Mark MacLachlan remembers his love of design being sparked by his grandparent's small ranch home in California. "We spent a lot of our childhood in that house. I remember the front doorknob was large and in the center of the door…a kidney shaped sofa in the family room, a hallway planter that ran the length of the living room. It’s here where I began to develop my fondness for mid-century design". This eye for detail and a love for the creative process has helped drive MacLachlan throughout his design career, most recently as Senior Manager for Store Design at Nordstrom where he led the store design team for the Nordstrom's flagship store in New York City.
"I’m motivated by the love of the design process. I enjoy the sense of creating something that brings joy and beauty into peoples lives. The love of materials and emotions they inspire. A beautiful patina that gets better with age because it’s made of something real. Designing objects that are both timeless and beautiful….all these things inspire me."
