Governors Mansion

Posted on March 19, 2010

Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s mansion redesign was a celebration of her energetic, exuberant personality. Governor Michelle requested native art and color-rich fabrics to reflect the vibrant vitality of her constituents and David delivered.

The den’s coffee table was custom-made in David’s workshop; the sofas were repurposed and recovered. In the living room lay an authentic Navajo rug. A black-and-white chair story borders her conference room—a decision she adored.

David relished his time with Governor Michelle; their close collaboration truly set her home apart.


Governor Bill Richardson requested a redesign that aligned with his traditional tastes. Together, he and David cultivated a classic aesthetic through subdued tones, heavy fabrics, and fine antiques.

Hand-crafted headboards and an inviting fireplace grace the guest room. The dining room drapes were completely custom-made.
