At Z Gallerie it's all about family. In 1979, three siblings, Joe Zeiden, Carole Malfatti, and Mike Zeiden opened a small poster shop in Sherman Oaks, California. This new form of art was growing in popularity at the time, and through hard work and long hours the young entrepreneurs thrived. Together they operated the shop during the day and framed the posters at night in their parents' garage. Before long, the three siblings had a number of stores, moved out of their parents' garage and began to conceptualize stores that carried more than just poster art. Their vision was to create a collection of fashion-forward and exclusive home furnishings, art, and accessories at an affordable price.
