Exceptional entrances evoke impressive first impressions.  whether you showcase a large tapestry on the wall, display a gallery of your art collection, feature a grand sculpture as a centrepiece, or a large rug on the floor, these elements will add intimacy to a large space.

    I have just discovered your website. It is full of stuff I am interested in. The only problem is the way you format/set up your pics to be in a click-by-click “gallery”, it is far too tedious and un-user friendly. Can you please put the pics in “scroll down” format instead?
