Jason Claire

Born in New York City, Jason was interested in art and design from the start. He became a commissioned abstract painter in high school and then triple majored in art, art history, and pre-medicine at Duke University. Between 2003 and 2014, Jason opened and grew Vastu in Washington DC which became a leading modern furniture retailer, art gallery, and interior design firm. He then moved to Switzerland with his husband and traveled to 60 countries during the following 5 years. With a renewed passion and evolved design aesthetic, Jason returned to the US and partnered with Sarita to form Interior Matter in 2019. Jason stepped back from Interior Matter in 2023 to focus on a new venture related to global travel. He continues to be the creative director of Interior Matter’s monthly design newsletter, What Matters.
