Founder and Principal Designer, Lifestyle Curator
Born in Iran, Sogol Afsharjavan got hooked on design and aesthetics at an early age, watching her grandfather’s work as a design-build architect for projects ranging from family homes to the Grand Palace in Tehran. During that time she developed a passion for image, textures, color and mixing media. In 1979, Sogol moved to Koblenz, Germany, where 11 years of exposure to European art, designs and trends enhanced her interest in interior design and helped shape her individual eye for style.
With Sogol Décor she combines all her lifelong loves into one. Drawing from her multicultural background and a degree in German and French Literature from the University of Maryland, Sogol applies an artful, holistic approach to her work. Her timeless eclecticism and know-how are perfect for steering clients into beautiful, thoughtfully-designed personal creations.
Sogol has established a reputation for infusing every project with unique aesthetics while designing seamless, practical solutions. To ensure the optimal utilization of interiors she engages in the careful planning of all stages: design, budgeting, planning, fabric selection, furniture design and installation. Her vast array of experience reflects into interiors that are accessible and well-defined, with a unique worldly appeal. Clients are motivated to live better, richer lives full of daily inspiration.
"I am proud to be able to pick the best elements of each culture I have experienced to curate a unique taste and style in lifestyle and design."
