Curated, not cluttered. “Mercato Place was created to make the work of interior designers and architects easier,” said Ray Sayers, President and Founder of Mercato Place. “CURATOR adds to that mission. We want to take the pressure off the design community. Everyone has been busy; everyone has been juggling more. Our drive to further simplify the process of specifying products led to the creation of CURATOR. From the day we launched Mercato Place, our message has been ‘curated, not cluttered.’”
