Founded in 2015, Rebel House is a collective specializing in the creation of couture environments. We craft our design work to tell a story unifying utility with striking decor.

Our team cares about setting the mood. We’re furniture plan aficionados, purveyors of the perfect pattern, seekers of the undiscovered artist, and we’ll wager some of the best furniture finds are vintage.

We are here as your partner to imbue some badass originality to your environment. We'll collaborate to craft a vision, inform you on options, and help set your stride on this journey. Our team is so very flattered to have the chance to work with you.

While at AJCP, Marli also worked on the ground-up construction of Graduate Oxford Hotel, the redesign of rooftop bar J.
