orn in North Carolina, Britt Moran was exposed to classical furnishings from a young age through a family firm. After studying biology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, he moved to Milan to teach English before landing in interior design. The studio’s other half, Emiliano Salci, was raised in Arezzo, Tuscany. Salci was also immersed in design as a child, through his father’s modern furniture gallery. After inheriting the family business, he later took an art director position with Giulio Cappellini, working with famed designers Jasper Morrison and Tom Dixon.

In 2003, Moran and Salci came together to found DIMORESTUDIO. The name “Dimore,” which translates to “dwellings” in Italian, was chosen to encapsulate their vision for bridging ancient and modern worlds. Originally intended to outfit private residences, they soon began producing furniture in Italy, with a range of chairs, lighting, sofas and bookshelves.

The duo quickly earned a reputation for their meticulous, sumptuous pieces and interiors - rich with color and nearly academic in its historical references. Some of their most notable work includes the lighting installation at Ian Schrager’s Pump Room, and the interiors of the Paris restaurant Café Burlot, Paris’ Hotel Saint Marc and the Casa Fayette in Guadalajara, Mexico.
