About Us

For ten years, Dumais has been subtly redefining residential experiences for city, country, beach, and beyond. The process always begins with the client, whose personality and mode of living are the central focus of each project. Led by founder and principal Kevin Dumais, the firm provides a full range of services, from styling and space plans to furniture design and construction management. With the logistics capably handled, clients are free to focus on the meaningful task at hand: envisioning a living space that’s perfectly—sometimes surprisingly—tailored to their wants and needs. Dumais routinely works in collaboration with architects and other specialists, including furniture artisans, lighting, landscape, and art consultants.

How would you describe your style?

Inspired by mid-century style, Dumais tailors classic principles of design to suit each client’s world. Craftsmanship and function take priority over ornament and a pleasing sense of proportion is always a main point of focus. The end product is stylish and calm, a well-edited mix of luxurious fabrics, fine furniture and natural light.

We recently completed a renovation project for newlyweds that hired us to redesign their 2800 square foot loft in Tribeca. Their requirements were to better suit the roughhewn apartment to a level that matched their tastes and lifestyle needs. The scope included an architect’s gut renovation, allowing for a thorough reimagining of the space. They gave us considerable creative license, making this project an especially vivid example of our signature style. Among the priorities, were an improved articulation of the main living area, with customized kitchen and the addition of a home office and closet space, as well as a general lightening and softening of the apartment. To capture the youth and energy of the couple we chose a mix of mid-century and contemporary furniture and kept the palette to an earthy mix of neutral tones that would nevertheless allow the industrial architecture to remain a feature.
