Kate Curran founded her Interior Design firm based in the Hamptons, New York in 1995. Skillfully performing home planning from concept to completion, Curran has been commissioned on projects ranging from livable Manhattan interiors and renovated lofts to rustic Hamptons barns and beach houses. Each is an exercise in modern living, personalized to reflect and accommodate the clients she values. Kate is known for her ability to read and respond to her discerning clientele, enabling her to custom design each home so that it is suited to their specific needs. Her designs have a spare sensibility and a continental flair as she combines Mid-Century Modern furniture with cutting edge upholstery and Modern art. She loves nature and incorporates elements of the environment into her designs like wood, stone, metal, an earthy palette and natural fabrics. It is her belief that a well designed home has a timeless quality.

Even in her youth, she was a modernist and would marvel at the unique architecture of the Richard Meier and Charles Gwathmey houses decorating the landscapes of Sagaponack and Amagansett. Kate studied drawing and sculpture at The Art Students League, painting at the Victor D’Amico Institute of Art, worked as a sculptor’s assistant at The Cathedral of St. John the Divine and then went on to study Interior Design. After completing her studies she worked with an Architectural firm in the Hamptons and an Interior Design Firm in South Florida. Her career took and interesting turn when she had the opportunity to work for Lisa de Kooning, daughter of the famed Abstract Expressionist Willem de Kooning. During that time she traveled the world meeting with artists, galleries and museums. Her rich background in Art has fueled her passion for Interior Design, Architecture and Modern Art.
