Owner of Upper West Side Residence

Moving to New York for my MBA was a big step in my life, and I wanted a simple, comfortable home that I could entertain in, but that would be a little haven for me to work / study in. Lea was very understanding of my needs, of my aesthetic and my budget. We found the perfect pieces together, and she helped me style it in such a way that my apartment felt homey, but without accumulating too many things that I would eventually need to pack up and move. All in all she was understanding and was able to put my vision into reality. A dream to work with. 


Owner of Kips Bay Residence

After an initial meeting to discuss the project, I decided to work with Léa. I was starting over in life, and basically had a blank slate to work with. I asked Léa to design my entire space for me. I was, and still am, completely blown away by the results. Everything fits together in my apartment. There is no wasted space, and everything flows together seamlessly.


Owner of Financial District Residence

Lea was amazing to work with and we were blown away with the final product. She immediately understood our vision, provided the best guidance on how to maximize our budget and extremely responsive. Her patience to make sure I was comfortable with each piece combined with her creativity, showed me that I could go pair furniture and art in ways I never imagined. Lea transformed our empty apartment into a dream and cannot wait to work with her again.


Owner of Union Square Residence

Lea was an amazing resource to me during our apartment renovation. She helped me through every step of the process, from selecting the right materials to drafting the design drawings and working with our contractor to ensure all the work was performed to spec and of the highest quality. I wholeheartedly recommend Lea. We had a great experience!
