Ariella Duker is a former fashion stylist and Sotheby’s -trained art historian turned- interior designer. Her art history background has etched a deep respect for classic design principles like balance and symmetry — and she believes that referencing pieces from the past helps maintain an element of timelessness even when designing modern spaces. Fluent in both classic and contemporary, high culture and pop culture, vintage and modern — her signature style often balances elements of multiple such influences seamlessly and tastefully. Leveraging her distinct experience, education, industry connections, and personal style, she brings to others her passion and skill for creating interiors that bridge the past to the present, are undeniably stylish, infinitely warm, and most importantly full of life. She has received an IFDA Rising Star award, was recognized as a New York Cottages & Gardens Rising Star, and has been featured on Luxe Magazine’s Gold List. Her work has been published in House Beautiful, Luxe, Traditional Home, and NY Cottages & Gardens among others.
“I am no fortune teller, but as a result of the pandemic, home has taken on new meaning for everyone. With new rituals and lifestyle changes, we are undeniably seeing investments being made in all aspects of home improvement. As designers we are being tasked with finding creative, stylish, and functional ways to delineate spaces so that working AND working out from home do not infringe upon every personal living space. Let’s just say carving out space for a Peloton bike will continue to be a challenge on our design ride ahead.”
The Verellen Lou Stool is a design chameleon! It could move about a house and feel and function equally well in a refined living room or a youthful playspace. Great as an extra seat or an ottoman too - it holds a lot of design weight!
