For two decades, Marjorie Skouras Design has been creating world class interiors for several of the prominent families of the United States. Having coined the now widely used term Traditional with a Twist, this accurately describes the vast majority of her work. She is wont to drift into the realm of the surreal with those who share this interest, but is just as adept working in modern minimalism. Marjorie views her goal as interpreting the vision of her client in a visually exciting and pleasing, as well as utilitarian way, with all involved enjoying the ride.
In the early 2000s, Marjorie began designing bespoke pieces for her clients, which led to a deeper interest in both manufacturing techniques and exotic materials. A line was created, with an initial emphasis on lighting but gradually incorporating mirrors, furniture and home accessories. The Marjorie Skouras Design line has been represented by prestigious to the trade showrooms including Holly Hunt, Dennis Miller and Associates, Keith McCoy & Associates and DeSousa Hughes. Her clients are now all across the globe.
Marjorie's work has been featured in a multitude of design publications including The World of Interiors, Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, House and Garden, House Beautiful, Veranda, Traditional Home, AD France, AD Russia, AD Australia, Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, The London Times, The New York Times and many more. One of her favorite bedrooms graced the cover of the April 2007 cover of Metropolitan Home Magazine, in which she was named one of the 100 most influential designers in the world. Her work has also been featured in seven books.
Marjorie now resides in a glorious Historic Colonial mansion from the Porfiriato period, which she and her husband restored, in the city of Merida, the Yucatan, Mexico. She has opened the boutique La Malaquita in another splendid example of Porfiriato Colonial architecture, which features her line as well as a gallery of Mexican photography and her collection of over 250 Mexican dresses from the 1970s. Her design studio is housed there as well, and all of her production of the pieces in her line are now produced in Merida.
We are proud to be able to offer a carefully curated mix of our lighting, furniture and accessories, as well as personal pieces from Marjorie's private collection, here on Chairish.
