Founded in 2009 by Michelle Salz-Smith, Studio Surface is an interior design firm that transforms spaces throughout the West Coast and internationally with projects and clients ranging from residential home remodels to high end resort brands. Michelle and her team are known for creating balanced interiors that have a layered and collected aesthetic with an unexpected edge. They work to create modern and stylish spaces that remain timeless and refined yet have a laid-back, effortless vibe reflecting their client’s individual lifestyles. Working closely with artisans, craftspeople and clients, Studio Surface provides a customized approach when creating the visual stories and personalized experiences for each project. We are passionate about interiors, various materials and objects and are always exploring different resources as well as the processes and techniques applied to furniture, lighting, accessories, spaces, vertical and horizontal SURFACES and all the rest. All of our interiors and creations are thought up in our studio in Del Mar. Or while driving or eating. Or sleeping.
