about jessica marx

Jessica Marx, founder of the award-winning J. Marx Atelier, approaches design from all angles. A degree from the USC School of Architecture anchors her in the principles and practice of design, while several years at top interiors firms both refined her aesthetic and honed her ability to manage high-profile projects.  

After serving on the teams behind such noted interiors as the Trump SoHo and the Thompson Hotel Beverly Hills, Jessica started J. Marx Atelier in 2010 to provide full-service interiors and brand identity work with a boutique-scale attention to detail. Most recently, J. Marx Atelier received first place honors in the Restaurant Design Awards from The American Institute of Architects Los Angeles. The firm's work on Bo Nuage Pastry Shop was selected from nearly 100 submissions in the Cafe/Bar category by a panel of judges that included esteemed restaurant critic Jonathan Gold.

For every project, Jessica draws from an abiding love of travel, culture, and fashion. She also calls on her keen eye for branding and product curation, which she sharpened while growing her personal web presence and expanding into custom furniture. From the arches of an ancient Moroccan courtyard to the colors of current runway collections, Jessica translates endless inspiration into unforgettable spaces with a unique blend of dynamic luxury and discerning style.
