Meet the Designer

Zach Mitchell

HeadshotBorn and raised in the suburbs of Pittsburgh, PA, Zach Mitchell has always exhibited a passion for the arts.  While earning his BFA at the Academy of Art University’s School of Interior Architecture and Design, Zach launched his career, working as a Design Assistant for San Francisco design firm, Hepworth + Howard.

Shortly after graduation, Zach returned to the east coast, eventually settling in New York City.  During this time, he enhanced his portfolio working as a designer with Lily Z Design in Manhattan.  It was not long before Zach added textile and product design to his unique set of skills. In 2013, he launched his first home accessory line–pillows inspired by the iconic Manhattan skyline and the soft lines of ikat textiles. In 2014, the line was featured in a Houzz editorial idea book celebrating global décor and the growing popularity of ikat design.

In his designs, Zach strives to strike a balance between contrasting elements to create spaces which are functional and visually appealing.  He believes that good design is both thoughtful and thorough. It should elicit emotion and set the stage for gracious living.

Zach Mitchell is thrilled to bring his design experience back to his hometown as the lead designer and Design Center Manager at Penhollows in Shadyside. For more information or to schedule a complimentary, in-home consultation, please call (412) 665-0767, or email
