orn in Romania, Mica Ertegun left the country after the Russian occupation. She spent one and a half years in Switzerland and Paris before moving to Canada and finally settling down in New York after marrying founder and chairman of Atlantic Records Ahmet Ertegun in 1960.

In 1967 Mica started MAC II with her friend Chessy Rayner designing residential and commercial projects both in the United States and abroad. These designs created by MAC II have been published in House & Garden, Elle Decor, Architectural Digest as well as international magazines.

Mica has served on the board of the New York City Ballet, Archives of American Art and is currently on the board of the World Monuments Fund, Oxford's Ertegun House and Jazz at Lincoln Center.

MAC II was founded in 1967 by Mica Ertegun and the late Chessy Rayner. After 40 years, MAC II is widely considered oneof today's preeminent firms in the field.

The firm's particular talent is in the mixture of antique and contemporary aspects of their designs. Thus, the use of importantantique furniture, modern pieces and whimsical items of no great value. This applies to all other parts of their design, for example, the use of an antique fabric on a modern chair, an antique carpet in a modern setting, or the use of old Kilims to upholster new sofas, etc. The result is always serene, uncluttered, yet elegant environments. One is always wonderfully
surprised by these unexpected combinations, they render each project unique. The firm has followed this model for over 40 years, and it continues to serve them well.

Clients are predominantly of the very well-established, including many top echelon business people and commercial enterprises including Bill Blass, Warner Communications, Safra National Bank, Keith Richards, Henry Kravis, Mr. and Mrs. Michael Eisner, Mr. and Mrs. James Buffett, Mr. and Mrs. William Acquavella, and HRH Princess Firyal
of Jordan, among others.
