I was so excited to visit the Studio Four showroom on my last trip to NYC. Co-founders  and southern belles Kate Reynolds and Stacy Waggoner have built a design studio and showroom that’s unique in the world of high-end interior design. At their studio near Union Square, you’ll find exclusive collections from young up-and-coming designers: Amber Lewis, Rebecca AtwoodAngie Hranowsky, Caitlin McGauley, Eskayel, Katie Ridder, Tilton Fenwick and more.

Need a fabric in a very specific shade? The Studio Four team will dye it for you. Want a custom-made silk or wool rug in a unique pattern, color or size? Their in-house weaver Soraya Shah will make it for you. You don’t find that level of customization anywhere—but the gals at Studio Four are tapping into this forgotten niche of custom design in a fresh, young and unique way.

These gals were so cool, I just had to have them over on SHB for a Tastemaker Q&A!
