We call our design philosophy “a well-traveled aesthetic” or “disciplined eclecticism.”
It not only reflects our personal biographies having lived in Asia, Africa, and Europe, but we believe that all truly interesting houses are a harmonious fusion of various times and places. Designs must be thoughtfully composed, but should not look as if they came straight off a showroom floor.
The Duncan’s have been working in both interiors and industrial design for the last fifteen years. James and Miriam have developed over 250 designs sold to the trade around the world.
