Co-founders & Sisters:


Sisters (in law) Deirdre and Suzanne Carlough begin their story in New York City where the two met in graduate school.  Deirdre and Suzanne instantly became best friends sharing similar values and a passion for art, design, beauty, fashion and travel.  Their adventures led them from New York to London, Paris and Tokyo.  


In 2008, at Deirdre’s wedding, Suzanne met her husband-to-be (Deirdre’s brother in law) and they would eventually become sisters!  Fast forward to 2012 and almost a decade working in the cosmetics and fragrance and jewelry industries, Deirdre and Suzanne both decided to take some time off to raise their families, in New Jersey and Virginia respectively. 


Deirdre and Suzanne’s greatest joy lies within the ‘Company’ they keep – their growing families; They believe one’s home provides the perfect backdrop for life’s most precious moments. 


It was important for both women to design their homes that not only reflected their personal style but could function well with children (and dogs!).  Creating beautiful yet comfortable spaces for the entire family to enjoy inspired them to launch Carlough + Company.


Today, Deirdre and Suzanne work on projects in the New York, New Jersey, Virginia, Washington D.C. and Maryland and beyond.  Drawing on their extensive backgrounds, along with a mutual adoration of prints, textures and color, Deirdre and Suzanne strive to create interiors that reflect the client’s personality and everyday lifestyle.
