Leah Weinberg is an interior designer from New York with a background in fashion design that influences the stylish yet approachable spaces she creates and curates. There are a few elements she feels are key to creating great design: a compelling story, functionality, and a holistic vision.
A home’s décor should represent the story of the person who inhabits it. Every project begins with learning about the client - their personality, work, hobbies, and tastes – to inspire a unique design that represents them while meeting their functional needs. While beautiful handbags or clothing may look good in a photo or on a model, they may not suit the customer and their lifestyle. Furniture and décor work the same way; everything must make sense for the person living in the home. The holistic vision of the space matters as much as the individual pieces within the space – whether it’s a retail store or one’s home. Great design means that each item is unique unto itself, but also makes sense as part of a whole.Leah is based in Westchester and works across the New York Metropolitan area. Some of her work has been profiled on Apartment Therapy and HGTV.com.
She offers full-service design including renovation, new builds, furnishing, and styling.
A graduate of Cornell University’s Fiber Science and Apparel Design program, Leah has been a staple of the design industry for years. After 12 years as a handbag and accessories designer for brands such as Coach, Tommy Hilfiger, and Kate Spade, she has transitioned her focus to designing residential spaces. She has also completed a Continuing Education Certificate in Interior Design from Parsons, the New School for Design in New York City
