About Casa Santi and the Santified Team!
Welcome to Casa Santi Interior Design, LLC, a virtual look at my philosophy and the way I, David Santiago, define style. With over 20 years of experience in the design trade, combined with a sophisticated classical background, I am eager to share with you the possibilities you can achieve within your residential or commercial space. I have a practical and common sense approach to how I work. First, I assess the project, your needs, style, function of the tasks at hand with the proposed budget. Then, I apply my traditional, unexpected, curation with my design expertise to achieve a cohesive successful concept, ultimately defining my client...YOU!
For me, design and decorating should be fun and a celebration of one's taste, not some strange concept or radical idea that gets lost in translation. It's about telling your story through visually appealing design and decor with a beautifully curated space.
As an advocate of the trade community, I am currently:
Co-President, International Furniture & Design Association, NY Chapter (IFDA)
Former President of Interior Design Society, NY Chapter
Member of the American Society of Furniture Design (ASFD)
Member of Accessories Resource Team (ART)
My experience has also inspired me to introduce my trademarked Strictly Santi Brand.
The StrictlySanti Brand is known for a clear, distinct vision that transcends into the world of set design, hospitality, commercial and residential design. My SANTIFIED touch is known for its traditional, unexpected and curated signature.
Let's meet, get to know each other, explore ideas and have a discussion about Interior design.
Embrace a new change in your residential or commercial space and become Santified!
