Jeff Fenton - Owner
Jeff began his career 25 years ago with Bloomingdale's department stores, and later Gap, Inc., where he held various managerial positions in both the corporate and field organizations including Manager of Product Communications, District Manager and Regional Manager for Pacific Northwest. With his partner Chris, he moved to Santa Fe in 2002 and opened IM Design Studios, a full-service interior and graphic design studio founded on the principal that design = individual connection. In 2009 Jeff joined ACC Fine Furnishings as Vice President of Design and was later promoted to Senior Vice President and General Manager of the company. Jeff's award-winning design work has been featured in numerous local and national publications. Opening Reside Home has been a life-long dream and ambition, combining Jeff's extensive retail background and his passion for inspired design into one complete package. He is privileged to work alongside his partner of 23 years Chris Martinez, as well as their new business partners and former clients, Kendra and Paul Henning.
Chris Martinez - Owner
Chris graduated with a BA in Elementary Education and spent the first 8 years of his career teaching in public schools. Realizing a passion for design and photography, he went back to school and graduated with another degree in graphic design. In addition to having been a partner in IM Design Studios, Chris has held numerous management positions with high-profile print houses across the country. Most recently Chris held the position of Digital Creative manager for ACC Fine Furnishings. In addition to his considerable graphic design talent and knowledge of technology, he is a passionate photographer, having been represented by Verve Gallery in Santa Fe. Chris holds a U.S. Patent on a proprietary photographic process called "Auragami." Inspired by Japanese paper-folding techniques, he digitally folds layers of photographic portraiture, revealing what many have called a Rorschach-inspired image laden with deeper meanings. Along with Jeff and their dogs, Chris relocated to Santa Fe and has never looked back, ever inspired by the landscape and artistic community that is New Mexico.
