“STRIKE fireplaces have a bespoke air that was immediately appealing to ANN SACKS. The fireplaces are not easy to fabricate or duplicate, and the finishes are divine.  The forms engage the eye with surfaces that are tactile to the hand and organically rich in detail.  When paired with ANN SACKS tile or stone, customers can literally create their own custom wallscape in any room.”  

-DeeDee Gundberg, Chief Designer – ANN SACKS




Elegant with tremendous visual appeal, Alessio’s gentle fluting and soft, rounded edges has an understated complexity and textural appeal that is compelling and engaging.  


Drawing its cues from Art Deco design, Augusto reflects the simple beauty of repetitive form, the timeless columned design meeting at the corners to create a four-leaf clover motif. 


An intimate, stylish silhouette, Bella’s inverted egg design creates a cocooning effect, its rippled interior lending a subtle, decorative element to complement traditional and modern interiors.


Like a fine suit, Enzo takes a couture approach to its design with tailored lines and framed, stepped details making it a sophisticated choice for any setting.    


An illusionary form that evokes a decidedly contemporary edge with a reverse lay-up of left/right facing squares, Gemma was inspired by the architectural symmetry and scale of 19th century modern farmhouse multi-paned windows. 


A modern take on timeless 18th style, Stella is based upon an arched doorway topped by a classic capital that Dorsey came upon during a walking trip through the famed city of Seina, Italy.     




Chad Dorsey creates refined interiors that balance tailored style with the spirit of modern living.  Trained as an architect, his approach to every space is characterized by the relationship by architecture where proportion, light, and scale are as essential as taste and lifestyle.  His aesthetic is described as “relaxed luxury” which is defined by a quiet palette, custom furnishings with handcrafted details, meaningful objects, and a true sense of the people who live there.  He believes furnishings should be impactful without being overwhelming, and rooms should flow and transition seamlessly. 

Creator of STRIKE, the original bespoke collection of hand carved fireplaces, launched in 2020.  His eponymous design studio is based in Dallas with an outpost in Los Angeles and offers a full range of design services.
