Left Bank Designs is a full-service design firm, which means: we meet with the client, listen to their needs and wants for their space/home, come up with different options to meet those requirements. Once choices are made, we coordinate with the contractor and/or others to create the space desired. Pricing is transparent, orders are placed, and the process begins. As a full-service design firm, we work with you, the architect, the engineer, the contractor, the artisans, whom ever it takes to meet your vision, and we work with budgets. The final project will be what you imagined.
Our principal designer, Elana Martin, has more than 23 years experience designing comfortable surroundings our of clients’ unique spaces. Her vision and craft reach across residential, commercial and hospitality projects, where she extends her professional, detailed touch to meet a range of styles and budgets.
