Alison Damonte - Studio

Influenced by nearly everything from the forward-thinking Bauhaus modernists to the limitless unknown of space-age exploration and the mod aesthetic it inspired, we are drawn to the bold, the playful, the innovative. The beautiful tension created by the intersection of discordant colors or geometric forms, that perfect mix of vintage with new, the idea experiment runs through all of our work. Embedded narratives of design provenance—that table found during an art adventure to the far outskirts of Marrakech—contribute to the unique story of each place we craft. A champion of our local creative community, we have collaborated with several artists in a variety of mediums.

Alison Damonte

After graduating from Washington University in St. Louis with a degree in Political Science, Alison moved to San Francisco with no job, no apartment and one Hans Wegner chair she found on the street. With a twinkle in her eye and a tireless Iowa work ethic, she dreamed of becoming an architect. A marketing position at WRNS Studio and classes at UC Berkeley Extension, however, led Alison to realize that her passion for playful patterns, vivid colors and eclectic furniture was probably better suited to interior design than architecture. Honing her skills at Martha Angus and Brayton Hughes Design Studios, Alison struck out on her own in 2012 with her namesake boutique firm.
