How We Think

LORNA GROSS Interior Design is a global boutique firm that’s aesthetic focuses on incorporating unique details and elements into designed spaces.  With an extreme appreciation for marrying quality and nuance, our interiors are dynamic and sophisticated. We enjoy layering elements that produce spaces that are visually appealing but also tactile and experiential. Many of our clientele are busy, active, well-traveled, and those who seek highly customized interiors.

We enjoy individualizing interiors to reflect our clients’ personalities and although we are very serious about executing a great product, we also prefer to preserve our humor (wit) along the way. LGID strives to take every project to the next level through superior design and a supportive customer experience.

We believe all of these components build the foundation for “An Elevated Design Experience”.

We take pride in our ability to create great design and also thoroughly manage the many moving parts associated with the design process so that we can provide a great concept without dominating our clients’ time.
