With Laurel & Wolf, anyone can create a gorgeous design that perfectly complements their personality. CEO and Founder Leura Fine founded the company to help make interior design more accessible and affordable to everyone, and she used the Laurel & Wolf site to redecorate her own Los Angeles home in about three months.

How It Works

Laurel & Wolf is an online tool that connects clients to interior designers who fit their style and budget. All you have to do is fill out a brief questionnaire so they can determine your budget, style, decorating needs and taste preferences. You will then be matched with a designer to help guide you through the home design process. This tool is great because it democratizes design — the tool is both accessible and affordable and gives the homeowner complete control over the design process.
