Marc JohnstonCo-Owner
As the “Marc” of Marc Russell, furniture and design have been a part of Marc’s life for over two decades. “I believe in quality, affordability and excellence in every aspect of a project,” says Marc. These are the over-arching ideals upon which Marc Russell Interiors was built.

He made the move to Palm Springs in 1981. He was privileged to work at J. W. Bollman Furniture, which at the time was the most prestigious furniture and interior design business in the Palm Springs area.

In 2002, Marc and his business partner, Russell Parenti, started Marc Russell Interiors Design Studio. Marc recruited Michael Huard, formerly of Bollman Furniture, to join Marc Russell as their lead designer making Marc Russell the place to go for furniture and interior design in Palm Springs.

Russell Parenti Co-Owner
The “Russell” of Marc Russell, brings his own perspective as co-owner and designer. “Listening to the client is the key to success for my designs,” says Parenti. From his years in New York to his work with Amtrak, Russ has found his inspiration all around the United States. His first furniture store was with his sister selling antique furniture in Monrovia, California.

Today, that experience helps Russ focus on the goals of the client. The key is listening to the client. Listening allows him to create a design that matches the vision. That vision can be for the clients’ entire home, a single room or business environment.

“I love the unique quality of every client,” says Russ. Uniqueness inspires the space which can be Contemporary, Spanish, Tuscan or any styles. Creating a livable space that is unique to the client is the key to success with the Marc Russell team. With over 10 years of success as an interior designer, Russ has connected with clients by listening and delivering with premiere customer satisfaction.
