BILL BROCKSCHMIDT AND COURTNEY COLEMAN bring to their work a focus on traditional detailing, proportion, materials, and craftsmanship in furnishings and architectural elements. Whether designing a stylish library in a Park Avenue duplex or specifying intricate upholstery details for a 17th century wing chair for a Pennsylvania horse farm, the two emphasize appropriateness and clarity in their work, bringing a modern sensibility to historical references. The two formed Brockschmidt & Coleman, LLC, in February of 2001. From their office in the Flatiron District of Manhattan, the firm manages projects in locations in New York and the Northeast and throughout the South, as well as Bermuda, Sicily, and Croatia. In early 2019 they will open their southern studio in the Garden District of New Orleans. Their work has been featured in Elle Decor, House Beautiful, Veranda, Architectural Digest, Traditional Home, The Classicist, and on HGTV. Brockschmidt & Coleman are included in Elle Decor’s A-List as well as House Beautiful’s Next Wave Network.
