"From the biggest and the best to the more modest room...he understands the little things. He never forgets anything. And he has a real sense of honesty and integrity."

Tiffany - Woodcliff Lake

The Team

Meet our multi-talented team
Michael Mariotti
Owner / Principal Designer

Michael’s illustrious, decades-long career had surprisingly humble beginnings in a quaint little upholstery workroom, where he began assisting design clients as a high school student. He’s certified through the National Council for Interior Design, where he became an ambassador. He joined the American Society of Interior Designers and became its President in 2014. And he’s a member of the National Kitchen and Bath Association, with his work being published in numerous design magazines. But to those with whom he’s worked before, his approachable personality and ability to listen intently are perhaps most notable.
