About

Jae Omar, the founder and creative force behind Jae Omar Design brings a unique sensibility to his work as one of the emerging forces in contemporary design. Taking a conceptual approach to design challenges, his inspiration comes from the natural world and our unbreakable relationship with it. 

“I’m in constant awe of how elements in nature are so fiercely independent and yet so completely inter-dependant. The sky, mountains, sand and trees: Each part not only survives within but contributes to the delicate balance of the larger picture. My entire life in design is trying to achieve that.”

Originally from Boston, Omar lived for several years in Europe, spending his free time studying classic architecture and design. Later moving to Southern California, he discovered a love of the region’s mountains and desert environs, along with the philosophical foundation of Minimalism. All of these influences have come together in his unique design style, which redefines the boundaries between art and design, passion and purpose.

Omar maintains an active interior design business and the Jae Omar Design furniture collection. He also serves as creative director of Sonobath, a company he founded in 2008.

His work has been featured in Interior Design Magazine, Architectural Digest, Contract Magazine, Las Vegas Home and Design, Hospitality Design, K+BB, California + Home and Design, Phoenix Home & Design, and Dwell.
