About Us

Rick Shaver and Lee Melahn are the principal designers behind Pleasant Living, LLC, a design firm concentrating on interior design and custom furniture design for over a quarter of a century in the demanding world of New York City. Since inception, their experience has taken them beyond the city to include projects from coast to coast in the continental United States. Pleasant Living's services range from complete interior architectural installations to decorating projects under an overarching philosophy that completed designs must reflect the lifestyle and needs of their clients, going well beyond a formulaic approach. For Rick and Lee, it has always been their objective to design beautiful spaces, with the belief that the highest measure of good design is how well it works for the client. In addition to their interior design work, the design and production of Shaver/Melahn’s furniture is approached with the same spirit. Attention to detail and impeccable craftsmanship are the focus while using indigenous materials handcrafted in America serve as the hallmark of their collections and custom-made pieces. Rick and Lee's work has been seen in numerous international and national publications including House Beautiful, Veranda, Ellle Decor, and The New York Times! We have also been nominated and showcased inside the Kips Bay Decorator Show House, in addition to other charitable venues including: DIFFA, Dining by Design, and The Bailey Hart House Annual Fundraiser. Please send a message or call today to begin the process of reimagining your space!
