“When I approach a project, I think function first, then form. I make a point to get to know each client-their likes/dislikes, their hobbies/interests, how they relax, how they entertain, etc. I love to combine quality furnishings with interesting one-of-a-kind finds that match their personality in order to create an noteworthy space full of individual style.”
Prior to launching Sidney Wagner Interiors (formerly known as Eclectic) in 2006, Sidney worked for a well-established interior design firm in Charleston, South Carolina. Over the past twelve years, SWI has evolved into a full-service design firm specializing in custom residential design projects.
