Before opening her practice in the spring of 2003, interior designer Eden Wright worked for more than a decade with notable high-end residential interior design firms on both the east and west coasts. She graduated with a BS in Environmental and Interior Design from Syracuse University and lived and studied throughout Italy, while completing an intensive classical design program based in Florence.
Eden moved from New York City to San Francisco in the fall of 1994 and spent six years as an associate and senior designer with Tim Kennedy Design. Tim had previously worked with the legendary Anthony Hail and their combined influence is apparent in Wright's work today. Her father, who was an architect, graphic designer, and Fulbright recipient, also inspired her at an early age with his many creative endeavors as well as introducing her to the work of his Yale professors Phillip Johnson, Joseph Albers and Paul Rand.
Eden's love of clean lines and natural materials, combined with her passion for using color and light, show in her serene yet vibrant projects. Mixing old and new is an integral part of the design process for Eden. "We are all formed by our past and looking toward the future."
EWD is a detail oriented firm known for our warm tailored aesthetic and collaborative approach. "So much of the joy found in my work comes from the collaboration with clients, architects and artisans and the relationships formed from working together."
Current projects include family vacation homes in Hawaii and Deer Valley, Utah, a restaurant in Pacific Heights, a Sonoma weekend retreat, an island cabin in Maine and a historical waterfront estate in the Hamptons.
When Eden is not working, she can most often be found hiking along the coast, at a City Arts & Lecture series or in the kitchen with her chef husband developing hot sauces and trying to acquire some of his mad skills.
