New York-based designer Christopher Burns creates interiors infused with an effortless elegance and introspective beauty. From an ultra modern loft to a classical study, a beachside estate to a repurposed chicken coop, he achieves thoughtful, versatile and harmonious spaces that reflect those who live there.
Each project Christopher Burns Interiors undertakes starts with a simple conversation. Likes? Dislikes? Need-to-haves? Ultimate expectations? An ardent listener, Christopher seeks to understand the lifestyle, needs and aspirations of his clients in order to create interiors that move beyond their expectations. The results invite and embrace.
From art, architecture and music to the psychological influence of color, the craftsmanship of an antique armoire or the intricacy of a handmade French tapestry, Christopher finds inspiration in bold and quiet places, far and near.
At a very young age, Christopher began honing his aesthetic. The son of an antique restoration upholster, he grew up in a world rich in the finest materials and fabrics. He learned the value of time-honored craftsmanship and tailoring. At the age of 18, Christopher moved to NYC to study fashion design at FIT and Parsons School of Design, and at 23, he was design director for a high-end womenswear company.
While fashion helped him develop a keen understanding of color, fabric, proportion and scale, he sought the personal connection garnered from working directly with the customer. The transition into interior design came easily and the collaboration between designer and client was a natural one for him.
In 2003, Christopher opened his boutique firm. Today, Christopher Burns Interiors continues to bring a rotating palette of fresh spaces that fit the modern lifestyle while firmly rooted in timeless, classic design.
