Husband-and-wife design team Marcia Zia (an Emmy-nominated set decorator) and Paul Priven are the creative collaborators who formed Zia·Priven in 1999. Though they left the entertainment industry, the Zia·Priven aesthetic is classically modern with a nod to the couple's Hollywood roots.
Their great love for vintage lighting and appreciation for lighting’s dramatic effects led them to create their own award-winning designs. Zia·Priven is known for Extraordinary Lighting—manufactured at their LA studio and featured in over 250 design publications worldwide. Their trade-only lines are highly sought after by the industry’s top designers, including hall-of-famers Jamie Drake and Lauren Rottet, Geoffery Bradfield, Mark Zeff, and Oscar de la Renta.
Precision machined metals are all hand finished and offered in a spectrum of standard or semi-precious plated finishes. A team of highly-trained artisans and master craftspeople produce hand-blown glass, brazed bronze, custom-tailored silk shades, and hand-strung quartz crystals with rigorous attention to detail.
"Bespoke lighting is always the icing on the cake for any project. Zia·Priven enables us to develop, refine, and execute a myriad of lighting options, par excellence."

In addition to their standard offerings, Zia and Priven want to give their clients the flexibility of choice, welcoming custom modifications, and original designs. By partnering with a client’s vision, Zia·Priven assures every fixture will bear the owner’s unique stamp of individuality.
