After graduating from Stanford University with degrees in Economics and Psychology, James Marzo followed his passion and pursued a career in design. Before opening his firm in 1985, Marzo gained experience as production manager for Randolph & Hein and director of Therien & Co.’ s interior design department further expanding his knowledge of antiques, art and design. Today, collectors rely on his expertise in antique and custom furnishings. In 1993, he oversaw the restoration of Gordon and Ann Getty’s extensive collection of antique furniture, one of the finest private collections in the world.

Marzo’s gracious, classic interiors have been featured in leading publications such as Architectural Digest and his client list includes many prominent families. Working with a small, strong support staff, he gives each discerning client the personal attention often lost when working with larger firms. Marzo’s approach is not to dictate his taste, but to express the personality of his clients.

Marzo states, “I am passionate about creating great design which provides enduring beauty and comfort. My ultimate goal is to design environments that nurture and perhaps even inspire my clients’ lives.”
