Paris’ studio is located in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, where she works with a robust team to deliver on customized and tailored design to satisfy her clients’ specific needs, lifestyles and experiences. Before launching her firm in 2012, Paris had earned her degree in Interior Design from the University of Technology in Sydney, Australia. Upon graduating, she spent more than a decade fine-tuning her skills with designers and architects in Sydney and New York before setting out on her own to launch her namesake interiors firm. Since then, she has perfected the process of designing, drawing, specifying, and installing in order to successfully infuse residences, condominiums, hotels, and custom furnishings with her intricately detailed and layered design aesthetic.
