Creating timeless design with European antiques and modern accessories

Tara Shaw is an elegant and fearless designer. Her design principles stem from her firm belief that the interior design should be a reflection of the soul. Simple beauty can create an atmosphere of creativity which can shape the direction of our lives. Surrounding yourself with pieces you love and which hold artistic and historical meaning can be uniquely powerful. In her early life this New Orleans-based designer found her love for antiques through her maternal grandmother. Their special relationship forged a Tara’s discernible eye for fine European furnishings .

Known for her luxury European antiques and impressive interior stylings, Tara has experienced 20 years of success as an antique wholesaler. Her design philosophy has inspired countless exquisite interiors for members of the trade and fans alike. Her distinctive vision paired with her entrepreneurial spirit, challenged her to create her own line of antique reproduction and custom furniture, Maison, in 2007. Spending many years in Asia producing her line, Tara chose to return to the city she admires so much and continue her line of modern bespoke design using local artisans. New Orleans has always offer Tara inspiration. Influenced by the city’s historic architecture and European like sensibility, it has set the backdrop for her now famous portfolio.

Shaw’s signature style of anchoring a room with timeless Old World pieces mixed with her reproduction line, contemporary art and luxurious finishes opened the door for her to take on multiple celebrity design projects. Shaw has been featured on design television programs with HGTV and frequents the covers of international shelter magazines. Licensing with Restoration Hardware in 2013, Shaw maintains a prosperous career in product design and interior decorating.
