- Ashe Leandro is a New York Design firm creating spaces that somehow simultaneously feel tailored and relaxed. These interior designers focus on working with the client to add meaningful pieces rather than curating rooms just for beauty.

3. Commune focuses more on corporate spaces, but they also do residential spaces focused around creating meaningful connections. The firm works with creative clients and collaborates with them to create a merging of ideas and values.

5. Alessandra Branca was born in Rome but raised in Chicago. You see this reflected in her contemporary but classically inspired spaces. She has a love for European art and antique furnishings mixed with bold, modern patterns and colors. Much of her inspiration comes form travels and vintage finds.
