Having been raised in California's Newport Beach and Oahu's North Shore, Nate Ricketts has always felt an affinity for the treasures of nature. He could frequently be found drawing and painting coastal subjects from a young age, and received much adulation from his art instructors throughout his prep and collegiate years. His desire to construct beautiful environments drew Nate to the field of interior design. He was fortunate to begin his career under the guidance of the amazingly talented Dan Marty, of Dan Marty Design in West Hollywood.
Nate fell in love with the Vintage Victorian seashell mirrors, boxes, and other seashell treasures that Dan Marty would import from Europe. Feeling compelled to express and share the wonder and joy these antique collectibles brought to him, Nate began creating his own unique pieces with his favorite gems from the sea. His work was soon appreciated by Dan Marty and many others who were charmed by Nate's quality of design and whimsical style.
Nate now lives in San Francisco where he and his small design team work tirelessly to create exciting, innovative, and fun accessories for the personalized home. To own one of Nate's creations is to own a genuinely unique work of art. "It is the wonders of nature that make these furnishings truly resonate with something inside each of us," claims Nate. "I simply bring all these elements together to create a functioning piece of art to enchant your home environment."
