After graduating from Washington University in St. Louis with a degree in Political Science, Alison Damonte moved to San Francisco with no job, no apartment and one Hans Wegner chair she found on the street. With a twinkle in her eye and a tireless Iowa work ethic, she dreamed of becoming an architect. A marketing position at WRNS Studio and classes at UC Berkeley Extension, however, led Alison to realize that her passion for wild patterns, clashing colors and disco balls was probably better suited to interior design than architecture. Honing her skills at Martha Angus and Brayton Hughes Design Studios, Alison struck out on her own in 2012 with her namesake boutique firm, Alison Damonte Design.
Alison Damonte Design is a residential interior design studio located in San Francisco’s vibrant Mission District. We are fans of bold colors, artful composition, innovative use of materials, as well as any nod to the past - especially with rare vintage furniture. And, most importantly, we love to have fun!
