Ted Maines _
Ted grew up in the New York metropolitan area and studied business management and accounting at Rutgers University while working part-time to focus on his passion as an interior design assistant. After working at a Fortune 100 company in management and finance for over twenty years, he re-integrated himself in the world of design, putting his passion to good use in the development of two downtown high rise buildings while working as the COO of HC Design & Development. Ted launched his first design firm in 2007, creating interesting and beautiful places for people to live, work and play. In 2012, he opened a new showroom in Winter Park and the firm was re-branded as Ted Maines Interiors.

His community service and affiliations include the Orange County Library System Board of Trustees, City of Orlando Historic Preservation Board, Board of A.R.A./Serenity House, Nemours Council, Orlando Museum of Art Acquisition Trust, UCF Flying Horse Press, Hope & Help of Central Florida, HRC Federal Club, and Equality Florida’s Governor’s Council.

Ted and Jeff are avid collectors of Modern and Pop Art, and are actively involved in the cause of Anti-Bullying, and were co-chairs of the 2012 Holocaust Center of Florida’s Dinner of Tribute. The dedication to his craft and the Central Florida community show through his passion for the latest and greatest in interior design.
