Design isn’t just Mark Suess’ profession, it’s his basic instinct.
“I’ve always had a creative mind. When I look at things my natural instinct is to imagine how they could be functionally and aesthetically better. Detail has always been a fundamental value for my designs.”
As the son of a home-builder and seamstress, Mark has spent his entire life experimenting with tools, materials and fabrics.
“My mother and father had remnants and scrap building materials from projects, so I just put them together and created things.”
Mark discovered at a young age that he had the ability to build what he wanted. “I like being surrounded by nice things, so I learned how to make them. I also appreciate quality because I know the difference, see the difference and feel the difference.”
Mark’s world travels contributed to his creative palette as he made a name for himself coast to coast. He politely shrugged convention and blazed his own brand of global design blending such unlikely bedfellows as French provincial, Asian traditional, Italian contemporary and American casual into unique spatial solutions.
