Mark Christofi was one of seven local designers to create an incomparable collection of seven models at the W-Residences called Inspired Concepts by DVC (Designers, Vendors and Contractors) in Boston last Spring.
Mark's unit, or Pod, entitled "A sense of place, the Mod Pod" is a Nod to the late 60's / early 70's, with a progressive slant on the disco era. Large graphics and pops of color combine to create a stylish, mature setting ideal for the sophisticated city dweller whom shall always remain young at heart.
Inspired by the period video "Life on Mars" and "Nashville," this updated concept "felt like a direct response to the graphic nature of the 60's juxtaposed to a modern, organic feeling which gave way to the 70's." The Mod Pod is a current, hip domain that is livable and penurious. This "Love American Style" den is all about collaboration, from the concoction of the graphic stylings of Matt Cody (Portland Color Lab) and the photographic talents of Eric Roth, to the artistic lighting by Lux Lighting, refreshed era pieces by Circle Furniture, and accessories by Marimekko, the Mod Pod truly is an innovative a blast from the past.

The client is central to Mark's process. He begins a project with no preconceived vision. Designs are created 'from' clients. They are not given 'to' clients. What are their likes and dislikes? What is their personality? How do they live and entertain? What is their vision for each space? This discussion and collaboration with each client result in a unique style that immediately feels comfortable and familiar. Mark works within a variety of budgets from refreshing single room and invigorating small country retreats to whole-house interior design projects. Mark has worked closely with architects on newly designed homes and with owners on historic homesteads.
Mark has relationships with some of the most notable artists, crafters, furniture makers, tradesman, and home suppliers around the country. He has worked on projects from coast to coast.
