Mom-Daughter Team Designs Cross Country
The mother-daughter design team of Susan Knight and Alexandra Knight may call San Francisco Bay home, but that doesn't keep them from creating great designs all across the U.S.
Like mother, like daughter. The design team of Susan and Alexandra Knight keep it in the family when it comes to designing kitchens and baths. Susan started in the industry nearly 40 years ago when she opened her interior design firm, Korts & Knight, in the San Francisco Bay area in 1975.
“My background is in interior design,” says Susan, noting that, over time, she transitioned into kitchens, then whole-home projects as clients began requesting design help beyond their living rooms. “Our specialties now are architecturally challenging jobs, and jobs that require creativity as well as custom cabinetry and design services, such as architectural detailing, space planning and interior selections for complete projects where multiple rooms are involved. My background in interior design provides an understanding about structure, color, scale and proportion…which are all critical in today’s design world.”
While Alexandra grew up in the business – alongside her mother, her father, Richard, and her brother, Spencer – she ventured outside of the family for a time, working in prestigious kitchen showrooms from California to London learning the tools of the trade that are necessary for entering the high-fashion world of kitchens.
