As a full-service boutique design firm, Naomi Stein and her team find true joy in interior problem-solving and the resulting transformation that "manifests" within that living space. Known for her masterful use of bold color, contrasting patterns and seemingly magical mixing of differing styles, Naomi is committed to fostering a creative balance that is reflective of the individual needs and overall aesthetic of her every client.
In 2004, Naomi fused her "modern-bohemian-glamour" vision with her father, Andrew Stein's flourishing contractor business Design Manifest—originally founded in 1986. Together, they designed and remodeled interiors—namely kitchens and baths throughout the Main Line and greater Philadelphia area, until Andrew's retirement in 2016. With over twelve years of her father's expert tutelage, Naomi honed her construction and space planning skills and built a reputation for enviable execution. Naomi approaches projects with a "best of both worlds" know-how, transforming spaces far beyond fresh paint and chic décor.
Currently located in Philadelphia's Bok Building—where Naomi's unmistakable style has infused every inch, complete with a swoon-worthy kitchen for hosting clients and events, Design Manifest is writing their next chapter. The strategic move to Bok—a creative haven of businesses, is part of Naomi's strategy to go beyond the known notion of interior design by fostering a venue that promotes community and offers "Shop the Studio" appointments for clientele.
