Michael Aram's limited edition sculptures are handmade artistic explorations inspired by objects and ideas which capture Michael's imagination. The Sculptures are individually crafted so that no two pieces are ever exactly alike.
The Moon Gates are inspired by traditional round passageways found in Chinese landscape architecture which act as entry and exit points to the garden. The circular elements are symbolic of the idea of completion, representing and celebrating the cohesiveness of the family, as members pass through the gate to return home. Another interpretation is that, as the moon, the opening is symbolic of the cycle of life, and renewal as the full moon marks wholeness and is suggestive of new beginnings.
"I love thinking of these sculptures as a portal into nature. By looking at the moon gate, I am reminded of the delicate balance between man and nature, and my need for connection between my home life and the beauty and abundance of nature."

Chief Design Officer and Founder
I have had a love for design since I can remember. I worked as a Home Décor and Furniture buyer for the prestigious Fortunoff in New York while in college, and continued as a buyer there for 14 years until I left to begin my design business. My dream was to one day bring my love for both retail merchandising and interior design together, and alas, Splurge was born!
While nothing compares to the experience of being in our retail space in Pittsburgh, our website is a collection of our favorites from the shop.
I truly hope that you enjoy spending time perusing the site as much as I enjoy bringing it to you!
THIS is the store I visit when I want to treat myself or someone special. Splurge has the most beautiful and uniquely curated items. The staff is very friendly and are there to help if needed ... otherwise you can look through the store at your own leisure. It's so enjoyable and I always leave in a great mood! This is a gem of a store and I love it!
