Our story started like many others.
We were young, in love, expecting our first child, and getting excited about designing our nursery. It was at this time that we began searching for the perfect crib, a safe and beautiful centerpiece that would define my nursery. But, try as we might, we couldn't find this special piece of furniture. It was 1995 and the choices were very limited. There were no Pottery Barn Kids or Restoration Hardware Babys. The idea of designer baby furniture had not been invented. So, we invented it. Stephen, my ridiculously handsome and talented husband, designed our first baby crib for our son, Sebastian. That was the beginning of Bratt Decor.
We haven't grown as quickly or become as notable as some of the others who have come after us, but we did what we set out to do. We had three goals when starting Bratt Decor. The first was to start a business that would afford me the opportunity to raise my children on my terms. And, Bratt Decor has given us that. The secondary goal was to create truly beautiful, safe, and accessible designer, luxury items for the nursery.
And, lastly, we sought to build a company where the people with whom we worked would be respected, valued, and given opportunity to grow and shine. A place where we would treat all of our customers with genuine care and respect. We wanted to create an atmosphere where the people were the most important element, realizing if we did that, the bottom line would take care of itself.
We have been tremendously blessed in this crazy Bratt life. Our two children are amazing, happy, well adjusted young men. Our marriage is a wonderful adventure. And, we still love getting up and coming to work, creating, and sharing our unique beauty with the world.
