About Lorraine

Designs of Sophistication, Inc is a NY based business which was started in 1991. As my client base has grown, my business has taken me from coast to coast.

To run a successful Interior design business, it takes more than just your love of design. As an accomplished designer, you need strong listening skills, attention to detail, and a business sense to complete your most successful design. My motto is no job is too small and from that, my referral base grew to a large clientele. I have completely redesigned small private spaces up to larger commercial properties which highlights my passion for structural and architectural design. One of the more successful projects I’ve been involved in was designing the living spaces for the players of the NHL.

As a respected artist, you should always strive to grow outside your comfort level by taking on new and difficult challenges and with the proper knowledge, you can 'break the rules' and succeed.

My designing process includes seeing the customers’ needs and aspirations and combining them with my expertise to result in a finished project that exceeds the customers’ expectations. My business has also taken me to other ventures, such as staging properties and set designs for the entertainment industry. I have also been featured in Designer Showcases.

My goal is to mentor Interior design interns to establish and provide support to forward them in their careers. I have lectured in many schools and shared insights and techniques for designing elegant interiors as well as creating unique exterior landscapes.

One of the most important accomplishments was that I was able to run my successful business while being a mother first. I also believe in giving back. I have a great need to help others that goes beyond my designing. I am involved with many charities such as ‘Families in Need’, ‘Autism’ and ‘Alzheimer’s’ to name a few, where I offer my consultation services and event planning for many of their fundraisers.
