Chris & Michelle

Chris & MichelleOld World Designs is being recognized as an emerging leader in: custom design, manufacture and installation of high quality cast limestone architectural treatments including commissioned fireplace mantelpieces and surrounds; the artistry of authentic Venetian plastering.

The company was founded in 2004 by Chris and Michelle Lobato.  Chris is self taught in design of architectural stone treatments and mantelpiece design.  Discovering this gift later in life than usual, he launched Old World at 51.  The company is flourishing under his guidance and vision with new products and designs being developed regularly.

Michelle's grace and professionalism in client relations was honed in the airline industry as a top level corporate flight attendant for many Fortune 500 company owners and founders.

Chris credits his appreciation of architecture to his father and the family trips.  In his youth the family vacations always included exploring the churches and cathedrals of many cities and towns of the Southwest.

In her corporate career, Michelle flew all over the world, often for Roger Penske, Penske Corporation and Penske Racing.  Marrying in 2004, Chris and Michelle have enjoyed trips to several European countries, finding inspiration for Old World Designs, from one of the world's pinnacles of Antiquity.
