Recognized for his unique approach to design, Patrick Mele culls the best from the past and present to create environments that feel distinctly personal and timeless. 

With a degree in Art History and Cultural Studies from New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study, his aesthetic is informed by the intersection of art, architecture, the decorative-arts, fashion, and cultural shifts throughout history, which his work often reflects a keen understanding and appreciation of.

 His early professional experience was honed at some of America’s most iconic lifestyle brands including Ralph Lauren and Kate Spade, where Patrick played an integral role in the presentation of both companies’ aesthetic DNA across all flagship locations world wide. 

Starting in 2011, Patrick launched his namesake design firm and has worked on a wide range of highly acclaimed residential and commercial projects throughout the United States and Europe.

The firm’s work has been featured in Architectural Digest, ELLE Décor, Frederic, House Beautiful, New York Magazine, Domino, L’Officiel, and The Evening Standard, among others. Patrick has been named to the prestigious AD100 List as well as Elle Decor’s A List, and has also been recognized as one of “Five Designers to Watch” by Vogue, “The New Guard” by W Magazine, and “Designer to Watch” by Departures. 

As a natural extension to his design business, Patrick opened his first retail shop in his hometown of Greenwich, CT, in the fall of 2017. The shop features original creations designed by Patrick and artists he continually collaborates along with unique artisanal finds sourced from around the globe.

Patrick is based in New York City and Connecticut.
