Founded by award-winning designer Sophie Harrison in 1992, Amathea has served as one of the most respected luxury interior design services in the world.
Sophie took her skills and passion for working with colors, fabrics and designs and started Amathea.
Years of contact and association as a fashion executive with a number of the most celebrated names in the fashion industry has led Sophie to develop a refined taste. Her Parisian “flair” mixed with her 25 years in NYC and world travels enable her eclectic esthetic creates a unique living experience for those who want more than just a house.
After graduating from New York University’s Stern School of Business in 1985, Sophie decided to stay in New York and join the family business. She spearheaded the launch of its “Miss Maud” line into the US and then assumed the position of Marketing and Merchandising Director of Maud Frizon Americas, where she oversaw the entire wholesale and retail operations. At that time operations included press relations and runway projects.
She was born and raised in Paris as the daughter of the world-renowned fashion designer and entrepreneur Maud Frizon, and she has now incorporated her education, exposure, and upbringing to make a name for herself as one of New York City's finest luxury interior designers.
