Founder and Creative Director of Leyden Lewis Design Studio, Lewis has a background which encompasses the culturally rich Caribbean heritage of Trinidad and Tobago, urban sophistication, and classical European Modernism. His unrivaled aesthetic has made him the celebrated New York designer that he is today.
Leyden Lewis's diverse range of projects includes luxury residences on Manhattan's famous Museum Mile and a contemporary art-filled winter retreat at the Breakers Row in Palm Beach, Florida. Currently under construction is a full-scale architectural renovation of a nineteenth-century Victorian brownstone with a rear garden located in the historic district of Park Slope, Brooklyn. He has designed model apartments public corridors and lobbies for many of New York and New Jersey's major real estate management and marketing agencies, such as Rose Associates, Insignia, The Sunshine Group, and The Marketing Directors.
As a fine artist, his work has been exhibited widely and has received much acclaim. In 2004, Leyden Lewis was invited by the curator Thelma Golden to participate in the Harlemworld: Metropolis and Metaphor show at the Studio Museum in Harlem. Critic Herbert Muschamp referred to Lewis's work as "the poetic heart" of the exhibition. When it is desirable, Leyden Lewis Design Studio assists and consults with building art collections for clients.
