The Design Questionnaire with Architect & Designer Eddie Maestri
In this edition of Love Happens’ Proust-style Design Questionnaire, join us for a peek inside the creative design mind of Eddie Maestri, founder, principal architect, and creative director of the Dallas, Texas-based architecture and design studio, Maestri. Since 2008, Eddie and his talented team at Maestri Studio have been creating beautiful bespoke homes and interiors across the US.
A native of New Orleans, Eddie Maestri started designing homes in Dallas in 2004 and officially founded Maestri Studio in 2008. With a knack for attention to detail and building strong client relationships, Eddie delivers truly custom architecture and design that is tailored to his clients’ styles and needs. With a deep appreciation for design, his work is often influenced by the grand, yet approachable, architecture of his home town, the clean lines and patterns of mid-century design, and his exposure to faraway places through his love of travel. On each project, Eddie guides his team throughout the process while encouraging a collaborative approach with independent and innovative thinking.
Maestri Gallery & Furniture Collection
In addition to creating beautiful homes inside and out, Eddie also designs custom furniture and offers a curated collection of art and home decor through his Maestri Gallery, located at Exposition Park, Dallas. A lover of design, art, and all things modern and unique, Eddie represents regional artists, works found afar, a curated selection of retail goods, as well as his own bespoke furniture collection. The Maestri Furniture Collection offers custom designs for the Studio’s most discerning and design-conscious clients, adding another layer of personalization for your home.
