After a successful formative career in Louisville, Kentucky, native Kentuckian Todd Klein moved to New York to work with Albert Hadley of the venerable American design firm Parish-Hadley. In 2000, Parish-Hadley closed its doors and Mr. Hadley encouraged Klein to open his own design firm. Seventeen years later, the business continues to grow serving clients around the world.
Todd strives to help his clients realize their decorating dreams by first determining what is appropriate for their homes and then making it work for their lifestyles. Color, proportion, scale and comfort are the important principles Todd feels are necessary to create successful interiors. His work utilizes sumptuous fabrics and unique color combinations always emphasizing comfort and practical luxury as a desired result. His philosophy is simply stated, “Design takes on an almost spiritual dimension when you create a pleasing space to share with friends or relax alone.” Todd credits Mother Nature and design giants Albert Hadley, Nancy Lancaster, David Hicks, and Billy Baldwin as his greatest mentors.
Klein’s projects include the interior architecture and design of a new home in Greenwich, Winfield House, the U.S. Ambassador to the Court of St. James’s in London, a ranch house in Jackson Hole, a farmhouse on Martha’s Vineyard, a horse farm and several other projects in Kentucky, a villa on St. Barth’s, a Soho loft in Manhattan, a house in Bakers Bay, Bahamas, a new Hinckley yacht and various other exciting residential projects.
