RodneyHaynes, principal at Seward and Lake, has always believed that everyone deserves a beautiful and comfortable home. Started in 2007, Seward and Lake has blossomed into an award winning boutique design firm in Oakland, CA. We were thrilled when asked by McMullen to collaborate as curator for home decor and immediately agreed, not only because it afforded our firm a wonderful opportunity to work with the dynamic Sherri McMullen, but it also provided us the chance to help color the Oakland retail landscape.
Inspiration for the Objects collection
The home decor collection is inspired by the spirit and force of Sherri McMullen and her wonderful boutique. McMullen is known for curating and showcasing a cutting edge mix of emerging and established designers. In creating the home decor collection, I wanted to echo that same philosophy by purposefully mixing Barbara Barry and emerging designers such as Bolé Road and Neo Design. I’m ecstatic with the end result: a collection that feels very natural, sophisticated, and stylish.
