The journey is just as important as the destination, according to Nicholas Moriarty, and in design, that journey is characterized by process.
“For me, every project starts and ends with being on the same page as the client,” he says. “I conduct my business with acute transparency, and that starts from the ground up. It’s a blend between architectural and interior design; it’s reimagining a space without losing the essence of what makes it beautiful – the people who breathe life into it every day.”
He describes himself as someone who has a taste for the finer things and a talent for mastering technical skills, acquiring cutting-edge industry knowledge and relationships, applying strategic and transparent business practices and injecting his designs with a personalized, livable aesthetic – all of which he feels set his work at Nicholas Moriarty Interiors in Chicago apart.
Educated at the University of Northern Iowa with a bachelor’s degree in marketing and Harrington College of Design with an associate’s degree in interior design, Moriarty pulls from modernist designs to inspire the unique, eclectic, contemporary interiors he creates for each client. He relates that he is particularly inspired by the art and design of iconic figures such as Le Corbusier, Walter Gropius and the Bauhaus Movement, and artists like Andy Warhol, Anselm Kiefer, Gerhard Richter and Jasper Johns.
