Eric Small has been creating beautiful, high quality and highly functional kitchens for homeowners, developers and businesses all around the globe for over 25 years instinctively knowing how to marry his two passions, art and good design. The root of Eric’s design process is in the arts, having received his bachelor’s degree in art with a concentration in painting. While in college Eric was hired by a local kitchen company to hand draw kitchens and a new passion emerged. Learning that design, kitchen design, can and should be an art form he was eager to see how he could catapult his art into a new industry. This passion has taken him all over the world, including Chicago, New York City and Germany with the majority of his career working for the world’s oldest cabinet maker and a leader and innovator in luxury kitchens. Eric has had the privilege along the way to work with some of the most renowned designers including Jorge Pensi and Porsche Design Studio and even led the kitchen cabinet industry’s first luxury laboratory project for Novartis.
