Inspired – Yabu-Pushelberg

Yabu Pushelberg has done work for Kate Spade N.Y.C..  Three of the four Kate Spade images include a tape installation by Rebecca Ward.
I  am constantly scanning the world for inspiration for my interiors. My goal is to create original spaces that respect the client’s needs and wishes but that are also unexpected! I studied retail design in Milan, Italy and I also teach retail design courses. So while my business designs mainly residential interiors, I’m am always in awe and inspired by hospitality design. {esp. hotels, restaurants, and retail}. 

George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg met in design school thirty years ago. The Toronto/N.Y.C. based design team has been creating dynamic, dramatic, luxurious interiors ever since. I hope you are inspired by the sculptural quality of their work as much as I am.

I teach a retail design class at Endicott College, it allows me to hang on to piece of my previous {clothing/fashion} related career. Plus, it’s great to get inspired by store + fashion design. A fitting example of fun + fashionable is Kate Spade’s latest 5th avenue store. The multi colored -stripes are so effective at moving your eye through the space.
