Signature: “We create luxurious, understated interiors, no matter what the budget. We avoid flashy, in-your-face luxury.” His work is informed by modern principles (uncluttered, well-lit open spaces that are serene rather than showy), even when the particular genre he’s working in at a given moment is traditional, contemporary, or something in between. His rooms tend to employ clean-lined furniture upholstered in textured solids—busy patterns are almost nonexistent—as a backdrop for a few carefully chosen accent pieces that add character (an elaborate Chinese armoire, an ornate hand-carved candelabra, a grand Venetian mirror).

Sphere of Work: Asia, Europe, North America

Fields: Residential, hotels, restaurants, yachts, jets, commercial (offices and financial institutions), furniture, lighting, fabric

Clients: Prominent names in the worlds of real estate, fashion, cosmetics, philanthropy, and more. Some notable clients include Marvin Davis, Sir Michael Kadoorie, Leonard Lauder, Jessica McClintock, Julie Chaiken, and John and Lisa Pritzker.

Current Notable Projects: “We just finished a private jet, and we’re doing the interiors for Ram’s Gate Winery in Sonoma, which is scheduled to open in July.” Diaz-Azcuy is also working with Western Athletic Clubs, a longtime client, on an approximately $50 million health club in Silicon Valley, and on private residential projects in the $80 million to $90 million range.
