LEFT BANK DESIGN is in the business of shaping built environments and offers services which include interior design, project management and sourcing.

Courtenay O’Sullivan, principal, works internationally from a base in New York City. She is, first and foremost, a problem solver. Fluent in the languages of architect, contractor and busy client, Left Bank Design can unravel the mystery of how to approach a design job or renovation and manage as many steps of the process as needed.

In design, Courtenay brings an irreverent approach to her work which is sophisticated and chic without taking itself too seriously. Originally founded in Paris, the firm’s aesthetic is strongly shaped by a decade spent in Europe and likes to incorporate storied pieces sourced abroad. Left Bank Design’s philosophy is to create intimate, personal spaces that reflect the varied facets of their owners’ lives. It is as important that these spaces be as livable as they are aesthetic and Left Bank Design excels at spaces that flow effortlessly.

As project manager, Courtenay is practical and meticulous. She puts equal emphasis on details and on schedule. As well as in making the process a pleasure.
