Furniture on display at Minima


Minima has been Philadelphia’s premier design showroom for over 20 years. Featuring contemporary furniture, lighting and home accessories. Minima specializes in designing beautiful interiors from its flagship Old City showroom.

Owners Eugenie Perret and Michael Schmick believe in the power of design, in its ability to inspire people and their spaces. They provide a focused approach in translating their client’s vision into meaningful interior design expression.

Their team’s experience, training and talent direct Minima’s mission of providing a full-service interior design resource, and is dedicated to the highest level of customer service and satisfaction of both local clients and those further afield.

“On the same street where our founding fathers walked, clients can see, touch, and feel today’s styles made with old-world quality designed to last a lifetime.”

Informed by Italian and German craftsmanship, Minima goods are crafted by family-owned manufacturers and artisans who share the couple’s passion for design and obsession with quality. “Exclusive collaborations with brands like Minotti and Porro mean our furnishings are available only in showrooms—never online—and include infinite customization options,” explains Perret.

While Minima showrooms are open to the public on Saturdays, appointments are required during the week, ensuring personal attention. “We love connecting people with happiness at home through luxury furnishings,” Perret adds. “This isn’t just our livelihood. It’s our life and our passion.”
