The trick to loving your job? Make a career out of what you love to do in your free time.
Case in Point: when Nate found himself with a spare hour between shooting his new show and calls with his design team in Chicago, his assistant Kelly found him gluing pompoms to a lampshade. Samuel & Sons pompom trim, to be exact. And in case you were wondering, Poppy was napping, otherwise no one would have been able to sit this still!
As #TeamNate is filled with design-obsessed people, it’s easy to understand how someone who pivots from designing homes to rooms to products all day can still want to spend their downtime creating even more.
As for the finished product? Here’s one of the newly-decorated shades in all its glory. Sophisticated, textured, and an excellent reminder that when you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.
