His efforts have been largely successful, as the company name has become synonymous with exquisite taste, while achieving multimillion-dollar revenues.
Just as every great triumph has an inspiring conception, so does Merry & Modern. Its name comes from Mr. Iatsentyi’ s fondest childhood memories, most of which are centered around the festive season in his homeland, Ukraine. He wanted to bring unique holiday decor to Australia, where availability of these products was limited, but at the same time, he wanted to unique, exclusive products that were more refined and upmarket. To that end, Mr. Iatsentyi traveled the globe in search of the right designers who embodied his ideology that “only the best is good enough.” That endeavor resulted in the acquisition of distinctive, limited edition pieces as well as long term relationships with artists from Portugal, Italy, Germany, and France, among others, so that the Merry & Modern catalogue is assured continued growth.
Merry & Modern had grown exponentially, reaching consumers around the world and taking its rightful place among the premier retailers in the industry.
