Native New Yorker Victoria Maiolo grew up admiring the juxtaposition between nature and urban life. As a child, she played barefoot outdoors while the cityscape glimmered in the distance. She cultivated her eye for design during family outings on the weekend, browsing stores upstate, pulling tears from magazines, and scavenging through antique markets. Victoria is attracted to objects that tell a story and to anything with a sense of nostalgia. Her love for travel and interiors led her to attend trade shows like Maison & Objet in Paris, while she earned her B.S. in Home Products Development at the Fashion Institute of Technology. Victoria later fell for the world of styling while working at prop houses throughout New York City.
