INSTUDIO Design Director Samuel Fleming Lewis is one of the few people who continue to produce furniture drawings by hand. For nearly a decade Lewis has provided hand drafting for custom furniture designed by Jeffers Design Group.
When visiting the chic JDG interior design studio for a new project Lewis noticed a few changes on the 1035 Post Street façade. He unexpectedly walked into a hotbed of construction activity that would soon be CAVALIER by Jay Jeffers.
Returning to JDG a week later to deliver a drawing Lewis walked into a beautifully designed retail space that represented the exquisite design style that Jay Jeffers is known for. Luxurious contemporary & vintage furniture, accessories, artworks, candles, objet d’art, books, teas and one of a kind items for the home that were personally selected by Michael Purdy and Jay Jeffers were displayed in engaging arrangements.
Kingsley, Jeffers & Purdy’s Cavalier King Charles Spaniel acted as the official greeter at the door (Kingsley has a sofa named after him). Jeffers was available to give Samuel Fleming Lewis and Lynne Gillan a personal preview tour of CAVALIER. The INSTUDIO Design Directors will be returning to CAVALIER not only as a new resource for their design clients but for some personal shopping as well.
