When they began more than twenty years ago, the couple knocked on the doors of local interior designers with only a handful of designs. The Koessels credit those early relationships with spurring the innovation in their work. Today, their papers are in demand by interior designers from all over the world.  Koessel Studios remains a TO-THE-TRADE only source.
