Clodagh/Clodagh Design

Since leaving Ireland as a young woman and dropping her last name, Clodagh has established herself as a designer of luxury products and experiential environments. She oversees three distinct companies: Clodagh Signature, her own product design and licensing company; Clodagh Collection, an on-premises showroom highlighting Clodagh-designed products and a curated collection of home furnishings and accessories from all over the world; and Clodagh Design, her architectural and interior design practice which works on both commercial and residential design.

In 2008, Clodagh celebrates her 25th anniversary as a designer in New York. Her work has been recognized with numerous awards including Architectural Digest’s Top 100 Interior Designers, the Interior Design Hall of Fame, and induction into the prestigious Hospitality Design Platinum Circle. An in-demand inspirational speaker, Clodagh just completed her second book, Your Home Your Sanctuary, released by Rizzoli in October. Her first book, Total Design, is now in its third printing. She lives in New York City and is married to international photographer Daniel Aubry.
