August Black launched in 2008 as the only interior design firm that caters exclusively to men. Met with great acclaim, August Black has helped men up and down the island of Manhattan at such addresses as 20 Pine, The District and the new HUYS building. After helping hundreds of Wall Streeters, Hedge Fund guys, musicians, athletes and the occasional lawyer make their house a home, women and couples began to knock on the door.
Due to the growing demand for our services on high-end residential projects, August Black proudly launched August Black HOME. We then set our sights on the new kids on the block, literally. We launched August Black BABY to accommodate busy parents and growing families, by creating custom, one of a kind baby rooms. Following the successful completion of numerous hotel, office and restaurant projects, August Black COMMERCIAL AND HOSPITALITY has now entered the mix. From bachelors and babies to cocktails and conference rooms, we’re happy to say…we’ve come full circle.
After 5 very successful years in business, August Black faced the problem that every company dreams of; the need for a partner to keep up with the growing clientele. Enter Charli Hantman.
Charli joined the August Black Team in 2013 as a full Partner, bringing tons of experience to the table in both residential and commercial interior design. Taylor and Charli are thrilled to embark on this new venture together, better servicing Manhattan and the surrounding areas. August Black provides full-service interior design and project management services for residential, commercial, hospitality, restaurant and lounge projects.
