About Us

Nelson Barnum Interiors was established in 1995 and is a full service design studio committed to providing clients exquisite interiors,
impeccable design and incomparable service.

Located in the heart of "old town" Scottsdale, nestled in an English garden, resides the Nelson Barnum Studio. The historic building provides
home-like vignettes filled with 19th and 20th century European antiques, custom upholstery, art, and an array of lamps and accessories.

Our talented designers are experienced in all facets of design with portfolios that include both residential and commercial projects, corporate
offices, and boutiques. In addition, we offer bicoastal design services and consultations. Our design team has worked with clients in
California, Utah, New Mexico, Colorado, Nebraska, Ohio, Florida, New York and Canada and is available to serve other areas as well.
