I have mentioned before that I love Paris! I have visited the city many times and dropped by the usual tourist destinations like the Louvre and the Musée d’Orsay. Once inside after waiting online, reality sets in… it would take days to see all that is offered. On our latest trip an effort was made to not let those precious few hours slip away….. waiting. We decided to walk, talk, eat, relax, walk some more, talk and eat again. We roamed the Paris streets, but this time included planned, liesurely stops for lunch and dinner at well researched […]
I received a book titled Hello, My Name is Paul Smith for Christmas and I could not put it down until I finished reading it from cover to cover.
