What goes into creating a bespoke interior? Many hand-crafted details and a thoughtful design process are key to a bespoke interior. At LiLu Interiors, we pride ourselves on creating interiors that are reflections of our client’s lifestyle. Not about trends but speaks to our clients on a soul level. That way their interior should always feel timeless. A key element is often a custom or bespoke solution that takes an interior next level.

In order to create these kinds of bespoke solutions, we need to have craftsmen and makers who can turn a design into reality. One such craftsman is Erik Wyckoff, a local carver, who practices wood carving with old-world style and care.

We want to introduce you to Erik because craftsmen like him a rare gem in today’s world and he should be working nation-wide. His skill is unparalleled

Old World Craftsmanship

Erik is an old-world craftsman in the traditional sense. He learned his trade from a European Master. Training in the traditional way as an apprentice. He is the epitome of the type of master craftsmen that are few and far between in today’s instant gratification world. Because his work is bespoke and hand-crafted lead times vary considerably but, in the end, you will enjoy the unique beauty of a bespoke detail created just for you. Creating  a bespoke interior requires The Key Ingredient we discussed on this blog.

Unlimited Options

Often used to create old world charm in wine cellars, Erik’s talents are only limited by the imagination of designers he is working with. I adore the Art Deco embellishment on these doors.

Think of these hand-carved details for fireplaces, doors and custom furnishings as well. The charm of the carving on this small chest guarantees it will be an heirloom.
