Studio Jesse James is one great company. They are incredibly responsive and they listened closely to what we had to say so that they could choose colors, finishes, and fixtures that were in accordance with our tastes...We couldn't have been more pleased"

Highly recommend this shop! James worked with me to create custom floating shelves for our coffee nook. I wanted something more unique and higher quality - and these were perfect! Installation was also very straight forward with the included hardware. I'm extremely pleased.

Studio Jesse James never disappoints! Their shipping method is the BEST I've ever seen on Etsy and their plants are always, not only gorgeous and larger than I expect, but come without even a leaf damaged. I have ordered multiple times LOVE THEIR plants. Wish they had more!!

I have worked with Jesse on several projects since 2012 and she has been incredible to say the least. Very knowledgeable in all elements of the job from schematic design all the way through construction to the finish line. I loved that she brought a creative yet financially savvy approach to help us maximize our budget. Also helped us design smarter by having deep understanding of how the city works. Great project manager and stayed on top of all the different consultants, engineers, etc. at all times. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Jesse was instrumental in the architecture and design of our remodel. She is highly professional and knowledgable. She is very efficient and knows how to get the "job done". From every aspect of the project starting with initial architectural blueprints and CAD files, down to the minutest details of flooring, tile, fixtures, fittings, color schemes and furniture choices, Jesse was one of the main leads on our team. She was able to help negotiate with the contractor and was instrumental in helping us secure a refund after our ceilings weren't able to be as high as initially planned

I will be purchasing from Studio Jesse James again!! Thank you so much!

Ordered three custom shelves from James and couldn't be any happier. I sent James custom measurements for 2 corner shelves and 1 long 10" deep shelf. He worked with me on mounting options as wella s fit/finish. His communication was great and the craftsmanship is top notch! Looking forward to proudly using his product in my home for a long time. Thanks James.

Adam

Amazing! Best seller ever. Contacted by the seller to offer a better plant. Arrived in excellent condition and expertly wrapped. I would think seller is selling his love more than his business. Very happy, I am completely satisfied and love adding this heart plant to my plant family. Thank you so much I will be back for sure.

The Floating Shelf set....gorgeous and easy to install. Love the modern Scandie look.

Jenn Dice

The shelves are even more beautiful in person. They are heavy, solid, and of even higher quality than i expected. We got 2 floating shelves and a 5 foot long alcove shelf. They look amazing in our newly renovated kitchen! And no issues installing at all. Directions were great. Highly recommend!!

He holds an architecture license in both Kentucky and New York. James brings a pencil-to-paper, hands-on approach to making, with a belief that limiting ones palette often heightens design.  This philosophy underscores the use of American-made materials to create unique and functional pieces. A respect for materials, their use and connections, is the foundation of his approach. If ever you need to find him, just check the wood shop.  A former member of the Los Angeles Art Association, he has exhibited art in numerous group shows in Los Angeles, Louisville, and Lexington.
