Shortly after, he began working with Mark Zeff and gained valuable experience within the international design community. In 1996, he founded his design studio, D’Apostrophe Design, Inc., in 1996, and then went on to launch D’Apostrophe, LLC, the exclusive BULO showroom in the east of the USA, in 1999. Over a decade later the showroom has grown into a resource for international and design-forward brands, yet still remains true to its Belgian roots.

Seconding ch_100 on my love of Houzz and especially Becky articles!!! For mcgilla... this is our answer for the back of an expensive (and pleasing) cabinet for component audio visual pieces. Not metal but an open slat we used to replace the solid back of the cabinet. Had heat issues... have been very pleased with this approach.
