Designer Highlight: Spruce Design Stylizes the Upper East Side

We are so excited to feature Spruce Design as our designer highlight of the month!

Spruce Designs combines style and function to set you up for success. Founded by Katie Davis, she believes that everyone deserves to have a home they are proud to show off, and she helps them bring their vision to life. 

Check out the images below for Spruce Designs' recent projects featuring FTS collections.


This Teak Root Bench was a show stopper in this Upper East Side apartment. When we saw this gorgeous bay window overlooking the water, we just knew something special needed to complete this space. 

When designing apartments, it's important that we use multi-functional pieces that will last a lifetime. We love that this bench can seat people at the dining table - but can also pull out to face the living room to provide extra seats for a party or movie night. Bonus points that it's such a conversational piece - perfect for hosting guests! 

What sets Spruce apart is our unique ability to utilize both organization and design to create functional spaces for our residential clients. Being a New Yorker means you have to get creative with your square footage in order to meet your everyday needs, which can make it tricky to keep your home looking magazine-worthy! Most New Yorkers don't have the basements, attics, playrooms, extra closets, hallways, foyers, and laundry rooms that Suburban residents have.. but that doesn't mean they should have to sacrifice aesthetic! A perfect example is this disguised litter box behind the bench. The top flips open to clean, and the left side is a ramp entrance for the kitty - but this way it doesn't have to be an eyesore behind the beautiful root bench


In addition to residential spaces, we also design commercial offices and we love how customizable the pieces are at From the Source. Their ability to hand pick slabs, add power sources, and customize size and shapes allows us to take corporate spaces from sterile and bland to interesting and inviting! 

This completely custom conference table and the custom nesting tables bring such warmth and character to this office located in Rockefeller Plaza, and our clients love that they are one-of-a-kind.

For more information regarding custom projects or requests please contact sales@ftsny.com.


Katie Davis,
Founder of Spruce Designs
If you're like me, your days are fast-paced, relentless, and the to-do list truly never ends... which makes having a home that comforts and recharges you so important. Whether it's winding down after a long day, enjoying your coffee first thing in the morning, or hosting family and friends on the weekends - your home should bring you peace and comfort. I believe everyone deserves to have a home they're proud to show off, but I know not everyone has the time to make that happen. 

I started my interior design + organization business because I've always had a passion for making people feel at home. My goal is to bring luxury design services to any client - no matter their style or budget.

Creating the Perfect Work From Home Office featuring Jennifer Callahan

Over the past year, we have all learned that working from home without a designated work station space, can leave you feeling drained and uninspired. Which is why we decided to assist Jennifer Callahan of Simply Spaced in creating her own personalized and minimal WFH setup.
Featuring our Teak wood Ciao + Reef Desk with Drawer Space, a natural leather Grasshopper dining chair, along with some matching Teak wood Ciao shelves, and along her designer, Dany of Spatial Solutions, we were able to create a one of a kind space that fit her LA home studio perfectly. 
"Dany suggested From the Source, known for their sustainably sourced hardwood furniture. I wanted the desk to be high quality, eco-friendly, and well-made and was happy to find out that they create small-batch, handcrafted furniture with reclaimed materials." - Jennifer Callahan

Be sure to check out Jennifer's full article My Minimal WFH Desk Setup on her lifestyle blog, Love Lulu.
From the Source features ready made desks, as well as live-edge hardwood tops and bases so you can design your own!  Download our Build Your Own Desk guide for more information.
