Founded in 2010 by award-winning designer Róisín Lafferty, Kingston Lafferty Design quickly made its mark as a respected interior architecture and design agency across Ireland and Europe.
KLD think differently about design. Our designs take people on a journey, delivering fun and unexpected experiences. With a holistic approach, we study the way in which people live and work to create tactile and meaningful design; putting human behaviour at the centre of every project.
Through our work we create spaces with feeling, meaning and character. Spaces where beauty can be appreciated but the realities of everyday life are facilitated. We build brands and design graphics to enhance our spaces and further impact the overall experience.
2018 was an incredible year for Kingston Lafferty Design and Róisín Lafferty, the most successful yet. Not only did Róisín win Image Interiors & Living Interior Designer of the year award, but her design for Pot Bellied Pig restaurant won at the Restaurant and Bar Design Awards, while the design for The Vaults Parlour won the Fit Out Award – Retail.
In July 2019 Róisín Lafferty became President of the Institute of Designers in Ireland. Also, in July 2019 Kingston Lafferty Design was longlisted in the Emerging Interior Designer category at the Dezeen Awards 2019.
Our work begins with a thorough understanding of the people we collaborate with. We question, we listen, we observe. Where a space is public, we consider its users: the hypothetical people who make the spaces a reality. Equipped with the consideration of how human life will interact with the space we develop design details that will enhance both the aesthetics and the experience.
We believe great design is in the detail. Each project is a carefully curated space with all things considered, detail by meticulous detail. Design is furthermore a collaboration, from our specialist tradespeople to the clients we work with. Good relationships equal better design. What sets us apart is our desire to create spaces that tell a story. Every project tells a different story, unique to every client.
It is this pursuit of exciting design that has gained KLD prestige and recognition in the world of interiors. Today KLD is an award winning Design House based in Dublin, specialising in Interior Architecture, Interior Design and also providing Graphic Design services. In its ten-year existence KLD has built up an impressive portfolio across both residential and commercial design, and with our ever-growing team of talent, we are only getting started.
Our mission is to create a world where interior design is a valued, respected and pertinent phase of every space and home, through honest, informed designs that deliver truly magical spaces.
