In a unique
Emerson Bailey is a design and antiques studio in pursuit of the extraordinary.
We are uniquely qualified to help clients discover the rare, and oftentimes inaccessible, world of antiques through our partnership with leading Swedish antiques dealer D. Larsson.
At Emerson Bailey, we believe in the discovery of objects that tell a story, combining remarkable finds with unexpected curation. We want our clients to feel that they have discovered something extraordinary–whether it is an object that is a hundred or hundreds of years old or a surprising design for an interior.
We make the hard-to-find easy, constantly on the hunt for the best of the best, objects and design approaches that excite. Our deep roots and relationships in both Scandinavian and European markets grant us access to those objects, and we are global in our perspectives, and inclusive in our view of contemporary. At the same time, design plays as critical a role in our process as any star antique, and it is in that curation that we create projects and spaces that take the ordinary to the exceptional.
FOUNDER & PRINCIPAL
The daughter of an architect who was also an avid collector—and the company’s namesake, Harold Emerson Bailey—by an early age Susan was surrounded by the rare. Starting from childhood, Susan traveled extensively to expand her global viewpoint, looking at each destination as a unique discovery she brought back to hone her design perspective.
Studying design at university, Susan embraced interior design as the marriage of those special finds she constantly sourced and the emotionally resonant environments that housed them. In 1994 Susan launched her design firm, Bailey Interiors, which in 2016 evolved into the full-service Emerson Bailey of today.
