About Us

What’s in a name? A moniker is more than just a name – it’s also an expression of who you are. We believe this also applies to the spaces you call your own. Each room should celebrate the story of your individuality and simultaneously reveal your style. Our remarkable custom furniture and unique décor provide an unrivaled opportunity to create distinctive interiors that reflect you. While the story is yours, our expert team guides the design process with one goal: to ensure your experience is personal, inspiring, and enjoyable. Welcome to Moniker Home!

Headquartered in Los Angeles, Moniker is a premier custom furniture and interior décor studio whose mission is to bring each client’s vision to life. For nearly 25 years, the interior lifestyle brand has been beloved for its signature style – inviting luxury – a niche that it defined within classic-contemporary design.

Balancing form and function, Moniker’s principal design philosophy is to create custom furniture pieces that blend traditional and modern lines with exceptional craftsmanship. Moniker’s “superpower” is its ability to accommodate nearly every conceivable design specification. Handmade locally by the most skilled carpenters, upholsterers, and metal workers in Los Angeles, every piece is built to stand the test of time.

The real magic is in Moniker’s collaborative process. Moniker tailors its design approach to each client’s individual needs and stays in constant communication with customers, helping them make design decisions along the way. Working in tandem with clients from initial concept to delivery, Moniker is always by your side.

Moniker’s diverse clientele includes budding design enthusiasts, seasoned decorators, and interior design firms ranging from boutique to internationally-renowned. Trusted as an invaluable resource, many trade clients rely on Moniker to serve as a seamless extension of their own in-house teams. All customers depend on the company to draw upon its vast manufacturing experience to ensure that the end product is exactly as ordered.

Moniker’s heirloom-quality pieces are found in residences, hotels, and restaurants worldwide. The company also produces custom furniture for television and movie sets.

Whether it is custom or curated, a Moniker Home space always feels timeless, welcoming, and bespoke.
