Home accessories brand Lunares, Inc. appoints industry veteran Sebastian Herald as its new Chief Executive Officer.

Lunares – the San Francisco-based home accessories brand founded by designer Nima Oberoi and best known for its range of highly sculptural hand-cast aluminum creations – has appointed Sebastian Herald as its new CEO. Herald hails from a long history of luxury brand building, earlier at jewelry giant, Cartier N.A. and most recently at Michael Aram, Inc., where he served as CEO and was instrumental in turning that house into one of the most influential in the gift and home industries.

“Sebastian brings a blend of industry expertise, business strategy and operational insights, filtered through a keen design understanding - a rare combination of skills" says Oberoi. “As a design company with a unique point of view, this critical perspective allows us to maintain the integrity of who and what we’ve always been while challenging ourselves to reach even greater heights.”

“I came to Lunares because my first love is working with artisanal brands,” says Herald. “The process of taking years of earnest and beautiful creative work and respectfully crafting it into a brand that is entirely built on its own history and vision is what I get the most fulfillment out of and where my abilities are best suited. I love Nima’s work and her creative perspective. It’s time to vividly tell that story to an even wider audience.”

Herald will be based in the company’s San Francisco office. For additional information, please call 415-621-0764 or email
