A brief background...
I formed Kevin J. Maher Associates in
New York in 1985 after working for the
world famous Interior Designer William
Turner and drafting and sketching
custom furniture designs for pioneer in
the design industry Lorin Marsh and the
legendary French Furniture company --
Auffray and Company.
Over the course of ten years my
company provided services for New
York's Five Star Global partner Garden
City Hotel which included the design of
the Regency Grand Ballroom, Polo Bar &
Grill, Societe and Cotillion Rooms, guest
rooms and the Presidential suite.
Restaurants include lead designer for
Ben's Deli- Restarurant's flagship store
located in Bayside, Queens.
Noted Residential work includes
apartments on Fifth Avenue, Central Park
West, custom homes in Bridgehampton,
Long Island, New Jersey, Beverly Hills
and Rancho Mirage, CA.
My work has been published in
magazines and books and most notably
used for the Schonbek Chandelier
Company's advertisements which have
appreared in all major home decor
magazines over the years.
Award winning design...
Our work was judged by Architectural Digest for the Schonbek
Chandelier Company's best use of a chandelier in a residential setting.
The winning design is the living room shown below. It is a perfect
example of how I blend architectural detailing, custom furniture and
drapery, lighting, art and accessories to create a classic look.
