About Us



Lawton and Mull met over 20 years ago at the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, where we  discovered we shared an obsession with beautiful things. We approach décor as the building of a compelling narrative in which furniture, art, and objects are the elements of great storytelling.


Lawton Mull assists in all aspects of building and living with a collection. We guide our clients in the acquisition of furniture, art and objects, and in their meaningful display.


We believe that beauty, especially when it has stood the test of time, sustains us—even, at times, exalts us—and that the hours spent in its pursuit and enjoyment are never wasted.
