Hudson and Sterling is, first and foremost, focused on people and their experiences of a space. Firm principal Erica Harrison founded Hudson and Sterling. Having worked for over a decade designing concepts for Ralph Lauren, she took her first steps away when she was asked to design a home interior in East Hampton, NY; Hudson and Sterling was born and the firm hasn't looked back since.
We believe that the story of a space is just as important as the design and the objects that go into it – it all plays into the experience. As a firm, we are never focused on a definitive style from any era. We love to strip things down to their essence – the homes heart- and build from there.
We are known for our contradictions and our use of layers and eclecticism. We take a traditional foundation and then rebel against it with lively irreverence. We design unselfconsciously, and our secret is to focus on things we love. We never allow ourselves to be limited by what we did last and search for the neglected and the unused. Our wish is to stimulate our spaces, raise the bar, and to create a conversation in the environment to inspire those who enter it.
At Hudson and Sterling, we are interested in spaces and objects that people can truly use and things that genuinely have a lasting elegance. We are devoted to rebelling against common stereotypes of what it means to be “modern” today and are constantly evolving into making whatever space we take on come to life.
