Designer Spotlight: Mix Master Michael Del Piero

Interior designers have been mixing traditional antiques with modern furniture for years. It’s how eclectic style became known! For a fresh take on the “mix”, I love to blend ancient artifacts with clean lined, contemporary upholstered pieces. I create interiors fused with primitive, weathered objects instead of traditional accessories and blasts of color from modern abstract art.

Michael Del Piero

Over the past decade, interior designer Michael Del Piero has created a distinctive aesthetic that fuses rough with luxurious and ancient with modern. Clean lines, sophisticated palettes, and exotic pieces come together through designer/client collaboration, resulting in harmonious, balanced interiors that never fail to excite. In 2008, she opened her eponymous shop, a showcase for sculptural furniture, unusual objects and abstract art, in Chicago’s Bucktown neighborhood.
