Steve Maturo is cofounder of MUSEO and began his career in the furniture industry in the late 70’s (as a youngster) after working for several years in management with Gucci (as a toddler). Steve believes that this initial exposure to fine Italian design at Gucci was the catalyst for his passionate respect for outstanding Italian design in furniture, lighting and accessories. After 30+ years in this business, Steve continues to seek out and make available to the Midwest the best in classic modern European furniture and lighting design, and is continually on the lookout for new emerging talent. Steve enjoys traveling, whether it is across the globe or across the state lines of Kansas and Missouri.
