Todd is a 3rd generation antiques and home furnishings dealer with a commitment to American artisans. A native of North Carolina, Todd grew up working the High Point market showrooms in high school and later working under the tutelage of his grandmother’s design practice. His great grandfather was a co-founder of Hawkins Israel Design in Mountain Brook, AL. The firm furnished and decorated the fine homes of Mountain Brook, outside of Birmingham, when the city was booming with iron and steel industries. Todd’s roots in the antiques and interior design trade date back to the early 1900s.
Todd is a graduate of The New York School of Interior Design and now resides in Asheville, North Carolina with his two insufferable dogs. Todd’s “buy once, buy right” motto is reflected in both his store and his interior design consultancy. He eschews cheap imports and trendy furniture retailers in favor of timeless antiques and contemporary accents. Todd brings a sophisticated out-of-the-box mindset to every room he curates. He thrives on projects that push him to his creative edge and engage him in an active dialogue with clients—where no project is too big or small.
