Trained as an architect with a degree from Illinois Institute of Technology, Marshall Erb focuses on the architecture of every space he designs. He pays close attention to scale and proportion, as well as to function and comfort. With a vast knowledge of art, antiques, and textiles and an appreciation for excellent craftsmanship, he curates and edits the selections in close collaboration with his clientele to create a unique collection that flows from room to room.
His attention to detail and listening skills are greatly appreciated by clients who enjoy his ability to take away the stress associated with most construction and design projects. The ultimate goal for Marshall and his team is that each project is a perfect reflection of the homeowner’s taste and lifestyle.
"Whether traditional or modern, city or country, a home should be a place that functions beautifully. We create homes that stand the test of time and trend.” -Marshall Erb
Furniture design is an integral part of his practice and a vast majority of the pieces featured in his work are designed specifically for each project. Custom furniture allows Marshall to perfectly attune the furnishings to his design vision and to create the individualized and unique environments for which he is well known.
He launched his interior design firm in 1998 and promptly established a diverse clientele in Chicago. Recognition, publication and new commissions across the country and internationally soon followed and he and the team at Marshall Erb Design love the challenges and aesthetics that each locale brings to a home.
