What the Flock?

  • Posted on March 28, 2018

Make a visit to the Judith Liegeois Designs showroom and you’ll run into sheep.  White sheep, black sheep, big sheep, small sheep.  They’re inside standing guard next to an Andree Putman sofa or working to hold a tray of porcelain ceramic flowers.  Out in the courtyard, they are scattered throughout the patio and shrubbery.

In fact, they’ve become a signature design element of JLD.

We have a theory that they’re here because they remind Judy of her home.  She originates from New Zealand where sheep are part of the landscape.  It’s just a theory that has neither been confirmed nor denied by Judy, but that’s our story and we’re sticking to it!

You will not, however, ever find the sheep huddled together.  They won’t be blindly following a leader or herded together, indistinguishable from one another.

And that’s another JLD signature design element, perhaps the most important – individuality.   Each design project is authentic to the client and to the space.  We believe that our clients’ homes should reflect their unique personal preferences.

Honoring the client’s own personality and not looking to imitate someone else’s home or decor.

Yes, there are sheep at JLD and we love our flock, but each one stands independently on its own.  Beautifully unique and confident in its own style.
