Suzanne B. Allen & Company Design, LLC
The Firm offers:
Inspired by her 25 years of "digging" in Europe, Suzanne Allen has developed a style that offers a uniquely appealing combination of classical proportion, romantic curves, sumptuously sculptural surfaces, and a subtle palette of color and texture. Designs are conceived and executed with unusual and extensive detailing of everything from architectural woodwork to upholstery, practical kitchen design and luscious gardens.
Suzanne is among the few designers with a strong decorative arts training and sensitivity to architectural integrity; she not only understands interior decoration, but how to put it together in a fresh and unexpected way with architecture, furniture, light, and ergonomics. The result is design with an easy, distinctive, graceful and handsome elegance, with a depth and substance clients savor for years.
Suzanne Allen began her career as a designer at age 6; her early training in antiques, decorative arts and design began the next year. Her professional career began at McMillen, Inc. in New York, where she worked with Louis Rey and Betty Sherrill. Her design projects have often involved complete interior gutting and redesign, and have ranged from the design of workspaces and trading floor with fiber optics for Manufacturers Hanover Trust Bank in New York to the interior design of the Washington residence of a senior Saudi Prince.
Suzanne Allen founded the Firm in New York in 1980 to provide a full service design team devoted to delivering the details of planning, execution, and service, as well as the inspiration needed to conceive and deliver the highest quality design. Great style, always with a subtle but unusual twist, and a commitment to quality and service has enabled the Firm to quietly build a customer list for its Furniture which includes most of the top interior designers in the U.S., as well as a widely admired interior design practice.
The firm's interiors and furniture design have been featured in publications including: House & Garden, House Beautiful, Elle Décor, Veranda, Southern Accents, Atlanta Magazine, Atlanta Homes, and The New York Times.
