Jesse Carrier and Mara Miller, the founding principals of Carrier and Company Interiors, are a husband-and-wife interior design duo who create rooms that offer a confident mix of timeless and contemporary design – both familiar and fresh at once. Their guiding philosophy connects client with place in a manner that reflects the distinct and singular nature of both. From bohemian glamour to country charm, from modern luxe to the timeless and ineffable, from the historically informed to the tailored and refined, the Carriers delight in adapting their impassioned sensibility to the unique elements each project presents.
Their latest monograph, Defining Chic: Carrier and Company Interiors (Rizzoli), showcases homes that express their clients’ personalities and dreams, through the practical filters of lifestyle and location while revealing the design principles behind them. The range of projects includes a historic, art-filled New York duplex replete with period vestiges, an updated Mediterranean-style Southern California house with an art deco-era core, to a refreshed Connecticut lakeside retreat with glass expanses designed to capture stunning views. Discrete touches revealed throughout the body of work highlight the overall Carrier effect. This book will appeal to design fans of chic, livable spaces.
The Carriers have been sought out by leading furnishing manufacturers to bring their unique vision of home and interiors to a wider audience. Carrier and Company Collections can be found at: Century Furniture (upholstery and case goods); Visual Comfort (decorative lighting); Lee Jofa, (fabric
and wallpaper); Loloi (area rugs); and Soicher Marin (custom framed art). These partnerships showcase the Carriers’ talent for bucking trends while staying current and combining elegance with livability.
Named to the prestigious Architectural Digest AD100 and Elle Decor A-List, the Carriers have garnered accolades from the world’s most prominent publications, including Architectural Digest, Vogue, Town & Country, Elle Decor, House Beautiful, Veranda, Luxe Interiors + Design, Milieu, and World of Interiors.
Jesse and Mara met at The Fashion Institute of Technology and worked for a number of AD100 interior design firms before establishing Carrier and Company Interiors in 2005. They live in New York City and the Hudson Valley with their two children.
