Episode 8: Laurence Carr, Laurence Carr Inc.
In this episode of the ICFF Podcast, we catch up with Laurence Carr, founder of boutique design firm Laurence Carr Inc. Born in France and educated at Paris Universite VIII and Parsons The New School in NYC, Laurence’s global influence comes from her time living in Europe, Australia, and Asia before moving to the U.S. and founding her eponymous design firm in NYC.
Her style combines essentialist luxury, contemporary aesthetics, ancient and wellbeing practices, and biophilia. This unique combination has been shaped by her love of Western European art, her experiences in dance since the age of 5, and influences from global cultures from where she has lived, combined with a modern aesthetic and a deep respect for nature. She calls it “Eclecticism in the 21st century.”
Laurence is an expert in circular design and is an advocate for advancing sustainable and healthy materials in the built environment through her show Chez Laurence on EarthxTV and her close involvement with the Sustainable Furnishings Council.
