Arielle comes from a family of design: her great-grandfather, Eman Masin opened Masin’s Furniture during the 1930s which later grew into one of the finest furniture stores in the Seattle area. Her grandfather was an illustrator for Disney in its early days and her mother is a painter. Having grown up around art, Arielle deepened her knowledge by earning a BA in art history from the University of Washington. After college, Arielle moved to Tampa, FL where she began work in the residential design world at Oxford Design. She continued to hone her skills after she moved back to Seattle, when she took a position with Bristal Design Group and built on her practice with contract interiors. Taking cues from both national and international travel, Arielle continues to bring her experience with residential design into the contract world to build spaces that are comfortable, purposeful and sophisticated.
Cora is a Seattle native who grew up experimenting with principles of design from an early age. Through her practice of applied arts, Cora recognized the impact interiors have on how people experience space, leading her to Washington State University where she graduated with a B.A. in Interior Design. Shortly after, Cora was offered a position at Bristal Design Group where she explored an aesthetic rooted in materiality while building skills of specification, furniture design, and project management. Cora is passionate about creative spaces that are defined by grand vision and devoted details to achieve a client’s goals.
