Louis began his career nearly three decades ago as a property manager for one of the countries top asset management companies. There he specialized in managing renovations of both commercial and residential properties, and his unique skills and talents began to evolve. His many responsibilities included the designing, planning, scheduling and budget implementation of large-scale projects throughout the country. During his tenure, Louis directed the maintenance and management of hundreds of residential and commercial projects .
Louis found that his true passion lay in the furniture design and restoration. To further his vision, moved to south Florida where he became a student at the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale. While attending school he launched his first company specializing in design and specialty finishes. His original twist on an age old art became very popular within the design community. Louis soon became known for his movement of organic styled textured finishes, and his work began making appearances in South Florida's most prestigious estates, hotels, night clubs, retail stores and luxury yachts. His work was recognized by such publications as Architectural Digest and South Florida Design. Already having established a reputation for his unique ability to bring interiors and finishes to new heights began taking on his own interior design clients, prompting him to open his first firm in 1994.
In 2002 Louis began gearing his focus to the hospitality industry in the Hawaiian islands, developing close relationships with some of the world's finest furniture manufacturers and suppliers, turning out the new gold standard in hospitality interiors and furnishings. Over the next decade Louis designed interiors and manufactured custom furnishings for both his own furniture and accessories boutique in Kauai and large exclusive resorts throughout the Hawaiian Islands. Crafting a style of design which incorporates the mindfulness of sustainability features with modern day elegance and comfort brought a more relaxed comfortable edge to his portfolio. Louis in his furniture design career has manufactured and serviced contracts valued in the tens of millions and importing hundreds of containers of custom residential and hospitality furniture for his clients, thus expanding his vast industry knowledge to new heights.
