About our Company

Founded in 2013, Scheer & Co collaborates with clients on creating timeless, elevated interiors rooted in history with a contemporary twist — and a little (or big!) dose of drama.

We are a company built on a passion with deep respect for our craft and decades of training. From development to documentation, custom fabrications, and beyond, Scheer & Co. is known for its turnkey design services with a client-driven approach and an emphasis on personalization and collaboration.

Every person has a story, an origin, a history that shapes them personally and defines who they are. We work to gain a deep understanding of our clients’ needs and personal styles and weave those stories into our work, referencing historic moments, while embracing the future.

We believe the wow of transformation in any space includes not only the finished look, but the journey of discovery that results in something beyond our clients' wildest imaginations.

Setting the firm apart from the rest, we aim to find the perfect balance between rigorous systems and flexible/one-of-a-kind offerings and communication -- no project is the same and our team ensures that every client has a highly engaged liaison with a robust skillset while also understanding that creativity isn't linear, construction can be messy and the process should be honest and enjoyable even during challenging times.
