Crown Design

Crown Design focuses on commercial interior design in the hospitality industry and has had an active hand in many projects over the years, from individual finish selection on a variety of projects to full scale renovations and new construction. We are able to provide a wide range of services beginning with the research and conceptual design, coordination with the architect, space planning, and selection of materials and finishes to the design implementation including purchasing, documentation, installation, and overall project coordination. We believe in creating stimulating and functional spaces with a flow throughout that provides both a seamless and cohesive design, while working within the requirements of the hotel or restaurant and/or keeping with our client’s vision. This can be translated into residential design as well, which is another area in which Crown Design can be of assistance. Having worked on custom log homes, pool houses, and homes in the past, we are excited about any new opportunities to create a beautiful environment for our clients to cultivate their lives in. Whether it’s a hotel, restaurant, office space, or your home, we take a comprehensive and holistic approach to each design opportunity, applying our passion and creativity to give you a one of a kind, inspiring, and functional space.
