OWNER, LEAD DESIGNER
After a decade of diverse experiences in the design world, Laura launched Lorla Studio to provide clients with holistic design solutions, blending her background in the social sciences with her expertise in the built environment. She leads her team to approach each design challenge from both a humanistic and analytical angle; a combination of user needs, client collaboration, research, observation and a consideration of historical precedents.
Laura holds degrees from some of the premier schools in the country, with an MS in Interior Design from Pratt Institute, and a BA in Sociology from the University of Richmond. She specialized in hospitality projects while working at top New York design firms, JFD Studio and Gensler.
We have a responsibility to actively participate in the changes we want to see in the world. Our top priorities include protecting children from gun violence, providing all people with quality health care and information, and working to end mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the United States. We support Sandy Hook Promise, Planned Parenthood and the Equal Justice Initiative. When you work with Lorla Studio you’re helping support these essential organizations. Thank you!
We are passionate about understanding our clients and their needs. We want to know what drives you, what you value and how you live. This approach enables us to develop spaces that embrace the specific challenges of each project, and are an honest reflection of our clients.
The spaces that we create are a collection of ideas and complementary skill sets. We love working side by side with brands, homeowners, artists and craftsmen to create spaces that embody the idea that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Collaboration and collection are key concepts behind every space we design.
Every space that we design is uniquely tailored to the specifications of your project, resulting in a distinct and one-of-a-kind experience. We approach each project with fresh eyes, an open mind, and thrilled about the possibilities.
