BROOKLINE MAGAZINE paint company | AUGUST, 2006
Brookline residents Mark and Sandra Kiss London are giving Martha Stewart a run for her money. In 1997, Sandra Kiss London and her husband, Mark London struck it big in the burgeoning internet business sector with their brainchild, Faux Like a Pro. What began as a wealth of resources for DIY-ers everywhere blossomed into a successful online and retail business. As the London's specialty faux finish products flew off shelves both real and virtual, there was more yet to accomplish.
A few years later, The Massachusetts Institute of Surface Design opened its doors to hundreds of enthusiastic faux finish students. Owned and operated by Faux Like a Pro, the school’s curriculum is ever expanding, accommodating the needs of artists who come from all areas of the country, seeking to learn the hottest finishes and design trends.
Discover how a small, niche based company emerged, evolved, and continues to stay on the cutting edge. Find out where Sandra Kiss London draws her inspiration from to keep creating her signature finishes, and just how Faux Like a Pro became such a runaway success.
