Let me introduce myself…I am Marni Sugerman and I have always had a passion for beautiful interiors. It’s no surprise because it is in my genes. I grew up visiting my grandfather’s furniture showrooms, and listening to stories of market trips and new furniture introductions. Excellent quality and fabulous design have always been a fascination of mine and something I have always aspired to achieve.
After earning my BFA in textiles from the elite Rhode Island School of Design, I had the opportunity to work with many fine home furnishing textile companies such as American Silk Mills, Springs Industries, and Covington Fabrics. For over twelve years I enjoyed designing fabrics for the upscale home furnishings industry. When I traveled to the Highpoint furniture markets to view my work and that of my peers in so many magnificent showrooms, things came full circle My success as a textile designer was extremely rewarding.
Fast forward about ten years, I now have a beautiful family with a wonderful husband and two amazing daughters. We live in Riverdale, NY, and since my daughters were born I have worked both as a graphic designer and as an art teacher in the non-profit sector. Besides affording me great flexibility to raise my girls, it allowed me to encounter new areas of design while becoming a part of a community filled with warmth and supportive friendships. It is with these strengths that I look forward to my new enterprise.
