Michael Del Piero founded Michael Del Piero Good Design in 2007 based on three simple principals: Strive for balance. Create interiors as current as they are enduring, as sophisticated as they are approachable, and as unusual as they are beautiful. And take care of clients as if they are royalty, serving their needs and lifestyles above all else.
A curious soul, a world traveler, and one of the earliest vendors on 1st Dibs, Del Piero is known for her accomplished eye and uncommon knack for a serene and simple mix that bridges generations of style. Her distinct aesthetic fuses rough with luxurious and ancient with modern.
Her fresh approach to "the mix" has garnered accolades from a worldwide and most discerning clientele. Recognized by industry leaders, Michael has been touted by Metropolitan Home as a tastemaker, The New York Times as a style maven and in 2009 was honored with the distinguished "Ones to Watch" award presented by the Chicago Design Community.
Fueled by her global finds and an appetite for all things beautiful, in 2008 Michael opened her eponymous shop in Chicago's Bucktown neighborhood. Showcasing sculptural furniture, unusual objects and abstract art, the venue bows to the "never precious" style of its founder.
Michael's work has appeared in over 350 interior design blogs as well as national and regional publications such as Traditional Home, House Beautiful, The New York Times, The Chicago Tribune, and 1st Dibs Introspective who declared her work as "truly, one of a kind". Her projects are also featured in popular interior design books including House Beautiful's Kitchens, Chicago Spaces and the international publication, Visions of Design.
Prior to embarking on her interior design career, Michael spent two decades as an Executive Coach, consulting primarily for Fortune 500 companies. She raised two daughters on Chicago’s North Shore and resides between the Gold Coast neighborhood of Chicago and New York’s Hamptons.
