Ariel Okin is the founder of her eponymous firm, Ariel Okin Interiors, a New York based, full service interior design firm specializing in luxury residential, commercial, and hospitality projects across the country.
Ariel’s signature style can be interpreted as “traditional with a twist” – warm, livable and elegant spaces, with an edited, contemporary and practical approach. A deft use of color, emphasis on clean lines, and mix of bespoke and antique items are hallmarks of her aesthetic, yet no two projects are alike; Ariel believes every home should reflect its owner.
Ariel established her firm in 2016, and has since been featured and profiled in Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, House Beautiful, Domino, Vogue, The Wall Street Journal, and New York Magazine, among others. In 2021, she was named a House & Garden Gold List Designer. Ariel is also a contributing writer to Vogue.com, Architectural Digest and Domino.
In 2020, Ariel launched a furniture collection with Society Social, which went on to be the brand’s best selling collection to date, as well as a wallpaper collection with Chasing Paper, now heading into its second iteration in 2021. Ariel also launched her editorial and e-commerce site, Fenimore Lane, in August 2020.
Current projects include a full floor gut renovation on the Upper West Side, an Upper East Side pied-a-terre, a hospitality project in Palm Beach, a partial renovation in Greenwich, CT, a re-design of a classic colonial in Kenilworth, IL, and multiple homes in the tri-state area. Ariel lives in Westchester with her husband, daughter and dog, Charlie.
