Before launching Radel Home in September 2014, designers and owners Amy Seminski and Katie Radford started collecting vintage pieces from their travels and refurbishing them with unique fabrics. As lovers of mid-century modern furniture, Amy and Katie also designed beautiful, yet functional, furniture pieces of their own for their Manhattan apartments and Amy’s interior design clients. Now as part of the Radel Home collection available to you, these pieces include stools, chairs, storage ottomans and also one of a kind vintage pieces. All of the bespoke designs are made in the local New York City area, allowing Amy and Katie to be an integral part of the fabrication process. This distinguished modern furniture line is streamlined and sleek; perfect for any size home.
Specializing in high-end residential interiors, Amy Seminski established her New York based interior design firm, Amy Seminski Interior Design, in 2002 with the simple philosophy that sophisticated style must reflect the lifestyle and individuality of each client. Her comprehensive designs ensure that all aspects of the interior are taken into consideration, including custom furniture pieces and window treatments as well as the client’s existing artwork and antiques. She is most noted for her contemporary take on traditional styles, incorporating clean lines, refined colors and subtle textures to create a distinguished look.
A graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology, Amy began her career in fashion and later worked with James D’Auria Associates Architects in New York prior to creating her own firm. This unique background combines her gifted eye for color and inherent sense for space planning. Attesting to her versatility, her projects have ranged from New York City townhouses to Hampton’s retreats, along with high-end retail stores and modern loft apartments. Amy forms long term relationships with her clients and has designed multiple residences for families who have come to trust her creativity and integrity.
Katie was born and raised in Sydney, Australia. She was educated in London at the Inchbald School of Design and has her degrees in Display & Exhibit Design and Fabric Styling from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. Katie gained her professional expertise while working at international fashion houses including Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent, and at distinguished publications such as W and Elle Magazines. Katie brings her experience, both professional and personal, to every piece of furniture she designs. In fact, she conceived the idea of the line’s storage ottomans to help to reduce clutter while maximizing the beauty of her family’s living space in her own home.
Katie also worked at Amy Seminski Interior Design for two years where Amy and Katie discovered that their skills and dedication to fashion and interior design complemented each other. As a result, the two decided to take their love and passion for their work and soon joined forces to launch Radel Home.
