Kit Republic is a boutique interior design firm based in New York City. With a focus on commercial and residential projects both large and small, our work has been featured in Architectural Records, Elle Décor Italia, and Elle Decoration Thailand.
For commercial projects, we consult from building concept, branding, and interior design through project realization. We have a special affinity for hospitality and have been involved in creating many well-known restaurants in New York over the past 16 years. In addition to interior design services, our hospitality business often extends to uniform design, environmental design and social media. We recently gave a facelift to a ten-year-old dental clinic, updating it to a more modern classic look without interfering with the operation of their daily their business.
For residential projects we consult in real estate selection, home remodeling, interior design and even custom designing a bookshelf. We work with each client to closely understand their needs and preferences. Our process helps them uncover the style they want to live in. And we work with them to realize that ideal. Each project allows us to create unique spaces that harmonize the architecture with the lifestyle of the owners.
We bring a refined design sensibility to our projects. With our strength in project management and coordination, attention to budget and scheduling considerations, we realize our projects down to the smallest detail.
