Katherine Wildt O'Brien is the founder of Matthew Studios. She began her career at a boutique interior design firm on Madison Avenue, & worked with a celebrity roster of clients. Here she developed a keen understanding of integrating fine art, custom furniture & lighting on large scale interior projects. Matthew Studios was established in an effort to blend Katherine's extensive knowledge of product design with her interest in natural materials & love of light. She works with a team of skilled local artists to create luminaries that are made by hand with a focus on flawless detail. The collection is elegantly inspired by nature & incorporates materials that deeply resonate for her such as quartz crystal, semi-precious gems, exotic skins & Lucite. The collection is also profoundly influenced by Katherine's passion for travel, jewelry, painting & flea market vintage.
