FORBES MASTERS is a full-service Atlanta-based interior design team that specializes in curating the essence of you or your brand into custom-tailored residential and commercial spaces. Helmed by acclaimed young designers Tavia Forbes and Monet Masters, the firm specializes in collaborating to conceptualize and plan spaces, manage projects and contractors, and source and stage custom furnishings for a variety of clients. Both notable designers in their own right gaining attention and acclaim, Monet and Tavia met when their paths overlapped on a project. Even though Monet was making her exit and Tavia was coming on board to wrap the project, each recognized something unique in the other. The two established a professional friendship which expanded to acting as an assistant on each other’s projects. When Tavia trusted Monet enough to stand in on a client meeting for her, the two decided to officially join forces.

Both share an affinity for bold, eclectic designs that marry the vision, personality, and lifestyles of their clients to become personalized and infused with each client’s unique fingerprint. But as individuals, each brings unique strengths to their projects. Tavia brings her business background to craft client budgets and keeps spending in line as well as spearheading meetings, proposal presentations, and mood boards. Tavia also has a gift for personal connections and spends time getting to know clients on a personal level. Monet is the consummate taskmaster, who oversees project logistics, manages contractors and organizes installations, working behind the scenes to make sure everything is in order. With her design school background, Monet takes the reigns on renderings and floor plans.

“Home” is the new retreat. As more savvy consumers, clients seem to be more inclined to embrace their personal styles and we are finding that clients want to create more personal activity spaces– home offices, theaters, gyms, saunas, and meditation rooms vs swagged-out guest suites. This realization at your home is YOUR home, to be enjoyed by you and your family, will live on long after the pandemic.”
