About Z Gallerie
Founded by Joe, Carole (Malfatti) and Mike Zeiden in 1979, Z Gallerie began as a small poster shop in Sherman Oaks, CA. Together the siblings operated the store during the day and framed posters at night in their parent’s garage while dreaming of stores that carried more than just poster art. Their vision was to put forth a collection of fashion forward and exclusive home furnishings, art and accessories at an affordable price. Today, more than 30 years later Z Gallerie stores are en ever-changing combination of stylish, traditional and contemporary designs. With 56 locations across the United States and an online presence, Z Gallerie, still lead by Joe, Carole and Mike, continues to inspire both professional and amateur interior designers alike. The company is headquartered in Los Angeles with additional buying offices in Berkeley.
