Founder/Chairman, Smith-Firestone Associates (SFA Design)
Sue Firestone has spent the past 35+ years cultivating her personal passion for design operating leading international interior design firm, SFA Design. With a client list that features the world’s premier five and six-star hotels as well as an Alist residential clientele, Sue has become a tastemaker for those seeking the ultimate luxury lifestyle.
In 1996, nearly two decades leading Design 1, Sue turned her focus toward creating a boutique design firm, large enough to execute projects of a grand scale, yet personal enough to provide devoted and intimate attention to each client. The result was SFA Design, a California-based design firm serving clients worldwide, with offices in Los Angeles, New York, and Santa Barbara.
Today, Sue is also a designer for Kravet and A.Rudin, creating 70’s-inspired, bohemian fabrics and natural furniture that embody true Californian style.
She is the recipient of more than two dozen awards, including the prestigious Platinum Circle Award as well as a position on Robb’s Report’s “Top 40 Best Designers in the World.”
