"Creating beauty + harmony. A unique, curated collection of exclusive furnishings, lighting, décor and art."
Marie Burgos founded her nationally published interior design firm in 2007, which includes both residential, hospitality and commercial design. Burgos obtained a Masters of Business Management degree from the University of Paris and an Interior Design degree from New York University. During her studies, she strived to balance elegance and harmony while keeping her designs luxurious and tasteful. Through this quest she studied the principles of Feng Shui. While studying under the Grand Master Lin Yu of Berkley California she earned the “Red Ribbon” status membership in the international Feng Shui Guild. This unique approach to the industry brings a wide range of design styles to her portfolio. Burgos became known for her stunning loft and penthouse transformations in Tribeca, Chelsea, Soho, and The Hamptons.
Marie and her team have completed dozens of homes, commercial spaces and hospitality interiors for a national and international clientele. Her critically acclaimed interior design firm has offices in New York City and Los Angeles.
In her design projects for both residential and commercial interiors, Marie still emphasizes harmony, comfort and abundant style. She looks for shapes, textures, and colors that will enhance her clients’ lifestyles while adding exciting new design dimensions to their rooms. This is also the approach that Marie has taken in developing the Marie Burgos Collection of carefully curated modern furniture, lighting, décor and art.

Born and raised in Paris, Marie draws inspiration from both French design and her family’s native home of Martinique. Paired with a deep appreciation of mid-century modern furniture, Marie has taken the clean lines that defined the iconic designs of that movement and given them a luxurious new simplicity. Her use of Feng Shui, of which she is a certified master, always plays an important role in bringing a harmonious balance. The result is sophisticated, contemporary furnishings designed for today that playfully pays homage to the best of an earlier era.

From 23k gold and oxidized iron pendants to hand woven paper floor lamps, the Marie Burgos Collection’s lighting options offer a world of aesthetic styles while embodying an ethos of balance and harmony. Exquisitely crafted lights that add to the visual poetry of a space anchor the collection. It’s an honor to bring together this unique selection of chandeliers, lamps, and sconces that are otherwise unavailable in the US market.
Q&A

What is your favorite material to work with?

"I have a number of favorite materials that work to their best advantage when combined..... wood in all of its endless rich shades, fabric because of its many colorations and softness, metal because it can be used in any shape you can imagine, and glass for its eclat!"
-- Marie Burgos Design
Q&A

What do you want people to do or feel when they encounter your creations?

"Quite simply I want people to experience my designs by first considering their beauty and style and then to experience their comfort. We use all five natural Feng Shui elements -- wood, fire, water, glass and leather -- in our seating designs to provide ultimate comfort and an all-important sense of well being."

What makes a space special?

Q&A

What’s unique about your work?

"Since my heritage is both Caribbean and French, I feel that my designs are unique in that they combine strong design influences from both cultures. Creating harmony with strong use of Feng Shui principles are also driving forces in both my interior and and furnishings designs."

How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

"We are surprised and delighted that our Cayenne chair and ottoman were selected for the NYCX Design 1stDibs event. And then there is the collaboration with the German Kitchen Center, which is showcasing my designs in their showrooms, including their flagship
showrooom in the D&D Building. Then we are thrilled to be offered the opportunity to furnish the stage for this year's ILC Congress with designs from the Marie Burgos Collection. We feel blessed."
