Key and Shade partners.jpg

Lindsay Key

Lindsay Key grew up in the West Village and has been living and designing in Brooklyn for the past decade.  After working at Kenneth Brian Walker Interiors, her attraction to the intimacy and scale of residential design led her to start her own firm in 2010.

Since then, Lindsay has looked towards each new project as a unique opportunity to further develop an understanding of how color, light, and texture can make places feel personal.  She believes that no detail is too small

Lindsay received a bachelors degree in Studio Art from Oberlin, and a BFA from the New York School of Interior Design.
