Spotlight On: Platemark

Interior design with art in its DNA.

In the world of printmaking, a platemark is the impression left on the edge of  an engraving by the pressure of the plate.  It’s regarded as a sign of quality and authenticity.  When you work with Platemark, you’ll see why the name is so perfect for the company.

Founded in 2006 right in the heart of Back Bay by Craig Tevolitz (long-time leader in the art community and a member of the Board of Advisers for the Museum of Fine Art), Platemark design’s mission is to create interiors that reflect their clients’ style.

Recently named Best of Boston 2018 for Contemporary Design by Boston Home and Boston magazine, Platemark designs interiors that help art collectors — new and seasoned — live with their art in the most beautiful possible way.  Each Platemark interior is a direct reflection of you, the client: your style and how you want to live.

For clients who are collectors, Platemark often incorporates solutions that museums and galleries use, such as art lighting, hanging systems, display casework, and art storage, into the design.

The interior design studio also helps clients through household transitions, whether it’s upsizing, downsizing, or combining households, helping couples to sensitively blend their tastes together.  For example, one of Platemark’s recent clients moved from a traditional family home in Harvard Square to a contemporary condo at the Ritz Carlton.  Their new space was smaller and not every piece from their former home would fit in the new home, physically and stylistically.  Platemark helped them to interpret their new space in a way that entirely embraced their taste, making it entirely their own.
