Interior, Period, + Exhibit Design

MPF Conservation offers interior design and/or exhibit design for house museums or private clientele. Both Mitchell and Kate Powell have extensive and varied strengths in the design industry.

Mitchell is excellent with period appropriate design for exhibits, period houses and other historical buildings.

Kate has both practiced and taught interior design. She has a degree in architecture from University of Southern California, and was a core design instructor at University of California at Los Angeles for eight years before moving to Oregon.

MONTEREY PLATEA recent public design project was the NPS Crater Lake Science and Learning Center, which had a complete set of Imperial Monterey furnishings which MPFC conserved and restored as the basis for the design project. The historical Superintendent's house is now a working museum for scientists and students, MITCHELL HUTCHand so pieces had to be affordable and in keeping with the period, but, other than the Imperial furniture, were not authentic items from the era.

The dollars budgeted for the dinnerware, draperies, accessories and carpets was modest. LEATHER PILLOWMPFC found items to satisfy the design criteria + budget, which can be seen in the slide show on the Imperial Monterey Sofa, and in photos below, without stepping outside the financial constraints of the National Park Service's budget.

Items procured and/or created included drapes, iron drapery rods, reproduction donor plaque, rugs, plates, runners, pillows (both for the furniture and floor pillows to sit on), throws, lamps, and accessories.
