Husband and wife design team Marcia Zia and Paul Priven, are the creative collaborators who formed Zia•Priven in 1999 after first working together in the film industry. It was there that Marcia (an Emmy-nominated set decorator) and Paul (a first-assistant movie director) were captivated with the true potential of lighting. They embarked on a journey to pursue their passion and create their own signature style of contemporary, extraordinary lighting. The Zia•Priven aesthetic redefines modern glamour with a nod to the couple’s Hollywood roots.
Zia•Priven has been privileged to collaborate and work with some of the world’s foremost Interior Designers including Jamie Drake, Mark Zeff, Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz and Geoffrey Bradfield. Past projects include the Fontainebleau Hotel Miami, Grand Hotel Stockholm, Four Seasons Resorts Santa Barbara and Wynn Macao, including many high profile hotels, restaurants, show houses and private residences. Their work has been featured internationally in over 200 design publications including Interior Design Magazine, Architectural Digest, AD Italia, Elle Décor, House Beautiful, the New York Times, LA Times, the reference text Ultimate New York Design, numerous design blogs including Decor8, Apartment Therapy and Design Sponge, as well as a live interview on the CBS Early Show.
