FR Review:
Appropriate scale, harmony of light and crystalline placement are the trademarks of Matthew Smyth. Mixing the historically relevant with modern e´lan, rooms are streamlined with fine antiques and original thought. Recently, art has been playing a larger role in his work, with colors, lighting and even furniture selected to highlight a showstopping piece. Architecturally, his design plans are said to be very clear and helpful, giving the client a visual basis for informed decision making. The firm is small, and clients note that they receive Smyth’s full attention. They also note that his follow-through is a crucial strength, saying “the delivery is as good as the design.”

After studying at FIT and spending five years with noted classicist David Easton, Smyth started his own firm in 1987–he has been developing his own distinctive voice ever since. Most of his work is in Manhattan, although clients can be found worldwide (including Palm Springs, Palm Beach, London, Budapest, and even the occasional exotic commission in Brooklyn). He often decorates second or third residences, and many of his new customers are family referrals. Most work is residential, but he has done a few boutique hotels in recent years. Smyth spends time regularly in Paris (he has an apartment there), adding a Continental inspira- tion to his lines.

Smyth charges a standard design fee and a reasonable markup on product. Living rooms are in the $75,000 range. All bills include the net costs. While he personally tends toward the modern, clients report that he is successful with any style—including highly traditional—or with a dextrous blend. Elle Decor A-List.

Representative Client Comments:
“I just love being with Matthew. He is tons of fun and has a wide range of interests.” “He not only understands peoples’ design interests but also their values.” “He can deal with any circumstance. I had to move in a week, and Matthew made it happen.” “Matthew kept us so calm. I would recommend him to anyone.” “I cannot fully describe his respect and concern for his clients.” “He is involved in everything right down to the last trim selection.” “Matthew understood the house much better than I did and would come out to visit whenever necessary.” “His demeanor and his billing are so straightforward.” “A Francophile, but he loves to mix it up with items for the American Federal period.” “He has multiple homes, but he stayed on top of everything.” “Dealers are always surprised that he speaks of the net price in front of the client.” “His architectural talents are better than any architect I have ever known.” “Refined, not snobbish.” “Likes to work with a certain group of subcontractors.” “He is unique within the industry. He always makes it right.”
