“I want my work to engage people, to enhance their daily ritual, to bring them together.”
Sophie De Christopher has design in her DNA. She is the third generation of a family interior design build business established in 1962, and is carrying on her heritage at Noll & Tam.
Sophie believes that creativity is innate, but requires work ethic and a disciplined curiosity to make the most of it. She feels there is so much to learn and is taking it on with the enthusiasm of someone who has always known what she was meant to do. “The satisfaction of making something that others can explore and experience, it’s amazing,” she says.
She is new to the Bay Area, having grown up in Palm Springs. While there is always a part of her that finds comfort in the familiar (the 110º heat?), she is enjoying the pace and flavor of her cool new home. She thinks the diversity helps her work. And coffee. Don’t forget the coffee.
