FR Review:
Jeffrey Alan Marks has a fresh, breezy style. Allergic to clutter, Mark's rooms are elegantly spare, yet joyfully playful. Timeless English armchairs with silk striped pillows sit contentedly beside glam chrome and glass. Architecture often plays a starring role in projects, to which Marks contributes greater vision from the start. Landscape also receives a good amount of attention from Marks, who thoughtfully integrates the inside with the outside—furniture frames windows and verdant fabrics highlight views.

After completing a five-year program in architecture and interior design in Arizona, Marks studied and apprenticed in London for another five. He formed his own firm in 1992 with an outpost in London. Willing to do a few rooms or a ground-up operation, Marks's budgets run the gamut. With Marks and a back office of four and about five major projects a year, the firm is said to be quite responsive. Marks divides his time between Southern California and London, which unquestionably influences both his hip Euro-chic and his more stately compositions.

The firm works on a flat, standard design fee and a standard markup. Marks has developed a line of furniture based on favorite client designs. Innovation impresses clients and comfort draws them back, as Marks is often used again and then referred to friends. A boost to his media profile, Marks was a cast member of the popular Bravo reality show "Million Dollar Decorators." HB Top Designers. Elle Decor A-list.

"Jeffrey's designs are original, imaginative and inspired." "Jeffrey demonstrates resourcefulness at every turn." "He is supportive and cooperative with the client and with subs and vendors." "Jeffrey truly cares about his projects and his clients." "He adds panache, elegance and color as appropriate for the situation." "He does a really wonderful stately traditional as well." "A real professional, and Jeffrey maintains a witty sense of humor throughout." "He might show up in bright green plush trousers and suggest the same for your living room sofa." "The budgets have been reasonable, and his fees comparable to others." "He respects the architecture, building upon its heritage." "A super friendly, easygoing guy, which is the best style you can have."
