MEET OUR FOUNDER, LISA FAULKNER
The Beautiful Bed Company by Sweet Elle Handmade Furniture was founded out of a love for all things home. “We spend a third of our life in bed, so let's make every bedroom in America a beautiful sanctuary; a place that gives you a big warm hug at the end of a busy day; a room that provides peace and respite from our busy lifestyles.” Lisa is the Chief Creative behind The Beautiful Bed Company, and has been passionate about design since she was a teenager. Born and raised in the United Kingdom, her family has been making English Chesterfield Sofas for more than 30 years, which fueled her appreciation for the art and heritage of traditional furniture making.
Lisa believes that offering custom bedroom furniture enables the customer to create a space that uniquely fits their own individual taste. As a shareholder of Bradshaw Kirchofer, a traditional furniture company established in 1994, Lisa honed her furniture trade skills, finding talented craftsmen in the Los Angeles area to create the designs she envisioned. By staying local, she is able to keep The Beautiful Bed Company products made in the USA and drop by daily to check on the quality as your items are being made to order.
Textile design and color are Lisa's obsessions. As an accomplished photographer, her talent has enabled her to travel extensively throughout Europe, Asia, and South America. She lives and works in LA, has two children, and a great sense of humor.
