FR Review:
Clients are consistently impressed with Mary Rubino's calm yet glamourous take on soft modern design and her professional abilities. Rooms will often include streamlined Italian furniture or early 20th-century American in bold colors, with witty accents. She is said to translate the personalities of clients into the design plans, with an aim to create comfortable and practical living spaces.

Rubino received a bachelor's degree in psychology and economics from Brown, and a master's in social anthropology from the University of Chicago. She also studied design for two years in Italy, and continues to attend the Milan Fair annually. She began the firm in 1997, and tends to work with bachelor entreprenuerers or young married couples in their 30s and 40s looking for a design statement. Projects have included condos and homes in Chicago's Gold Coast, Streeterville, River North Printers' Row, Evanston and Highland Park. This sole practitioner wins accolades for her accommodating nature and availability.

Rubino generally works with a low up-front design fee and retail on products. Clients report that she will often present several various-priced schemes per room, allowing the homeowner to control the budget. Friends pass on Rubino's name with confidence.

Representative Client Comments:
"Mary is great about doing research and will look to the ends of the earth to find the perfect piece." "She is very good about listening to the client, but also has lots of helpful recommendations." "She is the type of person you become friends with because you trust her." "She is well connected to the design world and gets good deals." "When it looked like 'real' artwork was out of the budget, she found some really great old photographs." "While we started with a plan to do just two rooms, it was so much fun that we did the whole apartment." "I actually hired Mary to add spice to my fairly boring apartment, with the thought of attracting a potential wife, and it worked!"
