Who We Are

Our Great Team

  • Gary David

    CEO, ASID, Emeritus

    Gary David Niethamer's design is recognized as a classical approach that transcends trendiness. A master of his medium, his interest in interior design evolved when he began working for his father's drapery workroom while attending high school. It was then that his life's direction turned north to study at the Wilsey School of Art in New York. Design has been his passion ever since.

    A graduate of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, Niethamer is well versed in architechture and art history. He nourishes and enriches his perspective by traveling the world collecting art and antiques on behalf of his clients. Over three decades later, Gary now acts as a consultant to some of the area's leading developers and builders on such matters as nuance, texture and style.

  • Ed Jordan


    I knew what I wanted to do with my life; to create spaces that emulate a sense of comfort and livability.

    For me, the process of creating a living environment has many phases. First, there is the excitement of meeting the clients and brainstorming ideas, analyzing needs, wants and desires. Then there is the labor of bringing the ideas and concepts to life. That's where my ability to handle the details really comes into play. In the end, presenting the finished installation to the client is truly delightful. The most rewarding experience is when the design exceeds the clients expectations.

    As a designer, I can help you express your thoughts and emotions through the various aspects of design - the color schemes, furniture placement and accessories. But when it's all said and done, it's your statement we're creating, not mine. Overall, I strive for a casual elegance that gives each room a harmonious feeling of "home."
