Suzanne Kasler is inspired. As the principal of Atlanta-based Suzanne Kasler Interiors, she often asserts that “a room should be collected, not decorated.” Incorporating the personal collections of her clients with fine art and antiques, contemporary pieces and custom-designed furniture, Suzanne’s meaningful interiors straddle that rare middle ground between sophisticate and ingénue. As a graduate of the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Art, Architecture and Planning, Suzanne brings a comprehensive knowledge of interior architecture and decorative arts to her design work.
Suzanne’s classic interiors have been featured in Architectural Digest, Elle Décor, House Beautiful, House & Garden, Southern Accents, Traditional Homeand Veranda. Her widely published work has won numerous awards, placing Suzanne among the elite of America’s top designers. In the fall of 2009, Rizzoli published Suzanne’s first book, Inspired Interiors, featuring her “deft use of couture-like detailing, a keen sense of sublime color selections, and an aesthetic that seamlessly bridges American and European sensibilities.” In June 2010 and again in June 2012, Suzanne was named to Elle Décor’s “A-List” of top designers in the country, and in January 2012, Suzanne was chosen for Architectural Digest’s New AD100.
In 2008, Suzanne launched a line of furniture for Hickory Chair, along with a collection of lighting for Visual Comfort. Her signature style of casual elegance has since been interpreted into a line of rugs with Safavieh, fine art with Soicher-Marin, accessories with Ballard, and fabrics with Lee Jofa.
Although her brand has expanded exponentially over the last few years, Suzanne remains true to her passion for designing interiors: “Being able to work as a designer is a gift—an amazing opportunity to connect to people and design spaces that inspire them.”
