About Tara Shaw Maison:
Tara Shaw describes Tara Shaw Maison as "a gumbo," saying it's her own mix of Swedish, Italian, French, and Belgian styles. Inspired by one-of-a-kind antiques she found in Europe, Shaw mimicked the styles and finishes and created pieces that could be appreciated by a wider audience. Shaw also attributes the Maison style to living in New Orleans. It was there that she "fell in love with the patina of old wood," and in the reinvention of the city after Katrina, she witnessed the "beautiful combinations of old and new, historic buildings and contemporary structures, timeless yet current" that continue to inspire her.
