Hal Eisen is a full-time actor and designer, equally at home on stage, TV and film or designing interiors, gardens, offices and special-event parties. He's designed for personal clients across the country and created events everywhere; from the pool at the old L.A. Athletic Club to the penthouse in the new Trump World Tower in New York.
Originally trained as an actor at Ryerson; this is where his love of design began. Every acting student had to design sets, as well as to furnish, prop and light them. These early lessons are still the basis for his present designs. He's one of the art directors on HGTVs Designer Guys series, which is currently in production for 26 episodes.
Meredith Heron has worked for numerous design firms across Canada and the US. She focuses on both commercial and residential design, specializing in color and faux finish techniques. In March 2004, Heron opened Red Heron Essentials Distillery Design Studio in the historic Distillery District in downtown Toronto, where she features her own custom-designed furniture as well as a wide variety of residential and commercial decor products.
