You are unique. You have something to say. We believe design can better the world when it distinctively reflects all that you have to say (or state) and inspires you to be the best version of yourself (your state).

By artistically integrating brand narrative, interior architecture + design, and one-of-a-kind products, State articulates the words of your story into thought-provoking, meaningful environments that shape lifestyles and create conversations.

. Creative direction

. FF&E (furniture, fixture, and equipment) design and specifications
