Founded in 2006 by Kenyan Lewis, By Kenyan Design Studio is a full-service, New York-based design firm specializing in prop and antique sourcing, interior design build-outs, and creative direction.
By Kenyan has outfitted New York restaurants such as Lovely Day on the Lower East Side and De Santos in the West Village. We have a wide variety of experience in sourcing and designing products, storefronts, and interiors for both large and small businesses. Notable ones include Bushmills, Gap, Earnest Sewn, and Ralph Lauren.
We approach each job with over fifteen years of design and building experience, and have gained a reputation in the industry for our emphasis on old-world design and craftsmanship. By incorporating traditional building hallmarks with contemporary techniques, we can help you transform any space into something unique and inspired. We pride ourselves on our intimate, hands-on design approach, in which we oversee every aspect of the process from initial conception to completion.
To us, some of the most important work is in the details—the variations in color of an aged wood beam; the pattern of corrosion in an old doorknob; the way a particular surface feels to the touch. Each By Kenyan project is approached with an eye for the ways in which innovation and tradition can be simultaneously applied in design. We believe that the spaces we inhabit can ultimately allow us to see life in new and unexpected ways.
