5 Towns design firm now rooted in Jerusalem


With an influx of Americans and Europeans traveling to Israel for business and pleasure, an increasing number of visitors are looking to put urchase a second home there. Having the assistance of a discerning adviser is a true asset.

Interior designer Jeffrey Mark of J. Mark Interiors is frequently asked to scope out potential spaces for his international clients. Through his twice-a-month trips to Israel, and around-the-clock virtual meetings with his clients via Skype, Mark has been able to successfully meet their needs from his Five Towns showroom. This spring, Mark is putting down his own roots in the heart of Jerusalem, with the opening of a J. Mark Interiors showroom at 22 King David St.

Since many people envision spending holidays and long vacations with their families and extended families in Israel, finding the right property can be a very personal experience for each purchaser. It can be difficult for some to visualize the spaces, especially when there is construction to be done.  Mark prepares floor plans and 3D drawings for his customers, often while still in the selection stages, to give them a glimpse of what their potential new home could look like.  

Today’s clients typically desire the perfect combination of sleek hotel amenities mingled with elements of the authenticity of Israel and rely on J. Mark Interiors to bring this vision to life. Mark and his team of designers spend countless hours assessing the specific needs and wants of each homeowner, ultimately creating a perfectly suited space.  

Mark often guides them through the entire process — from purchase and initial conception to completion, even architecture and construction.  Seeking out the most knowledgeable and reliable craftspeople in Israel, he works to keep projects on schedule.

J. Mark Interiors also offers full-service “turnkey” design services, covering all functional and decorative elements and every last detail — down to soap dispensers and floral arrangements.

After helping so many clients complete their homes in Israel through his flagship location for over 10 years, this new endeavor is the natural progression for Mark.

The new Jerusalem showroom will also serve as a resource for designers in Israel, allowing them access to global brands.

“I look forward to sitting down with my clients in the heart of Jerusalem and discussing their special projects,” says Mark, “I’m so grateful to help people actualize the dream of homeownership in Israel.”

J. Mark Interiors is located inside the Five Towns Design Center, 461 Central Ave. at the corner of Spruce Street, in Cedarhurst. Call 516-295-0856 or visit jmarkinteriors.com
