Natasha Baradaran is the founder and creative visionary behind Natasha Baradaran Interior Design.
Inspired by her multicultural background, her work fuses European design traditions, Middle Eastern arts, and the laid-back luxury of Southern California living. Born in Los Angeles, Natasha received her Bachelors of Arts degree from USC, her Master of Arts degree from Columbia University, and attended UCLA's School of Interior Design. Natasha started her career at the renowned firm Wilson and Associates, where as a senior designer she designed numerous high-end hospitality projects around the world, including luxury hotels, five-star restaurants, spas and corporate offices.
In 2000, she founded Natasha Baradaran Interior Design. Baradaran has received industry accolades, including the 2012 “Star on the Rise” award from West Hollywood’s Pacific Design Center, and in 2013 was included in The Hollywood Reporter's list of the "25 Most Influential Interior Designers in Hollywood." Baradaran’s work has been featured in publications including: Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, W Magazine, Town & Country, among others.
In 2014, Baradaran ventured into product design, with her namesake furniture collection. Inspired by a lifelong passion for jewelry making, Baradaran created multi-faceted forms which complement her brand’s vision for artistic, stylish and integrally made designs. Baradaran's second collection, CURVA, was released in 2016, as a tribute to Italian mid-century design. Baradaran sited the Italian phrase "Dolce Far Niente"—the sheer indulgence of enjoying the moment, as one of the sources of inspiration for CURVA.
In 2018, Baradaran released the third chapter in her product design narrative, entitled ANDRO—androgynous design in a contemporary luxury vernacular. With ANDRO, Baradaran set to breakdown traditional gender roles placed on materiality and form.
As a designer free of creative limitations, Baradaran has grown into a full service design firm providing interior design, interior architecture, furniture, and textile design for high-end residential and commercial environments. Her studio is located in the heart of the La Cienega Design Quarter.
In 2020, Baradaran’s debuts her first capsule textile collection. A covetable line that unravels traditional gender norms and begs to be appointed. Baradaran, the ever evolving creative spirit, mines her hobbies for inspiration. “Flamenco dancing is a secret passion of mine,” she says, “In my classes, dancers wear these tremendously powerful, flowing lace skirts—the performance is equal parts sensuality and power, and I see this collection as an extension of that."
Baradaran resides in Beverly Hills with her husband, a real estate attorney, and two daughters. They continue to maintain a summer home in Italy, where she enjoys traveling with her family as well as visiting her favorite antique stores.
