Haute Design in Charleston, South Carolina, has been involved in interior design and project management for over 20 years. Located at 489 King Street in the “SOHO” area of Charleston’s developing upper King Street design district, Haute Design brings together the client’s expectations, European antiques and new design elements to create a timeless, functional living environment.

Haute Design is a full service interior design firm specializing in high-end residential and commercial applications, as well as historic renovations. Our ASID trained professional designers are committed to using the best resources and respected craftsmen to compliment each individual project.

Project highlights for the firm include the renovation of the Peoples Building and the KKBE Synagogue. Haute Design is currently the lead design consultant for Glick/Boehm & Associates Inc. Since the move from Columbia, SC to Charleston in 1999, Haute Design has been selected to participate in the 2001 and 2002 ASID Designer Symphony Showhouse.

The goal of Haute Design is to achieve the client’s vision of the project with an emphasis on function followed by design in an innovative, yet classical style. A fully diversified staff works on all team projects. Professional service is maintained through the emphasis on a commitment to preplanning, working within a budget and management through completion.


Design Philosophy

At Haute Design, we believe in creating classic, timeless environments that not only enhance one’s lifestyle but also increase the value and functionality of the space itself.

As designers who also consider ourselves artists, we draw inspiration from many sources – nature in all of its color and complexity; travel, both regional and abroad – and the personality and spirit of our clients.

The best interior design is not just a reflection of the client’s taste but a blend of form and function, color and texture that is warm, timeless and utterly original.

At Haute Design, we invest time in listening to your vision for your space. We believe conversation is integral to our discovery process. From there, your design team and planning professionals will create a customized plan that is line with your needs, taste, timeline and budget.
