Moya Living Home Design
The typical perception of steel is industrial and utilitarian. While it’s true that steel was the material of choice for kitchen cabinetry at the turn of the 20th Century, due to its durability, cleanliness and “vermin proof” construction, the next iteration of steel in residential and hospitality environments is about beauty.
Moya Living is changing the story on steel’s relevance for home and hospitality use by creating beautiful, make-to-order pieces for kitchen and bath that unite function with expert craftsmanship and innovative designs to suit aesthetics ranging from relaxed to refined.
This “what’s old is new again” storyline is not strictly about resurrecting retro designs. Available in virtually any color palette and in matte, gloss or hammered finishes, Moya Living cabinetry and furniture affords architects and designers total creativity.
The home designs have been incorporated into a range of real estate projects from a Fifth Avenue apartment to a Laguna Beach cottage to the iconic Dakota in Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
Artist and designer Moya O’Neill, the co-founder and creative curator for Moya Living, brings a careful eye for blending timeless beauty with forward-thinking design as well as a commitment to promoting sustainability practices. Moya Living products are sought-after for their sustainability, durability and hypo-allergenicand non-toxic properties.
“There is a strong desire among forward-thinking designers and clientele to consider earth and health equally as much as beauty,” says O’Neill. “What steel has to offer in kitchen and bath applications – a balance of function and durability with beauty and warmth – truly sets it apart from a design perspective.”
