McAlpine
McAlpine Interiors is the partnership of Bobby McAlpine, Ray Booth and Susan Ferrier. Their interiors firm, in existence since 1997, attracts clients from across the United States with designs for both the public and private sectors including residences, restaurants and a chapel. They maintain offices in Atlanta, Nashville and New York. The driving concept of the firm is to create timeless, emotionally evocative interiors that reflect the vision and needs of their clients. The firm’s founder, Bobby McAlpine, is known for his acclaimed work both in the architectural and interiors field and follows in his work the pursuit to create “the inheritable house.” It is this approach which has led the firm to regional, national and internationally recognized work in publications such as Architectural Digest, Southern Accents, House Beautiful, Veranda, House and Garden, Metropolitan Home, Traditional Home and British House and Garden. Having always produced custom furniture, McAlpine debuted his own furniture line, McAlpine Home, in 2002 with upholstered pieces by Lee Industries in North Carolina and English-made case goods from MacRae in Atlanta. In his best-selling book from Rizzoli International, McAlpine speaks poignantly from his head and heart about everyone’s personal search for home. Armed with the perspective of a southerner and an arsenal of architectural experience, he reveals his thoughts on grace, the human condition, tenderness of place and what we know to be true in our lives, all based on his body of work created over the last three decades.
