An Interview with Scott Falciglia of The Tailored Home.
What is a recent project you’ve worked on that reflects your philosophy of stretching the boundaries with color and era?
This (lead photo above) is a living room in Rye that is representative of our style. Our Hollywood Regency lounge chairs in blue leopard with crimson piping, our classic chesterfield in midnight velvet, high gloss tables, impossibly funky lamps and extra tall shear draperies help balance the room against the clients’ modern art.
I see your custom pieces are hand-made locally in Connecticut. Has that been pretty paramount for you when working with clients and designers?
Yes, our designs are built at our studio in Norwalk. There’s a certain novelty to seeing something you purchase being made. Some designers are calling us their one-stop shop!
What are some new pieces coming out this fall that you are excited to have in your showroom?
This fall we are introducing a sofa that we designed out of necessity for our difficult-to-furnish house.
What kind of advice can you give on transitioning your home from summer to fall? Does it go beyond the décor?
Often, redecorating coincides with a person feeling they need growth and change. A newly designed room or home is the stage on which that growth and change plays out. It’s fun and rewarding to be a part of that process.
Your company offers such a variety of services that allows the client to truly customize their home. How do you narrow down a client’s taste to make everything cohesive while still representing their personality?
Thank you! The editing process is, well, inelegant. Especially when it’s successful! There is no formula to editing success, but there is a mindset that helps: persistent, optimistic, dynamic. It’s often just rubbing two sticks together in different positions until you get a flame.
Where in Greenwich do you like to go after a long day of work?
When we stay in town its straight to Versaille to enjoy the magic hour alfresco and then La Fenice for some indulgence.
