  1. the STORY behind the DESIGNER...


    Accredited designer Michael Strauss has been featured in numerous trade publications and on television networks. Michael gathers  inspiration from various aspects throughout the design industry, including commercial and residential design to theatrical stage design. He began working in the design industry designing for large scale theatrical stage productions which forced him to think outside the box, often times achieving over-sized looks on undersized budgets. Seamlessly transitioning from stage design to interior design came by honing design skills in the bustling metropolitan area of New York City. This has enabled him to develop and finesse his design style to bring clients the trademark look. Previous projects Michael has worked on include designs for the NFL Sports Commissioner, public city figures, and widespread residential and commercial clientele.
