Ridder started her firm in 1995 after working in the decorating departments of House & Garden and House Beautiful magazines. Known for bringing her editor's eye and curiosity for unusual elements to the interiors she creates, Katie deftly combines comfort, practicality and sophisticated color as well as a mindfulness of architectural surroundings. Katie's work has been featured in many magazines, including Elle Decor, Town and Country and New York. Her beautiful book "Rooms" was recently published by Vendome Press.

Katie Ridder's rugs were created as part of Studio Four NYC’s Designer Rug Collection where four designers were invited to create a collection of 2 rug designs, each in 3 colorways.
