After humble beginnings in the hospitality industry and a one-year apprenticeship with Stephen Sills, Samuel Amoia has emerged as one of New York City’s most promising interior and furniture designers. Having envisioned masterfully layered residences and five-star hotels from Malibu to Belize that embody a “rough glamour” approach, the Samuel Amoia Associates founder now tries his hand at model units for the Hayworth, a forthcoming Upper East Side development, where his self-taught sensibilities flourish with style and panache. CovetED is here to let you know all about the designer, are you ready? Come and find out more about the projects!
In 2015 Amoia launched a groundbreaking furniture collection, AMOIA Studio which features a collaborative line of sculptural furniture and lighting made of natural materials.

In the course of human history, people have believed in the power of various stones and crystals to treat and strengthen our mental, emotional or physical states. These materials all come from a unified and inspiring source – Earth. Respecting the innate beauty of these minerals and their metaphysical properties, while exploring our appreciation for geometry and iconic twentieth design – has resulted in our newest collection – MINERALITY. Combining the brother duo of Samuel Amoia’s vision for design, colour, texture and furniture with sculptor Dominic Amoia’s conceptual use of materials and original casting process, AMOIA Studio presents an innovative, cutting-edge approach to furniture and design.
