Educated at the University of Northern Iowa (BA Marketing) and Harrington College of Design (AA Interior Design), Nicholas utilizes his diverse background to provide every client with a holistic interpretation of their respective style and a solution that accommodates their needs and desires. Nicholas is a modernist at heart with his earliest aesthetic memories revolving around Le Corbusier, the Bahaus Movement, and artists like Andy Warhol, Anselm Kiefer, Gerhard Richter, and Jasper Johns. It is through Nicholas’ fundamental understanding of Modernism that he is able to interpret and actualize a variety of design styles. Le Corbusier once said, “good design is intelligence made visible” – a sentiment that stands firm at the roots of NMI.
Since its inception in 2008, Nicholas Moriarty Interiors (NMI) has quickly garnered an esteemed reputation as “one of the top emerging young design firms” in Chicago. Recognized as forward-thinking and client-focused, NMI strives to create unique environments that fundamentally change the way the client interacts with their space. By drawing on a passion for a variety of design styles, from traditional to the avant-garde, our work is consistently recognized for its depth of texture, personality, and warmth. Through our knowledge of art, fashion, and design, we take a multi-disciplinary approach to the design process that allows us to draw out as much personal information from each client as possible. Thus, we create an environment that reflects every client’s individual life experiences.
