Thank You, Thank You

No, this is not a post about the Oscars.  Instead, I hope you’ll indulge me while I toot our own horn just a bit.

Design Manifest has had the good fortune of receiving awesome local press lately!  We are always grateful when anyone features our work, but getting a little love in Philadelphia is extra special.  Just yesterday I rushed to the grocery store to pick up my copy of Philadelphia Magazine.  This month is their “Amazing Spaces” issue and features our Philadephia Modern Bohemian project.  I was standing there in the check out line grinning ear to ear just waiting for someone to ask me why I was so happy.  I would have non-nonchalantly pointed to the photo and said, “oh that’s my work.”  Alas, no one noticed or cared and I went home without bragging.  But that’s what the blog is for, right?

So here’s a quickie run down of where we’ve been featured…

The Philadelphia Inquirer included us in a great article about design trends.  That’s our Bachelor Pad dining room below.

Here is Philadelphia Magazine‘s feature I mentioned above…

AND one of our favorite Philadelphia furniture stores, Host Interiors, is featuring me in their designer spotlight.  You can read the little interview and see sources HERE.

naomi picksI’m super excited for Host to open their new flagship store in Ardmore this spring!

The fact that it’s only just March and so far this year, the two biggest media publications in Philly have featured our work just blows my mind.  We are VERY grateful.  And if anyone is new to us from these source… welcome neighbor!  I hope you’ll stick around.  We have quite a few NEW projects we plan to reveal in upcoming months.

We also have a select few design/build slots open for the spring.  If you are interested in renovating your kitchen, bath, or living spaces, please feel free to reach out naomi (at)  We are already filling our summer construction slots.  It’s not too early to get planning.
