Our Leaders
Allison is an avid traveler with a passion for nature and all it offers. She loves to be anywhere near the water, boating, sailing, snorkeling, fishing and paddle boarding. She's even enjoyed cage diving with great whites in South Africa (and has incredible photos to prove it)! Allison fully embraces an active lifestyle and loves playing a round of golf or catching a ride on her Peloton.

Zita's biggest joy in life is her family—her young daughter, Siena, and her husband, Parker. When she's not busy keeping her mind, business, and health in tip-top shape, Zita loves volunteering with Siena in the local community on the weekends. Two of their favorite organizations are Christ Fellowship and Loggerhead Marinelife Center.

Check out Décor House

The great news just keeps coming! My newest Allison Paladino Collection for E.J. Victor gallery has opened in Coral Gables, Florida at Décor House Furniture, during the gala opening of Décor House’s new design center and showroom last month.

The South Florida social schedule is always a whirlwind of excitement during December, but this was a party to remember! Co-sponsored by Décor House Furniture and Ferguson Bath, Kitchen and Lighting Gallery, it rained like cats and dogs the night of the opening, but the weather did nothing to dampen the spirits of the more than 500 special guests who enjoyed the sneak peak at the new space, great music and champagne. It was a wonderful opportunity for me to catch up with many of my good friends in the design community and get personal feedback on my furniture designs.

Owner Pepe Rodriguez is rightfully proud of the new space and was just as excited about the turnout for the event. Plus, he said he expects my soft modern furniture designs to really resonate with Décor House’s design-conscious customers.

I’m honored by his confidence and thrilled to have a new venue for everyone to see my work, particularly in such a fabulous store. Whether you’re in the business or just love great design, Décor House is well worth a visit. Find it at 4119 Ponce de Leon Blvd., Coral Gables, FL 33146, 305-448-6200.

Allison and the banner outside of Fine Art Lamps! A very exciting time!

Here is Allison showing the watch battery size dim-able LED bulb. “It was fun showing it to customers to see if they could figure out what it was!!! It is hard to believe that this tiny little bit can illuminate the glass hand cut dichroic glass so beautifully and at the same time be practical to light a space! Because LED’s are fairly new in such a decorative fixtures it really is ground breaking!”

Allison’s new lighting fixture was inspired by her love for jewelry and exotic materials like rock crystal and quartz and the Art Deco period!

In addition to her new line with Fine Art Lamps, Allison continued to wow the crowds with a stunning new showcase in the EJ Victor Showroom.

All of us here at EJ Victor could not be happier to welcome such a creative talent, Kelly Wearstler to the family!

Maison Objet Show | Miami, Florida

May 12, 2015 was a very proud day Allison got to share with her parents! Having her new collection front and center at the Fine Art Lamps space in Miami Florida just off the coat tails of the initial launch at the spring furniture shows in Milan Italy and High Point North Carolina, was an incredible feeling!

“I could have never done this collection without the creative and talented force at Fine Art lamps including Frank Englesby, the head of the glass department. This man also brought my vision of rock crystal in glass a reality! Way to go Frank as well as Ian Thorton, head of design too!”

Allison also shared this moment with some of her fellow colleagues from the Design Center of the Americas: left to right Gary and Melissa from John Rosselli, AP and Andrew from Carriage House.
