Immediately after the architectural team clears out, 2B1B takes over. The firm is adept at “hard design” (flooring, lighting, trims, and hardware) as well as “soft design” (window treatments, furniture, accessories, bedding, and more). These days, Carmela Sanchez and crew do a lot of projects with clients who want to redesign their homes using items they already own.
