Charles Pavarini III, Founder, President
As grandson of Charles Pavarini, Sr., Charles Pavarini III has reinterpreted the legacy of the Pavarini Construction Company, known for creating historic landmarks including the Seagram Tower, the United Nations, the State Theater at Lincoln Center, and numerous other landmark buildings in New York City and throughout the world.
Pavarini’s design style has evolved into a highly poetic blend of traditional and contemporary design elements, carefully developed from a strong interior concept. All of his projects hinge around a powerful central design theme and maintain a certain ‘vision’ which is always dramatically executed given Charles’ keen sense of color, style, and use of lighting as a ‘design tool’. Having sat on the board of directors of the Designer’s Lighting Forum of New York for twenty-eight years, he has a refined approach to interior design always staged with strong focal points and exacting lighting technique to harness the artistic and architectural vernacular of the spaces he designs. His extensive experience in the Performing Arts as performer, costume designer and set designer qualify him to conceive projects of any scale and proportion with great dignity and an unmatched passion for mood.
For the Fortieth Anniversary of the Kips Bay Decorator Showhouse in March 2012, Charles was invited to participate in the Kips Bay Decorator Showhouse and contributed with “Black, White and RED All Over”, an iconic minimalist contemporary bedroom in-keeping with the aesthetic of the new high-rise condominium venue. In March 2009, in honor of Albert Hadley, Charles Pavarini III Design Associates Inc. (CPDA) was also invited to participate in the 37th Annual Kips Baby Decorator Showhouse. “The Lounge”, a massive 25’x40’ room, embodied all of the concepts of his ‘vision’. Charles also participated in 2006 with his sumptuous bedroom “Buonanotte” and in 2003 with “Cabin 17: A Luxury Stateroom on a Private Yacht”. The press quickly caught-on to his achievements with each appearance, and articles were published nation-wide in The Washington Post, The Daily News, The New York Times, and many others. A veteran showhouse designer, he has appeared in over 25 Showhouses throughout his 30-year-long-career.
Jon Randall Tarasuk currently holds the Vice-President Position at Pavarini Design, Inc. based in NYC and Paradise Valley, AZ. His strong private-school education at Chase Collegiate School, The Taft School, Boston College, and The New York School of Interior Design has led him toward his dedicated career path in Design. Having mounted over 19 major exhibitions including the prestigious Kips Bay Decorator Showhouse 5 times and both Residential and Commercial projects nationally, his background and experience make him a highly consummate professional on many levels. Since Randall joined the firm in 1998, Pavarini Design has won 14+ design awards for excellence given by ASID, IIDA, IFDA, & International Property & Travel. On a daily basis, Randall manages construction projects, coordinates project development, and interacts with all project tradesmen. He plays an avid role in materials and finishes specification as well as procurement of furnishings and artwork traveling both nationally and internationally to source and share great product for a discerning clientele base. He has been a leader in the design of the company image and web presence while he maintains the roles of company author and controller. On a regular basis, Randall writes, reviews, and revises all company correspondence letters and journal entries. Furthering his eye for design, he is a member of the Designers Lighting Forum of New York (DLF-NY) and the International Furnishings and Design Association (IFDA) which feeds his passion for creativity within the field.
At a more personal level, Randall has other attributes which contribute to his demeanor. He is a confident and effective public speaker and enjoys contributing to panel discussions and seminars. For the past twenty-five years he has maintained an interest in photography and has always had an understanding of seeing design ‘through the lens.’ This hobby has taken him from New Zealand to Africa on photographic safaris, learning and appreciating other cultures and lifestyles.
To conclude, Randall is obsessed with the culinary arts and has a great passion for entertaining. He has a wealth of experience and an almost peripatetic lifestyle which all contribute to his enchanting career as a passionate Interior Designer.
