Our History

Paul and Jackie Bach acquired M. Lavine Design Workshop in 2005, realizing their dream of owning a business that beautifully combined their individual skill sets and experiences. Like the pieces they create Paul and Jackie are blended perfectly to provide the optimal results for their clients. M. Lavine Design Workshop was founded by Marcia Lavine in 1976. Acquiring the company brought Jackie’s vast corporate background and Paul’s expertise in construction technology together. The Bach’s, with their skilled team, provide a new generation of M. Lavine Design Workshop clients with high quality, custom, decor and fixtures at the value they deserve.


Marcia Lavine had a vision to create a design company using decorative textiles with an artistic flair. The company would initially cater to specialty clients who were seeking unique décor, as well as fixture design that placed an intentional focus on excellence in execution. In 1985, M. Lavine Design Workshop was the first to use perforated metal in the creation of custom designed fixtures.

In 2004, a friend recommended M. Lavine Design Workshop as a company Jackie should consider acquiring. After a close look at M. Lavine it became clear that by combining both their strengths, her achievements in business with Paul’s experience in construction technology, the M. Lavine Design Workshop was an excellent opportunity. Since acquiring the company in 2005 they continue to build on the solid foundation of excellence and innovation.


It may sound cliché to say the company desires to establish beneficial and enjoyable relationships with their clients, but for M. Lavine Design Workshop it is the absolute truth. Many companies strive for those types of relationships but the team at M. Lavine Design Workshop makes it happen every single day. Combining these ideals, the talented and highly skilled staff, and also the investment in innovative machinery provides the right ingredients for continued client satisfaction. These tools allow M. Lavine Design Workshop to partner with exclusive designers and retailers, guiding them from conceptual drawings to design, to manufacturing, and through final production.

There is no substitute for the innovative ideas, exciting concepts and unique designs that result from this close collaboration with our customers. Inspiration is often born through many sources, the clean lines of industrial architecture, organic shapes in nature, or simply walking through stores, restaurants, and trade shows. These experiences provide the spark that leads to a finished fixture or décor. To meet our strict standards, each fixture is designed to be both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

M. Lavine Design Workshop continues to grow and innovate in order to meet the changing needs of our clients. We remain focused on seeking out ways to stay on the cutting edge of technology, and continue as a leader in the industry. The company was founded with a vision, and we have a vision for the future as well. We appreciate our clients and they provide the light for a bright future. We understand that we must focus on earning their trust, and we do so by collaborating closely with them from concept through production. Together, we create custom fixtures that promote their brands with both functionality and aesthetics. We also realize that each fixture or décor item must provide a great return on their investment, and we work hard to make sure that happens for them with each and every piece. Our mission is to always deliver the best custom fixtures and décor in the world, and we know it is our clients, and the manner in which we treat them, that will make that a reality.
