“The people who influence you are the people who believe in you” – Henry Drummond. Reflecting on the past ten years, when we first started making furniture, we think about how fortunate we are for those customers who believed in us then and who are still with us today. This past week we met up with Vancouver-based entrepreneurs and long-time customers Michael McNamara and Rien Sharma of Mint Interiors and Revamp Home Staging Co. and enjoyed dinner at The Bazaar by Jose Andres in Beverly Hills. It was nice to catch up on their travels, design projects and share stories about challenges we all face as business owners.

Ten years ago, Michael and Rien started Revamp, a home staging company that turns homes into showpieces, and helps real estate agents and homeowners to merchandise a property to its maximum potential. The end result is a maximized sale price. Revamp was so successful that Michael and Rien decided to open a retail store in Vancouver called Mint Interiors. The vision of Mint is to bring unique objects and beautiful furniture to Vancouver to help create homes that are extensions of individuality and act as an escape from the speed of modern life.

Michael and Rien are true designer-nomads, traveling to every corner of the globe in search of inspiration, beauty and ingenuity. Their design projects and store offerings are always fresh as they source furniture and objects from L.A., London, Paris, New York, Portugal, Stockholm, Italy and Germany. They feel one’s personality should reflect in the design of one’s home showcasing each and every personality and nothing should be spared in the pursuit of perfection.
