Jim Marvin, the Man Behind the Sparkle
I’m always boasting about the interesting people and clients I have the opportunity to meet and work with in the auction industry, and this month I would like to tell you a little about my newest client and very interesting man, Jim Marvin.
Jim Marvin, of Jim Marvin Enterprises Ltd., Inc., is president of his own holiday, floral and direct import gift company. He is the artistic creator and designer of Christmas trends extraordinaire, and considered iconic in the holiday design industry for the past 30 years. From the moment I walked in to his design center in Dickson, Tennessee, I was completely surrounded with beautiful holiday décor from the Jim Marvin Collection, and it made me feel happy! As a matter of fact, we hear people sometimes frequent the Design Center just to feel better if they’ve had a bad day. It’s such a nice ambiance! Now let me tell you more about the man behind the collection.
Jim was invited to volunteer and design product for the White House during the 1997-2014 Christmas seasons. He was also involved in designing floral decorations for state dinners, special parties and Queen Elizabeth’s visit. In 2012, his decorated trees spanned from the Governor’s mansion in Nashville, Tennessee, the Ronald McDonald House in Little Rock, Arkansas to the White House in Washington, D.C.
The Jim Marvin Collection is a trademark line, which has been shown in both the national and international markets since 1980. Creation of the Jim Marvin Collection entails extensive travel to Europe, Asia, India and Japan. His ornament lines have been sold via prominent merchants including Horchow, Neiman Marcus, Barney’s and Better Homes and Gardens.
As a member of American Institute of Floral Designers, Jim has conducted seminars in the United States and Japan on creative design methods and innovative color presentations. He has enjoyed high visibility in the international market for many years with designed products for outstanding and prestigious clients around the world with projects in Japan, Brazil, Belgium, Ireland and Hong Kong.
