THE BEGINNING

"I've always liked making things. I would be inspired by pieces I would find at boutiques and always knew that I had the ability to make something similar if I tried. So I did! I wasn’t formally trained, it came naturally, and online tutorials were really helpful. After a recent move I decided to design and create all the missing decor pieces myself, from pendant lights to shelves to tables. I eventually came to make stools designed by Ben Uyeda out of concrete and quickly realized I could make anything out of this underrated material. I started experimenting using different types of molds and perfected my craft by trial and error. That's when I started getting orders from friends and how EM'SAY was born." - Nadia M'Seffar
