Can you tell us how gamble + design was conceived?
After a decade of working in a range of design firms in San Francisco, my partner (Murray Agnew) and I decided to open our own firm. We both have degrees in design, mine in Interior Architecture and his is Lighting Design.
gamble + design is a design firm founded with a goal of providing inspiring solutions for interior spaces. We work with the fundamentals of scale, light, texture, and color to come up with schemes that are timeless and respond to our client’s needs as well as the architecture. We focus our attention to distinct details inspired by the character of a space and it’s surroundings. With a passion for the process of distilling a client’s vision into rooms that are a direct reflection of their tastes and lifestyles, the resulting spaces are not only beautiful to look at, but wonderful to live in.
