Debey Zito is a highly regarded furniture maker and interior-design consultant based in the San Francisco Bay Area.

With lush imagery from a recent trip to Japan, Debey will focus on elements of traditional Japanese architecture. She will touch on how these details have influenced a few of our most brilliant designers in Art Nouveau, Prairie, and Arts & Crafts. She will also refer to Japan’s influence in the Mid-Century Modern movement.

Debey Zito has been designing and building furniture for over four decades. Many of the pieces include carvings by her partner, Terry Schmitt. Increasingly, interior design work has become a larger creative focus.

Debey has lectured across the country on Furniture Design, Arts & Crafts Furniture, and Japanese Design.
