Interior and furniture design company Pal + Smith, based in Newport Beach, California, has announced its debut in New York with representation by the Michael Tavano showroom.


Melissa Palazzo, co-founder and principal designer of Pal + Smith, uses colors that pop, rich historical references, and rock and roll undertones to create a look with a distinct urban flair.


“Michael has fabulous taste, and a flair for drama in his presentation,” says Palazzo. “We gravitate toward the same shades of green, blue and purple.” Tavano agrees: “We have the same aesthetic. I think Melissa and I were separated at birth.”


The Michael Tavano showroom recently opened its doors at the New York Design Center and offers a large selection of furniture, fabrics, carpets, window coverings and hardware. For over 20 years, Michael Tavano has been fabricating very creative window treatments and upholstered goods to customers’ specifications.
