How Beau Monde Got Started
Welcome to Beau Monde Studio! My name is Linda Rizzuto. I am the designer/owner of Beau Monde Studio.
With a background in fine furniture finishing and the decorative arts and a love of wood boxes, I have combined the two to bring you unique, original creations, beautifully hand finished and crafted.
I began my furniture work in New York City, learning and working my way up to supervising a "to the trade" finishing shop, i.e., work for designers and architects only. Following that I was self employed for several years doing diverse work that ran from faux marble walls, to antique paint finishes, and gilding heavily carved panels; from restoring antique leather bound books, to mending damages in various objects d'art, and, of course, furniture. Although life took me down different paths since those days, I have come back to the work for which I have a passion.
As a decorative artist and craftperson, I hold myself to the highest standards of quality. All work is done by hand, employing time honored fine finishing techniques with designs that have the freshness for today.
Thank you for visiting Beau Monde Studio, and Happy Shopping!
