THE DESIGNER

“Functional Opulence” is the key to his designs, which draw inspiration from the Orient, African Primitivism, and Art Deco. The work incorporates fine art and antiques with modern materials and high tech accessories, attaching the same sculptural value to utility objects as to important pieces of art. The look, drawn from the twentieth century, results in intensely comfortable and superbly elegant environments that delight eye, mind and body alike..

The company has designed palatial residences, private jets and yachts, and unique office environments for clients throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, South America, Europe and Asia. “Silent Celebrities” is a term coined by the firm that fervently guards the privacy of its clients which include some of the most prominent families in the world.
