David Phoenix is an award-winning designer known for his elegant style and luxurious, comfortable interiors.
The client-driven firm has delivered personal, sophisticated, and thoughtful homes to celebrities, royalty, and financiers for nearly three decades. David takes an immersive approach to each project, often joining from the earliest architectural consultations to the final art acquisitions. A lifelong student of the decorative arts, David’s work reflects his love of history combined with a modern sensibility.
“I’m filled with gratitude every day that I do what I love—create warm, inviting, stylish and comfortable houses for my clients to enjoy with family and friends.”
David seamlessly mixes antique and contemporary styles, resulting in layered, distinguished interiors that, although rooted in classic design, subscribe to his mantra: A room should never feel predictable. Artisanal, handmade, and custom work, such as architectural detailing and furniture design, features prominently in a David Phoenix project. “Even in the most traditional house, there is no formula. How does the light hit? Where is the view? Are there pets and children?” David deftly creates environments that reflect the lifestyles of his clients and maximizes the potential of a property. “Design is about beautiful things, but more importantly, how to put it all together.”
The firm’s current projects span from Montecito to Montana to Palm Beach and range from ground-up construction to turnkey decoration. David is hands-on with every project, closely collaborating with architects and builders and working side-by-side with his expert, professional staff to ensure a quality, personalized, luxury experience.
David is newly based in Palm Beach, FL, after years in California, where he was named by the Hollywood Reporter as one of the top 25 interior designers in Los Angeles. His work is consistently recognized in various publications, including multiple covers of Architectural Digest and stories in Traditional Home, Veranda, LUXE, and more. He has participated in the world-class Kips Bay Decorator Show House in both New York and Palm Beach, which benefits the extraordinary Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club. David brings his unique vision of livable luxury to a growing stable of product collaborations, including textiles with Kravet, furniture with Hickory Chair, and art with Soicher Marin.
