Artemisia is a residential interior design firm and shop specializing in textiles, antiques, unique vintage and custom furniture, pillows and decor items for the home from the team of Rosemarie Padovano and Marcello Marvelli. Rosemarie is an artist and interior designer and Marcello is an art dealer and art historian from Florence, Italy. Together, they share a mutual love of art and design. Artemisia was founded in 2012 in New York City and moved to Old Lyme in 2017.

In the spring of 2018 they opened a destination shop in Old Lyme Connecticut featuring a selection of unique objects and furniture that reflect their design sensibilities as well as their sophisticated collection of pillows, placemats, and ottomans that are designed and produced by Artemisia. Featured in some of the most important décor magazines, they are a trusted resource for some of the finest interior designers worldwide. The Artemisia shop features a collection of antique fabrics (ikat, suzani, and European silk velvets) as well unique antique furniture, lamps, and objects selected with a discerning and fresh eye.

The shop is also the location of Studio Artemisia, a full service interior design firm led by Rosemarie and Marcello.  Together they create soulful interiors with a refined and artistic mix of modern and antique furnishings.  Vibrant colors and luxurious fabrics are paired with a cultivated selection of antiques, adding visual excitement and warmth to every project. Rosemarie and Marcello seek a cultured atmosphere in all they design, honoring both past and present.  They have designed residential interiors for clients in New York City, Westchester County the Dominican Republic and Connecticut from Fairfield County to New London. They are currently working on projects in Old Black Point, Essex, Lyme, and North Haven in Connecticut and New York City. 

Rosemarie and Marcello are currently restoring their 1755 colonial house and Olmsted Brothers historic garden in Old Lyme.
