After studying architecture at Pratt Institute for a year, Martin Raffone went on to earn a degree in interior design from Parsons School of Design. He was lucky enough to work with one of the top design firms in New York City – B Five Studio. Over the course of five years with the firm, he learned to work with some of the best crafts people and contractors in the city and expanded his design skills and knowledge in developing a broad and deep foundation that allowed him to establish his own firm in 2000.
Martin is drawn to natural materials that reference the environment around them, whether city or country, and believes that the surfaces one lives with should always have a connection to the organic. To him, a serene interior is best achieved through the use of finishes that enhance a material’s innate quality, a palette derived as much from materials as from applied color, and a subtly stimulating variety of textures.
Martin's goal: an interior, no matter how richly appointed, should be comfortable, never stuffy. His well-designed spaces speak to his client’s needs and delight them with beautiful details, moments, and ease. His goal is that every client feels that his or her interior is not only inspiring and original but also truly feels like home.
