Seanne Murray and Kathyann Saleem, co-founders of The Risto Group ("Risto"), a New York City based design and project management firm, announced today the firm's debut at the 2008 Architectural Digest Home Show. Risto designed a space (Booth #746) that highlights home entertainment and lighting. The Home Show features New York's most prominent designers and architects.

We wanted to create a space that would emphasize our ability to harness a variety of resources to bring a well-designed vision to life

    "The space illustrates Risto's ability to collaborate effectively with other professionals to create functional, beautiful, highly aesthetic interiors that represent the homeowner's vision," said Murray. Some of the highlights of the space include a custom designed entertainment cabinet, built by M. Citko Architectural Woodworking, featuring a unique use of zebra wood; a Pioneer Elite Kuro 1080p plasma television, featuring Blu-Ray and Bohlender-Graebener speakers employing patented planar ribbon technology, selected and professionally installed by IntraHome Technologies ("IntraHome"); and elegant lighting from The Lighting Showroom.

"The design is both contemporary and tranquil in nature. It reflects Risto's philosophy that one's home should be a sanctuary, a place of refuge," said Saleem.

The team focused on identifying the right mix of talent and services to meet a client's needs. "We wanted to create a space that would emphasize our ability to harness a variety of resources to bring a well-designed vision to life," said Murray.

"We enjoy working with Risto to integrate sophisticated home technology effectively into exquisite design," said Steve D'Addone of IntraHome.

The Architectural Digest Home Design Show runs March 6-9 at Pier 94.
