New York city

"This is my home. It reflects who I am, what Claudia and I discussed at great length."


"Claudia is trained in architecture so she looks at the whole structure and what it suggests in terms of the division of space and what you can do that’s going to look not forced, but rather, organic."

founder & Principal designer

Passionate about education, Claudia regards herself as a lifelong student, and she also loves to share her knowledge and experience. Claudia currently teaches interior design at her alma mater New York School of Interior Design, New York, NY

In 2012, Claudia was elected the youngest-ever President in the then 65-year history of the International Furnishings and Design Association (IFDA) New York chapter. She served on both IFDA's International Board of Directors (2013 to 2015) and its New York Chapter Board of Directors (2009- to 2015), where she was Vice President of Membership.

Claudia is fluent in English and Spanish.

Claudia is a New York State Certified Interior Designer (CID) and NCIDQ Certified Interior Designer. She received a double bachelor’s degree with honors in Advertising and Communications from Syracuse University, and an Interior Design degree from New York School of Interior Design.

At the beginning of her professional life in 2004, Claudia worked exclusively on hospitality design projects, later expanding to residential work after designing a home in the Island of Mustique, apartments in Manhattan and houses in the Hamptons. Her first opportunity as a lead designer was at CMS Design in 2006 where she worked on Doraku Sushi in Waikiki, Hawaii, for Kevin Aoki, CEO and President of AOKI GROUP and the son of Rocky Aoki, founder of Benihana. At CMS she also worked on restaurants for celebrity chefs such as Charlie Palmer, Gray Kunz, and Ed Brown.

Later Claudia was recruited by an architectural firm, GreenbergFarrow, to formalize their interior design department. In a company of over 350 employees world-wide, Claudia was their ever first interior designer. There she worked on mixed-use developments for some of the nation’s leading real estate developers, retail venues and restaurants. 

During the 2008 recession, Claudia freelanced for a couple of years before starting her own design practice, Claudia Giselle Design (CGD). Throughout its 12 year history, CGD has worked with private homeowners and businesses, as well as partnered with other design and architectural firms.

In 2012 CGD was hired as the Interior Design team for Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas, an 80,000 capacity entertainment venue. Additional work includes a spa on Madison Avenue which has now grown to a multi-million dollar enterprise. Our design helped our client elevate her company into a global luxury brand. We have also worked on private homes in Westchester, Hamptons, Vermont, New Jersey and Long Island, penthouses in Manhattan and much more. 

• In 2014, Claudia was awarded the Tony Torrice Professional Development Grant from the IFDA Educational Foundation.

Claudia's pursuit of wellness in design is more than just a buzzword. It's been a lifelong journey of cultivating health and wellbeing as a response to severe migraines and allergies. As an interior designer, Claudia understands the impact of the interior environment on our health and our quality of life, and this understanding informs her approach to design. Most people spend 87% of their lives indoors. For Claudia, luxurious interior design prioritizes health and wellbeing, for body and mind.
