Geordie Lishman – Metal Sculptures and Artwork Paul Lafrance Design Team - Brands We Trust

Geordie Lishman – Brands We Trust

Metal sculptures and artwork can be used in all sorts of styles, from contemporary to rustic designs to add intrigue and texture to your space. If you are looking for something outside of the generic options found in retail stores, Paul has loved working with, and commissioning pieces from Geordie Lishman.

Geordie Lishman is a metal sculptor, painter and teacher, based out of Ajax, Ontario. His work can be found all over Canada, in many different forms. He has been commissioned to construct pieces as small as a table-top ornament, and as large as a life-sized ‘Transformer’ constructed of full-sized cars. Not only is his work amazing, Lishman’s dedication to sustainability and the preservation of the environment inspires him to use almost exclusively recycled materials–most of his metal comes from scrapyards.

Paul has featured Geordie Lishman’s metal work in several of his jobs, both as accents and as the focal point of the design. Geordie Lishman has created one-of-a-kind privacy screens, fire grates and artwork for our projects, to name a few, and he never ceases to amaze us with his work. When choosing your finishes, there is simply nothing better than working with an artist to design and create something that is unique to your space and your style. Check out some of Geordie Lishman’s work on his website. If you would like a closer look, contact Lishman for the dates of his next art show.

SnapClip – Suspended Ceiling System Paul Lafrance Design Team - Brands We Trust

SnapClip System – Brands We Trust

When updating or finishing a space it is easy to overlook what’s above you. A discoloured or outdated ceiling can put a damper on any room, but refinishing it means taking time and money away from the aspects of the room you are most excited about. One of the best solutions Paul has found for this is the SnapClip System ceiling system.

SnapClip is a revolutionary new ceiling system that provides the ease and cost efficiency of a dropped ceiling, but with a clean modern style that resembles a coffered ceiling. SnapClip System uses a unique “snap & slide” clip system that suspends the ceiling 2.86 cm (1-1/8 in.) from joists or your existing ceiling. Available in maple or flat white finish, SnapClip’s attractive reversible ceiling tiles are easy to install and remove when necessary, giving you easy access for repairs or renovations.

Paul used the SnapClip System in his own home and highly recommends their products. So, if you are thinking of starting from the top and giving your space a clean and stylish ceiling, head on over to the SnapClip’s website and check out their gallery for inspiration and information.
