A black and white portrait of Nina Magon

8 Products Designer Nina Magon Relies on for Luxurious Interiors

The global aspirational style of world-class spas, resorts, and hotels is Houston-based designer Nina Magon’s stock-in-trade.

As principal of her namesake firm, Nina Magon has spent 14 years mastering materials that make commercial interiors feel luxurious. To ensure her vision of rich textures and seductive curves is universally read as lush, she draws on her extensive travels as a Canadian child born to Indian expats: “The country that inspired me most was India. Silks, chiffons, beadwork, metalwork. I understood that if India had so much to offer, I could learn more from exploring the cultures of other countries,” she says.

“Carved from a solid stone block, the table’s form straddles the line between sculpture and function. It’s a perfect conversation starter.”

“Comfort and sophistication were the goal when designing these barstools for the space. With a curved ridged back upholstered in this deep green and accented with a brushed bronze base, these barstools were the perfect fit.”
