Our firm’s projects are located across the US and in Canada. StudioTrimble has been the recipient of numerous design and lifestyle awards over the years.
Our studio provides fully detailed design drawings using Auto Cad (2-D drawings), Revit (3-D drawings) and Google Sketch-Up (for rendering our 3-D drawings.) Our presentation drawings help our clients see exactly what they are getting from our rendered 3-D drawings that are live where we can walk you around the exterior, fly over like a bird and tour the interior spaces.
Based in Blue Ridge, GA since 2002, StudioTrimble has one of the largest design libraries and furniture dealerships containing some of the latest materials in the design and construction business. Our goal is to provide unique designer quality resources to our client’s. The studio represents hundreds of manufacturers of lighting, furniture, rugs, artwork, linens, accessories, finishes, hardware and much more. Our network across the US and Canada allows us to ship easily to any destination.
In 2004, our e-commerce store “The New Rustic” was born to provide our collection of unique home furnishings to the public. This came as a suggestion of one of our clients to “put our library on line so she could shop from her home in Florida.” Originally a client only site, we opened the site to the public and now showcase some of the top eclectic furnishings for the latest residential styles.
In 2017 the studio launched Blind & Shutter Worx headed by Cindy’s son Will Reed who provides a huge selection of window blinds, shades, shutters and solar treatments. He is a turn key company handling the selections, design and installations including motorized, interior and exterior solutions.

Each client brings a unique blend of personal needs, tastes and lifestyle for our team to analyze. It is each project’s individual elements that lead and shape our design direction for each client. No two clients are the same therefore no two StudioTrimble designs are the same. We utilize our combined years of experience, our Studio’s depth of resources with our team’s creativity to produce designs that speak directly about each individual client’s needs, lifestyle and design direction. Our goal is that in the end, when client’s move in they feel their home or business is “all about them.” Most of our residential clients have children, grandchildren, dogs or other pets. These are very important “family” members that are included in the design process.
