Today’s episode of the Chaise Lounge is the last of the season, and it is graced by Chris Roughan. Roughan is principal of Roughan Interiors, a high-end residential and commercial firm with offices in New York City and Greenwich, Connecticut. In today’s conversation with Nick, Roughan talks about how her company is growing more into digital marketing, how a firm can land projects all over the place and the importance of believing in your own capabilities.

When Roughan began her career 23 years ago, she broke into retail design for brands like Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger. Her practice, in its current iteration, was founded in 2009 and has worked on projects in New York and Connecticut but also Telluride in Colorado, California and even a Neapolitan yacht.

All these projects are displayed on Roughan’s website RoughanInteriors.com and even more on Instagram @roughaninteriors. Maybe keep an eye out for potential Instagram campaigns that might be designed to attract Roughan’s first Instagram client.


"I design exclusively for my clients. Their function influences my design. A home is not well designed unless it functions; nothing should be too precious. Get out your wedding china and use it."
