Interior design has a powerful presence in our every day lives. Whether directly perceived or subliminally experienced, it has a direct effect on our psyches, bodies and human interactions. It guides (and misguides) us; a woven rug produces a haptic reaction underfoot, our spines conform to (or fight against) the arch of a chair back. The dialogue between human and interior is constant, inspiring and evocative. It is an opportunity to enhance human experience.
Our scope at LKI is focused on interior architecture, design and decorating, in the residential and boutique hospitality sectors. We draw on years of experience designing and managing high-end residential projects, having worked on homes in New York City, New Jersey, Connecticut, Nantucket, Florida and Aspen. Our work has been featured in House Beautiful, Domino, Dwell, and The New Yorker, amongst others.
