He’s a visionary, although he won’t admit it. He teams up the best people, supports, encourages, guides, helps his members, and gives them all the credit for success.

Since opening up his chic Greene Street showroom in Soho 14 years ago, Murray Moss has endeavored to blur the line between fine art and design. His furnishings gallery—which recently opened a second location in Los Angeles—is anything but ordinary, encompassing creations that range from dashingly daring to delightfully bizarre.
Murray Moss doesn’t believe in arbitrary boundaries— least of all the one that is imagined to divide art from liv- ing. In his gallery space in New York and now at his newly opened location on Melrose Avenue, he has gathered a stable of international talents who combine craft-bench sensibility, intellectu- al rigor and high aesthetics to create furniture, jewelry and even housewares that are, without question, works of art.
