MARLO INTERIORS

In 2010 Michelle founded MARLO INTERIORS, LTD resigning from her Senior VP position at Arthur Shuster Inc (ASI) after 13 years of dedication.  Being intricately involved in her projects from the initial sales call, budgeting and estimating through final design and installation of furnishings provided her with the in depth knowledge of all project aspects.  Michelle has implemented this experience into her everyday work efforts and MARLO INTERIORS, LTD has hit the ground running.  Prior to joining ASI Michelle was employed by Elness, Swenson Graham Architects, Inc. as an Interior Architectural Specialist / Project Designer, where she also met with vendors and maintained the design library.  From 1991 to 1995, Michelle was an Interior Architect / Lead Interior Designer for Trossen Wright Architects.

Michelle has been involved in product development, specifically orchestrated for senior housing, with numerous carpet and furniture manufacturers.  Her efforts have upgraded industry standards, improved on commercial products with a “residential” appearance, and implemented dimensions / scale more appropriate for the senior population.  Her creative abilities and meticulous attention to detail have made her efforts notably recognized.  Michelle brings her unique talents and experience to the numerous projects she has completed over the course of her career; as such she is highly regarded in the senior industry.
