Mark Weaver | A Masterclass in Timeless Design

Mark Weaver founded his eponymous, full-service design firm, Mark Weaver & Associates, in Los Angeles over 30 years ago. The firm’s extensive portfolio includes residential installations, private aircrafts, yachts, office and corporate installations for Fortune 500 companies, and private island retreats. The firm’s work has spanned projects from Los Angeles to New York, restorations of historic estates in Nantucket and Santa Barbara, a townhouse in London, renovations and interiors for a 16th century palazzo in Piacenza, Italy.

Mark regularly lectures at UCLA’s interior design program and is a founding member of both the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art and The Institute of Classical Architecture & Art. He is also a member of the Decorative Arts Council for LACMA and a patron of the Los Angeles Opera.

In this Fireside Chat™, Mark discusses growing up in Southern California and how he’s seen Los Angeles evolve through the years. He discusses how his Italian heritage has greatly influenced his love of history, architecture and antiquity. He shares his love for travel and culture, which takes him abroad searching for the rare and usual. Finally, he discusses his impressions on outdoor space activation and how it is a pivotal element of his work across North America.
