David Desmond began his design practice in Los Angeles in 2000. Over the past 22 years, he has designed the interiors of historic
homes, beach houses, city apartments and iconic estates. His projects span the United States, Europe and Asia. David works closely with his clients to
create interiors that are deeply personal and one of a kind.
Raised in Massachusetts, David graduated cum laude from Williams College with a degree in French, and subsequently studied fine arts at the École
Supérieure d’Arts Graphiques Penninghen in Paris. He later moved to Los Angeles, obtained a law degree from UCLA and practiced law. His strong
interest in the decorative arts led him back to UCLA, where he studied interior design before launching his firm. He is a member of the Leaders of Design
Council and the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art.
