At McGrath II we believe the home you live in has the power to shape the life you lead. Good design is about more than the arrangement of beautiful objects. It's about creating spaces with deeply personal meaning. At our core, we are storytellers, building a narrative that begins the minute you walk in the door and ends with a profound connection to the place you call home.
"Textiles bring life and energy to a room. We work hand in hand with our clients to find the colors and patterns that speak to them."
Guided by years of experience in residential design, Suzanne and Lauren established their firm in 2010 in New York City. With backgrounds in decorative arts, Lauren studied art history at Bowdoin College while Suzanne studied interior design and decorative art history at Parsons The New School for Design, working together seemed an inevitability. They began taking on projects combining years of experience as well as their mutual trust of one another’s taste. Eight years later, Suzanne and Lauren are still hands on during every step of the design process with each partner bringing their unique perspective to every decision. Their first book, Good Bones, Great Pieces, was published in 2012.
McGrath II’s work has appeared in Architectural Digest, The New York Times, House Beautiful, Traditional Home, Domino, Lonny, and Better Homes & Gardens.
