The love of Patina...
Hi! I'm Laurie Semerjian. I have always loved and appreciated the great design, colors, textures, and solid wood of furniture from the past. Lauren Originals restored, repurposed and hand painted pieces reflects my love with every brush stroke. I enjoy applying painted or stained finishes and restoration techniques to classic vintage pieces, giving them a new lease on life!
I have a BA Degree from Framingham State College, Art major with a minor in Graphic Design. Years ago, after working as a Graphic Designer, I began hand painting furniture for family and friends preferring the "hands-on" aspect of creativity. I have also completed courses in Faux Finishing at Rhode Island School of Design.
Custom Work Available at my Studio in Franklin, MA
