A LIFESTYLE BRAND
HOME DECOR | GIFTS | FINE EUROPEAN FURNISHINGS
SURROUND YOURSELF IN BEAUTY AND ORIGINALITY
At COMO Home & Design we strongly believe that a home should feel collected and not decorated. With this mission in mind, we constantly travel throughout Europe in search for the best artisans in furniture, home decor, art and lifestyle. We handpick their creations, striving to offer a variety of exceptionally handcrafted objects, most of them exclusively. Our passion for beautiful designs and European heritage opens our clients a new shopping experience, which ultimately adds timeless and distinguished finishing touches to their homes to treasure over a long time.
Since our opening in 2018, our retail store, located on a famous shopping mile in the center of the town of Palm Beach, became a sought after destination for shopping unique gifts, finding new treasures for homes or for seeking professional help with decorating. Besides offered in our brick and mortar store, a thoughtful selection of products of our brand can be also purchased here online.
WOMEN BEHIND THE BRAND
FOUNDER | CREATIVE DIRECTOR | INTERIOR DESIGNER |
Since I can remember, my entire life has been dedicated to chasing beauty. Design, Art, Photography, Fashion, Furniture, Antiques, Finishes, Experiences, Journeys, and Relationships. My obsession with discovering and creating beauty has consumed my life since childhood.
While living in Austria and Italy, I pursued a Business Master degree and worked in the development business of high end residential homes with an international clientele. Inspired by the beauty of architecture and design during these years, ultimately led me to my next venture, in which I earned a degree in Interior Design. I launched my own design firm, creating beautiful homes in Europe and South Florida. The new brand COMO Home & Design, managed with my dynamic partner Monica, allows me to chase even more beauty in so many ways – from designing our own furniture line, selecting home accessories to designing sophisticated interior spaces with an European twist. My creative work is strongly defined by my heritage and the desire to create exceptional homes.
My family has always been the center of my life. My husband and I have 3 sons and just celebrated our 20th anniversary. As a family, we spend our time between Palm Beach, Austria, London and Geneva. We regularly travel the world, as there is always new beauty to discover and new inspirations to be found.
My obsession with chasing beauty will always be part of my life and I feel this is truly a blessing.
Join me in this creative process.
MONICA K. OBERTING, ESQ.
FOUNDER | DESIGNER |
My recent move to Manalapan, Florida provides me the perfect change of pace and career. Having been a lawyer and Administrative Law Judge, my experience provided me the strength and knowledge in any career path. Though an unconventional path to design, I have always had a passion and flair for style, culture, and lifestyle. Through travels with family and friends, I gained great insight into international cultures, products, purchasing, and market trends. Having designed several residents in NY and Florida, I grew fond of making a house a home and a reflection of one’s life and family. Timeless elegance is a passion and a pursuit.
I am truly blessed to be married to my husband, Greg for over 20 years. We have made it our family’s mission to travel and experience lifestyles from around the world with our wonderful three children. From Asia to Europe, I believe our styles and influences should represent the beauty that touches us. COMO offers beauty from around the world, not easily sourced and found. Meeting Andrea was the perfect friendship to begin, develop, and launch Como Home & Design.
We hope you enjoy COMO as much as we do!
