In 1975 Mariette Himes-Gomez opened her own Manhattan firm, Gomez Associates, which is known for very livable rooms with clean lines and clear architectural definition. She is widely published and the bestselling author of APARTMENTS and Rooms and Houses, and her line of furniture, the Mariette Himes Gomez Collection for the Hickory Chair Company, is available in stores throughout the country and in her own store, The Shop, in New York City.
Mariette’s true skill is creating beautiful, serene sanctuaries that provide a respite for today’s harried families. Architectural details and a much celebrated eye for subtle color provide her spaces with a sleek personal touch while also spotlighting elegant antiques, fine artwork and unique personal objects. She manages to combine both high-style glamour and refined simplicity.
Mariette’s store carries, in addition to her own signature furniture and furnishing collections, an extraordinary array of period furniture, objects of interest, paintings and books, including her own.
The highest honor that ASID bestows on one of its members, Himes Gomez is being recognized for her outstanding design work over a 30-year career and her contributions to the field of residential and commercial design. Himes Gomez manages to combine both high-style glamour and refined simplicity.
Having first opened the doors of her Interior Design Studio nearly fourty years ago, Mariette Himes Gomez has constantly redefined her own remarkable vision many times over.

The new additions include everything from seating, tables of all sorts and sizes to an especially romantic bed. Many of the new pieces are included in the Hickory Chair Made-To-Measure program allowing them to be customized to perfectly meet the needs of each customer.
