Madeline Stuart is a leading member of the Los Angeles design community whose wide-ranging clientele comes from the entertainment industry and the world of business and finance. Equally at ease designing a 1920's Hollywood hacienda, a Fifth Avenue Manhattan apartment or a Rocky Mountain retreat, Stuart stresses, above all else, the fundamental marriage of integrity and beauty. Her projects reflect a collaborative relationship between architecture and furniture, function and form, client and designer.
A significant portion of the firm’s work focuses on architectural restoration and remodeling. Having established a reputation for meticulous attention to the myriad details of interior and exterior architecture, Ms. Stuart's firm has been responsible for reversing years of neglect and damage to properties originally built by such well-regarded architects as Sylvanus Marston, Paul Williams and Gerald Colcord.
Over the past 15 years, the work of Madeline Stuart & Associates has been featured in numerous publications, including Architectural Digest, Elle Décor, House & Garden, House Beautiful, Town & Country and Veranda. In 2011 the firm was distinguished by its inclusion on the AD100--Architectural Digest's prestigious list of the top 100 design & architecture firms. In 2010, the inaugural debut of Elle Décor's A-List featured Madeline as one of the leading 25 designers in the country. In 2006 she was awarded the Star of Design by the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles.
Ms. Stuart lives in the Hollywood Hills with her husband, writer Steve Oney and Beatrice, a professional Jack Russell terrier.
In 1998 Madeline Stuart introduced a line of furniture and lighting based on the custom pieces she’d designed for her private clients. The Collection features lighting, upholstery and casegoods that infuse classical forms with a modern sensibility. Each item is made to order in Los Angeles by a talented team of artisans who employ the traditions of bespoke furniture. The Madeline Stuart Collection has grown to over seventy pieces, each representing the timeless, understated elegance that forms the foundation of Ms. Stuart’s design philosophy.
My firm is predicated on the notion of timeless design– be it modernist or traditional in inspiration. Our work rarely reflects the latest trend. Rather, we choose a more thoughtful and deliberate approach to designing environments for both residential and commercial interiors. With respect to architecture and site, we seek to create an atmosphere that exudes comfort, harmony and a lack of pretense.
Our process is a collaborative one, and we look to our clients not only to accompany us but to guide us toward our intended goal—a setting that reflects the values, sensibilities, lifestyle and intelligence of the people who inhabit it.
