NYC Interior Design: Our Story

Seeing our thoughts and sketches turn into a tangible, physical space is a pretty amazing feeling. It is one of the primary reasons why we began ALine Studio. We’re fervent believers that great design should be easily attainable, not intimidating. We strive to make the whole process enjoyable; our depth of experience, down-to-earth sensibilities, and easy-going personalities make that possible. We also believe in working efficiently to deliver what you want, when you want it.

Over the years, we’ve been lucky enough to see many of our ideas come to life. We have learned a lot about what it takes to make an environment successful for the client and for the people who live in, work in, or otherwise interact with it. We constantly challenge ourselves to think about how we can do things differently—and better. We love what we do and we want you, as our client, to love it too.
