Thomas E. Lamb Design & Development, Inc. offers whole-house, custom interior design services as an add-on to the residential or commercial design and development process. We also offer interior design services for clients desiring a whole-house re-design for their current home. Every room is thoughtfully crafted so that all aspects of the interior harmonize with the architecture of the home and the client’s personal taste. Tom Lamb works directly on every interior design project, bringing the same commitment to quality and attention to detail he brings to designing custom homes.
Our design process begins with a meeting to review and gain an understanding of your style, vision and needs. We review different styles together to ascertain your preferences and assemble an overall character and feel that best suits your aesthetic, taking into account what harmonizes with the home’s architecture. Through an interactive process, we assemble a room-by-room book detailing floor plans and furniture arrangements, as well as all other elements integral to the design, which can include:
- Custom selection of furniture and upholstery
- Lighting design and fixture specification
- Paint and fabric selection
- Floor covering selection
- Window treatment design
- Original collectible art and accessory consultation, etc.
Our clients can be involved in the shopping and selection process, or our dedicated team can handle all the details involving purchase and installation of the rooms. Often, our clients choose from 3-5 pre-selected examples of each design element to be placed in the room.
Our longstanding relationships with vendors and quality sub-contractors save you time and money and our expertise and involvement throughout the process help you define the project scope and bring your vision to life. We pride ourselves on our transparent approach. Clients pay for all goods and services directly, taking advantage of our trade discounts, and paying our fee separately, so our clients always know the exact cost of the items they’re buying.
Our design philosophy is one of harmony of elements. All aspects of a home, setting, architecture and interior design, should blend cohesively and harmoniously. A beautiful living environment can be planned to the last detail, but a great home interior is created over time. We appreciate the significance of personal elements, like objects gathered from your travels, or antiques collected over generations, which bring a sense of depth, warmth and intimacy into your living environment.
