We are thrilled to introduce this Month another friend of Ebury Trading: the energetic young talent that is Billy Cotton! . . .
Billy is a designer based in New York but is often in London and Europe: if anyone has their finger on the pulse of what is passe, hip or about to happen, it is him. We are especially glad to introduce Billy, not least, as he launched with his team, their new website last week; which is fresh, crisp and user friendly. . .
With many strings to his bow, Billy studied Russian History (something we share a passion in) at Hunter College then went on to take a degree at The Pratt Institute as well as travelling and working in various European Cities. While Billy was studying, his creative energy was focussed on up-cycling and recreating and designing furniture for private clients. This led to the creation of Custom Resource in 2004.
Whilst this really took off and was getting Billy noticed, he also found time to set up a separate home ware and tabletop collection which is showcased at Bergdorf Goodman, but is widely available in different outlets worldwide. Again, the youthful, intelligent and sophisticated, clean and simple designs have been a success. His lighting collection in particular has not only featured at the Milan Furniture Fair, but has featured prominently in Architectural Digest, The New York Times, World Of Interiors and many other publications.
Please take a moment to check out their website and be inspired!
