“I love to inspire through beauty, comfort, and function, a sense of calm and happiness.”
A native of Bogotá, Colombia, Moises Esquenazi’s interest and early education in art were fostered by his grandmother, an artist and patron of contemporary Colombian artists.
Esquenazi was educated primarily in the U.S., earning a B.A. from Cornell University and an M.F.A. from the University of Southern California. Esquenazi’s early career was spent as an architectural renderer and animator in Los Angeles, working on such projects as Steve Wynn’s Freemont Street Experience in Las Vegas and the ATT Olympic Pavilion in Atlanta. His education in architecture and fine arts as well as the skills he fine-tuned as an animator proved invaluable for 3D modeling and rendering when he transitioned into a new career as an interior and products designer in 2000.
Esquenazi is also an accomplished photographer, having exhibited at The Makor Center in New York City as well as GalleryB in Sag Harbor, NY.
Whenever possible, Esquenazi customizes his clients’ homes by designing bespoke furnishings or wall coverings. Instead of focusing on a particular style, he strives to integrate the client’s background with the style of the architecture and the local surroundings, and always allowing function to guide the design.
Esquenazi’s Palm Springs home was featured as one of the “Best Homes in America” in the 25th Anniversary edition of Metropolitan Home, as well as his Hamptons home on a cover. Additional work has been published in House Beautiful, The Los Angeles Times, SPACE Magazine, The London Telegraph, Hamptons Cottages and Gardens and British Homes and Gardens.
