Lorna Gross Interior Design

Lorna Gross, ASID, NCIDQ, MBA

Lorna Gross Interior Design is a global, full-service design firm with residential specialties in new construction, renovations and furniture planning. The company’s commercial work includes restaurants, executive suites and branded businesses.

President Lorna Gross believes great design is highly individualized and unique, yet also comfortable and livable. A dedicated client advocate, she has a talent for unearthing statement pieces that capture the essence of a homeowner’s personality. “I love the challenge of sourcing rare and unique items that give a space individuality,” she reflects.

Having grown up in Louisiana and New York, Gross is as comfortable at a formal bone-china dinner as she is at a raucous crawfish boil or crab feast. Her father was a contractor and her mother a teacher and seamstress who emphasized hard work and education. Gross infuses a lifetime of world travel and dynamic influences—from sugarcane fields to corporate America—into her design work as well as into her firm’s values and business practices.

The designer holds a bachelor’s degree and MBA from University of Maryland’s Smith School and a B.A. in interior design from Marymount University. She is a board member of the International Women’s Forum and the Design Trust. Among many awards, Gross is a recipient of ASID’s prestigious Designer of Distinction Award.
