Innovative, Timeless and Sustainable Interiors
We help you understand your interior design goals from the outset by studying your tastes, preferences and lifestyle to understand your desires.
Each of us at Sesshu Design Associates, Ltd is passionate about bringing beauty into the world by creating a sense of place through quiet, elegant details. Dedicated to crafting spaces that are unique to each client, we blend modern, vintage and antique furniture with refined and unusual color palettes, thus providing fresh, imaginative designs that are truly timeless.
Inspired by the natural beauty of each site, we actively seek ways to protect our environment by incorporating sustainable and green interior design into our projects.
Crafting a good green home is about using skill and creativity to create places that nurture, respect and celebrate people and the planet. A ski lodge can be as green as a townhouse, but they will each convey that greenness in distinct ways. We believe that green interior design should be good interior design.
Building an environmentally friendly house can be an exciting and gratifying experience that provides an opportunity to create a home that is respectful of the land and community. If being environmentally responsible is important to you, we can help you meet those goals through our green interior design process.
It is essential to put together a good building team that is excited about green design and will work together to assure that energy efficiency, smart resource use, and safe, renewable building materials will be incorporated into the entire design process, not addressed as an afterthought at the end.
The final result will be a beautiful home that sits thoughtfully on the land, welcoming and inspiring you every time you step inside.

Making a Difference
We believe an important part of a successful life is giving something back in gratitude for that which we have been given. Therefore, a portion of our profits are donated to the following organizations:
Habitat for Humanity – Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses with the help of the homeowner (partner) families. Habitat houses are sold to partner families at no profit, financed with affordable loans. The homeowners’ monthly mortgage payments are used to build still more Habitat houses.
Stardust Building Supply – a non-profit company that provides deconstruction services and sells any usable materials and fixtures at a great price, keeping them out of landfills and providing an inexpensive option for homeowners in need.
The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to finding a cure for spinal cord injuries. I support their work in the hope that a cure will be found for my brother, who was paralyzed in a car accident ten years ago, and the many others like him. They also provide resources and work to improve the quality of life for those living with spinal cord injuries.
