FLAIR owners George Nunno and Jon Maroto both had previous careers in fashion, which meant frequent visits to the style capitals of the world--Paris, Florence, Antwerp, London. They established a network of private dealers and suppliers who granted them access to the hard-to-find and interesting pieces that they continue to seek out today. With an exacting eye for color, proportion, and elegance, they have an elegantly modern, sexy, unexpected style, often combining vintage furniture with pieces of their design and new and artisanal works.
