Everything that we convey through our collections."
Denise McGaha is the owner of Denise McGaha Interiors in Dallas, Texas. Her designs are consistently ahead of the curve, not just influencing interior fashion, but often dictating it. Her trademarked design process, “Designing with a Deadline” delivers fashionable, diverse, and adventurous designs for clients who live on the fast track; specializing in turn-key, concierge-level service delivered in 90 days or less. Denise’s sophisticated methodology, and solid business acumen, evolved through her decade in the corporate landscape of luxury retailer, Neiman Marcus, where she honed her well-trained eye, and was an integral part of the team that launched NeimanMarcus.com. Her projects have been published in multiple publications and she continues to lend her expertise to various respected brands in the industry.
Julia Buckingham leads a new generation of world-class interior designers bringing her Modernique® chic sensibility to both residential and commercial design projects around the country. Her spectacular collections of licensed product, numerous high profile panels, show houses, and personal appearances around the globe have earned her the reputation of a rock-solid force in the industry. Destined to become a design icon, the soon-to-be author runs highly successful design studios in Chicago and Phoenix specializing in luxury interiors with her signature vintage and modern mix. Since opening her design studio Buckingham Interiors + Design LLC in 2007, Julia has enjoyed national recognition as a tastemaker and color expert throughout the design industry.
Marcia Tucker is the owner of Marcia Tucker Interiors, a Greenwich-based interior design firm that fuses old world elegance with new world chic. Born in Rio de Janeiro, raised in San Francisco and New York, and educated in London, Marcia has developed a signature style that combines her love of sensual luxury and contemporary elegance with the quiet beauty of symmetry. Hers is a style relevant to today: global in perspective and tailored to the individual. One of Marcia’s most powerful influences came from growing up in a house in Brazil designed by the renowned Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, a pioneer in international modern architecture. Marcia is fueled by exotic travel, melding culture, art, textiles, landscapes and architecture into the unique worldview of her work.
