About Global Home

Travel is Our Muse

Joseph Giamarese and Vivian Hung, founders and principal designers of Global Home, are a married globetrotting duo whose world-wide journeys have inspired their aesthetic and business acumen. What started as an eighteen month expedition around the world, grew into Global Home. Founded in 2003, Global Home is a brand which has encompassed several home furnishing stores, an online retail property, and an acclaimed Interior Design firm featured in many domestic and international publications such as the New York Times, Aspire Home and Design, New York Spaces, Decorations Singapore, Remodelista and many others.

Based in the Princeton, NJ, Global Home Interior Design services all of NYC, the Hamptons,  all of New Jersey, the greater Philadelphia area, and select projects throughout the United States and around the world.

The Global Home aesthetic is a textural and multi-layered experience which can best be described as “curated maximalism”.

Joseph Giamarese and Vivian Hung, founders of Global Home NYC

Globally inspired- As a couple, they have circled the world multiple times in search of new friendships, experiences, and ideas.  Along the way they have not only found sources for exciting interiors, but also developed an eye for how to bring aesthetics from different cultures together.
Curated, Not Designed- Global Home takes an individual approach to each project, listening intently to the requirements of each client, understanding how they live and how their space is used. Joseph and Vivian prefer the final product to feel organically assembled over time rather than “designed”. Global Home’s philosophy is to bring together different and distinct elements to give you a home like no other.
Unexpected Delight- Global Home’s goal is to bring a little surprise and a big smile to everyone who walks into their spaces.  They never want a room to feel expected.  It should reflect the depth of the person who commissions it and the world he/she lives in. 
Whole yet with room to grow- While their projects usually have a definitive Global Home “stamp”, the final result always feels like it belongs exclusively to the client. You want your home to feel complete but you want it to reflect the journey you’re on.  Global Home builds interiors that have a comfortable, modern, organic luxury that recognizes that life keeps on giving.  As time goes by, the additions to your home will feel right at home.
