As a child in Italy, Catherine La Marca grew up in a home abundant with rich fabrics and pristine marble floors – all expressions of her mother’s domestic perfectionism. Catherine’s mother worked in the Italian fashion industry and brought her appreciation of fabric and fine textures into her home. This love of materials and design was her profession, her culture and her life. She shared this love with Catherine. Every detail of their home was selected with care to create an atmosphere of beauty and serenity. Their home became a refuge from the cares of the world.
Today, in the United States, families need such a refuge even more. Drawing from her experiences in Italy and extensive travels throughout Europe, Catherine La Marca strives to bring this sense of Old Europe to American homes with her designs.
Catherine La Marca brings a sense of family, home and timeless European style to all of her clients. Whether designing a room or an entire house, Catherine La Marca works diligently to create a unique expression based on client individuality. It is always seeking new ways to fuse the European standard of excellence in material and craftsmanship with the American sense of individual style.
Catherine La Marca’s grandmother took hours to painstakingly embroider a design into the fabric of a single swath of cloth. No detail was ever overlooked when bringing a project to completion– not by grandmother, mother, or daughter. Today, more than ever, Catherine La Marca understands the demand for detail in every corner of a client’s home.
Catherine La Marca’s education began in Italy and culminated in New York. Her work primarily involves residential areas throughout the tri-state area but also includes an occasional commercial project as well. Fine materials. Beauty. Old European ideas and ideals.
A home must look as unique as the soul of the family that inhabits it. This is the philosophy of Catherine La Marca.
