WOMEN BEHIND THE BRAND
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 in discovering and creating beauty has consumed my life since childhood.
While living in Austria and Italy, I pursued a Master Degree in Business, but all the while I was inspired by the beauty surrounding me. This ultimately led me to my next venture, in which I earned a degree in Interior Design. I began my own design firm, creating beautiful homes in Europe and South Florida. The new brand COMO Home & Design, launched with my dynamic partner Monica, allows me to chase even more beauty in so many ways from launching our own furniture line, selecting home accessories and designing interior spaces. My European heritage also remains a strong influence on my design and perspective.
My family has always been the center of my life. My husband and I just celebrated our 20th anniversary and have 3 sons. As a family, we spend our time between Palm Beach, Lake Wörthersee, 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 that I feel this is truly a blessing.
Join me in this creative process.
Monica K. Oberting, ESQ.
My recent move to Manalapan, Florida provides me the perfect change of pace and career. Having been a lawyer and Administrative Law Judge for over 20 years, 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!
