Young Huh Interior Design is a full-service design firm specializing in residential and commercial interiors. A Detroit native, Young attended the Cranbrook School, received a degree in English from Smith College and a law degree from Fordham University. While pursuing further education and an internship in interior design, Young discovered her true calling and founded her eponymous New York City-based design firm in 2007. Resetting the design narrative for each project, YHID’s work is about finding harmony and dynamism through the application of classic and modern design principles. Thoughtful architectural details provide the groundwork for warm and welcoming interiors, each animated by sophisticated surface treatments, a singular play of pattern and color, and a touch of wanderlust. YHID continues to expand beyond its original repertoire to include large commercial and hospitality projects, as well as a growing line of licensed collections. In 2019, Young joined Elle Decor’s prestigious A-List. She was named one of Vogue’s five interior designers on the rise and, in 2011, she won the Connecticut Cottages & Gardens Innovation in Design Award for Interior Design. Her work can be seen in the pages of Architectural Digest, Domino, Elle Decor, House Beautiful, Interior Design, Luxe, The New York Times, Real Simple, The Wall Street Journal, etc. Young actively bolsters the local and global design community, participating in speaking engagements and charitable events including, among others, the Kips Bay Decorator Show House and NKBA Board of Directors.
“Home has never been more important than it has been these days. Its no longer just a place where we shower and change but a place where we shelter from the happenings of the world, work, eat, commune with family and a few friends with an intensity that we have never experienced before. True comfort and living support are needed. People will think twice about purchasing temporary disposable furniture. After months of living in our sofas, beds, and desks, we will evaluate in a much more considered way what true comfort and real functionality mean. Chairs that were once for the occasional work from home day or a Sunday afternoon are being used not just daily, but all day, seven days a week. Our connection and relationship with design has, and will continue to, become more profound and meaningful. This is what I have always loved about interior design – it is the space where human activity and beauty meet.”
