After ten years in the fashion industry, Michael Moloney turned his design concepts to homes in 1993. Blending the new and the practical with the timeworn charm of things not exactly perfect has been Moloneys look from the beginning of his design career.
Twelve years ago, the Palos Verdes, California native set out to combine his love of shopping and knowledge of design to open a new type of antique store in Redondo Beach. Le Garage was born, combining vintage treasures found at flea markets all over the country, new accessories and giftware. Moloneys eclectic, fresh approach to decorating took off and, a few years later, he opened Maison Luxe in Manhattan Beach, California, taking the original look to the next level, with all things luxurious from France and Italy, where he travels several times a year.
Moloneys television credits include Christopher Lowell, Next Door with Katie Brown, Kitty Bartholomews Youre Home, HGTVs Designers Challenge, and he is currently starring in Clean House on the Style Network, featuring speedy home makeovers.
