Michael Del Piero founded Michael Del Piero Good Design in 2007 based on three simple principles: strive for balance; create interiors as current as they are enduring, as sophisticated as they are approachable, and as unusual as they are beautiful; and take care of clients as if they are royalty, serving their needs above all else.
A curious soul, a world traveler, and one of the earliest vendors on 1st Dibs, Del Piero is known for her accomplished eye and uncommon knack for a serene and simple mix that bridges generations of style. Her distinct aesthetic fuses rough with luxurious and ancient with modern.
Fueled by her global finds and an appetite for all things beautiful, in 2008 Michael opened her eponymous shop in Chicago. Showcasing sculptural furniture, unusual objects and abstract art, lighting, and antiques, the venue bows to the "never precious" style of its founder.
In 2018 Michael expanded her east coast presence with partner and artist Lukas Machnik, creating a shop and design studio located at 372 Montauk Highway in Wainscott, NY, to local acclaim. The Hamptons shop has is a casual, earthy, approachable vibe that translates to everything they do - from curating the shop selections, most of the objects are antique, vintage, or one of a kind. Each piece is selected based on it’s story; the country of origin, and how it was created. Michael and Lukas source objects that have similar backstories, either from Europe, Africa, India, Asia, the Netherlands, and more. Her fresh approach has garnered accolades from a worldwide and most discerning clientele.
Lukas Machnik is the founder and lead designer of LUKAS MACHNIK DESIGN, the interior design firm he established in Chicago 15 years ago. Machnik is known for his signature avant-garde minimalist style which sets him apart from other designers and allures high-end residential and commercial clients throughout the nation and abroad.
In addition to interior design, Machnik occupies such roles as artist, curator, interior architect, object designer, and television personality – with a complex practice that spans media. Using minimalism as an aesthetic reference point, Machnik moves beyond the traditionalist ideology of interior design and approaches projects with a curatorial sensibility. Whether working on a single room, a whole home or an entire building he considers every element as part of the experience of the whole.
