Olga Schulz, Principal Designer at Shape of Wicker Custom Wicker Furniture Naples, Florida

Olga was a long standing trainer and choreographer serving the youth development Olympic gymnastic teams. She was married to a hugely talented alpine skier who sadly passed before his time. After the Olympic adventure Olga turned her energy to running her own chiropractic practice in Kazakhstan where she resided for several years. In parallel to relieving the pain for her clients she added English to her repertoire of languages and later perfected French with her move to Montreal, Canada. Olga is a world traveler with a Russian grandmother and Chinese grandfather who afforded her the opportunity to travel extensively whilst growing up. It is only fitting that Olga find a natural fit and would after scouting the world choose Asia as her manufacturing choice of excellence.

In the US Olga reinvented herself yet again to pursue her passion in the Interior Design world. She trained in the State of Florida where she has been residing since 1999. Prior to this, Olga was already an accomplished and avid seamstress, a hobby she pursued since her 12th Birthday when she got her first sewing machine as a present. Olga launched O Design Team by combining her skills as a professional seamstress with her interest in design. She has an exceptional eye for detail and for high end finishings on all soft furnishings that has resulted in an enhanced overall experience that one can expect to receive when dealing with a purchase or custom design project at Shape of Wicker.

With ample trade experience under her belt she realized very quickly that there was a potential gap in the market for the ”outdoor interior” of south-west Florida. Olga put all her attention into catering to a clientele hungry for contemporary, hand crafted, and sophisticated custom made outdoor furniture and products. She is preoccupied with the external forms and shapes as a whole, the internal composition, even the detailing of the edges and new concepts every time. It is a uniquely holistic approach that leads to structures which are highly functional and comfortable. Olga has a penchant for wicker in natural form and synthetic, the latter form being the basis for her highly acclaimed collections designed under the roof of Shape of Wicker.

Brenda De Aquino, Designer at Shape of Wicker Custom Wicker FurnitureBrenda was born and raised in Naples, Florida and as a first-generation immigrant, she brings an exciting and unique perspective on design and functionality to our brand.

Her parents settled in Florida where Brenda and her siblings were born and raised. Today she continues to have a strong love for her Mexican heritage and often travels to visit family.

Brenda knew from a young age that she loved design. Her father being a general contractor, always had a set of blueprints laid out which caught her interest in the design, layout, functionality, and features of a home – both inside and out.

Initially, she wanted to pursue a career as an architect, but quickly that plan changed. For personal reasons she opted for a college closer to home and continued her education at Southwest Florida College; receiving a degree in Interior Design.

Brenda had many responsibilities to juggle, but her dedication and her persistence allowed her to get closer to her goals. During and after college Brenda interned at several local design firms gathering experience in fabric selections, finished selections, and home dressing. Later working as a design assistant at London Bay Homes, she acquired a deeper knowledge of design and layout perspectives hard finishes, and construction experience. That is where and when her love for both construction and interior design merged, which led her to take the role of a Project Manager at her family’s company.

Today, we are exceptionally pleased to have her on our team. Her desire to design brought her back in a full circle to become a team member of Shape of Wicker where her creativity, and knowledge of design could be of service in customizing exceptional furniture that looks and functions beautifully.

Michele Renna, Team Member at Shape of Wicker Custom Wicker Furniture

Michele was born and raised in North-western New Jersey. Her parents retired and settled in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida in 1995 right after she wed her husband Severino. Although Michele had always intended to retire to Florida, the Covid pandemic and remote employment caused that move to occur much sooner than anticipated. Although the East Coast of Florida was more familiar, they fell in love with the West Coast the moment they visited Naples and closed on their house in May 2022. 

Michele began her accounting career with one of the Big 8 accounting companies, but she soon discovered she preferred more intimate interactions and engagements with people, as well as determining her own hard work potential. A change in employment to sales and business development helped her achieve this. Her career has spanned over the last few decades with a break to raise her two children in the middle. During that time at home with her children she realized she also had a passion for decorating and creating warm, inviting spaces to share with her family and friends as well as guiding family and friends in their own homes. She has always been concerned about homelessness, so in her free time she volunteered with a local non-profit to help generate funds and awareness for the affected people in her community.  

Since a decade ago, Michele has been employed by an exhibit company, where she works in the business development division, assisting companies of all sizes and across many industries to increase brand recognition inside their booth spaces at trade shows across the country. From inception to close Michele had a hand in all the elements of design, furniture and fabrication of the build structure to create showstopping exhibits. She cherished the fact that each project was unique. But unfortunately, due to Covid that industry has been greatly impacted. 

Like many others during the pandemic, she asked herself, “What am I passionate about? What am I going to do next?” During a visit to a new neighbor’s home in Naples, she fell in love with the design that was created by our team. We are thrilled to have her join us, and help us promote our custom one of a kind furniture at Shape of Wicker; her passion is contagious.
