Co-founded by top Chicago interior designer, Lauren Lozano Ziol and graphic designer Michelle Jolas, SKIN is a boutique interior design firm that specialises in high-end residential design. With a strong understanding of all elements of design, materials and style, their custom-made furniture and designs aren’t afraid to push boundaries - think iconic pieces with eclectic wallpapers, rugs and colours.
Combining their talents and experience, Lauren and Michelle bring a new level to interior design, merging old world aesthetics with graphic sensibility and offering an unparalleled level of service and project management skills.
With Lauren’s background in art history and successful furniture line, SKIN’s top priority is educating clients on art and furniture history and provenance. Michelle frequents estate sales and auction houses on the hunt for vintage finds and they both love to reupholster and repaint antiques, bringing them back to life.
Alongside their interior design services, SKIN offers additional services including: a custom-made furniture line designed by Ziol and inspired by French Art Deco and Paris flea market pieces of the 20’s and 40’s, and personalised furniture and antique shopping trips in many international cities so that clients can work one-on-one with Lauren and Michelle.
As for the name? SKIN implies layers, not only in the layers of detail in their interiors but in fully getting to know the client so that their own unique personality is reflected in every curated detail.
