About House & Garden's 100 Leading Interior Designers

At House & Garden, we pride ourselves on the wide-ranging styles of houses that grace the pages of the magazine every month. The same can be said about this meticulously compiled directory of those we consider to be the best interior designers in the country.

Revised and updated every three years, it’s not simply a hand-picked bunch of designers we know personally, or might like to use to decorate our own homes – though they are included as well. Rather, through extensive research and debate, we have cast our net wide to produce a list of 100 designers who probably have 100 different approaches. Each caters for different looks and types of interior, from the ultra-sleek and high-tech Knightsbridge penthouse to the pretty country cottage that is the perfect embodiment of a seemingly ‘undecorated’ look, and everything in between. Some designers require you to spend a fortune; others may even save you money.

As part of our research, we’ve consulted influential experts in the interior-design industry – be they rug designers or bathroom specialists – to find out whom they rate for talent and professionalism, and we’ve included some of their comments. What each of these designers has in common – with their vastly varied approaches and sizes of team – is that they all do their job with integrity, dedication and flair.
