Shon Parker

The award-winning designer, who founded his eponymous firm in Atlanta in 2000, has long stood apart for his ability to straddle design aesthetics and moods, while always imbuing rooms with a noticeable energy or vibration. Parker innate abilities let him craft spaces that embody the end user’s very essence.

Parker has been cultivating his innate design abilities since childhood, when he began drawing house plans at the tender age of 10. By 18, Parker left a small but soulful Alabama town to study design at the Art Institute of Atlanta. His post-college career brought him from one boutique company to the esteemed Baker Furniture, where he designed floor displays throughout his 20s. Once, during his tenure at the renowned showroom, Parker slipped away to Chicago to showcase his original line of contemporary pottery in a slick, Gucci-esque display. They attracted overwhelming interest, including that of acclaimed designer Barbara Barry, who insisted that the vessels be shown in all of her subsequent Baker displays. In time, the designer also offered Parker a position at her firm, but he went out on his own instead, forming Shon Parker Design with partner Tim Coughlin in 2000.

Over the past 13 years, Shon Parker has fashioned rooms for the St. Regis Atlanta, won numerous awards for furniture design, appeared on national design television programs and blogs, collected countless media accolades and, most recently, designed in a Relais & Chateaux property The Lake Placid Lodge that serves as a favorite haunt of celebrities and regular site of Ralph Lauren fashion shoots. Always polished, consistently versatile, the spaces Shon Parker creates segue effortlessly among the classical, contemporary and rustic, mixing each discipline with amazing deftness. Whether Parker is outfitting a genteel lodge in the rugged Adirondacks or creating a contemporary environment for an urban dweller, the results remain the same: approachable, layered, sophisticated and personal, much like Parker himself. “I want people to feel welcome,” he says warmly. And in a Shon Parker-designed space, you always do.
