What does “Made in Italy” mean to you?

An expression of the finest time honored tradition of artistry and craft. 

What inspires most of your work, and style?

I’m most inspired by the different natural materials and textures I see when I travel. Whether it’s in the United States, Italy, France, Ireland, Japan or South America, there are always opportunities to discover new elements and applications.

Describe your design approach and philosophy.

Rooms should feel like an effortless extension of our clients. Color, shape, texture, pattern and light are all in accord. When a space is well designed, it is well balanced. The design process should likewise provide an intuitive sense of calm.

Craftsmanship continues to be important because of the artistry involved in developing the item. The human connection is innately authentic and the passion for excellence creates an unparalleled feel and sense of balance.

What is the one design/décor you can not imagine your clients living without?

Other than a roof to create shelter or a good chair, I can’t imagine living without an environment that isn’t an extension of oneself.

What is your idea of the “ultimate luxury”?

While a sleek plane or a wardrobing valet are true luxuries, nothing surpases a home to which you always enjoy returning.
