About EM Design Studio

EMD is an award-winning studio defined by a signature evoking a sense of calm, ease and beauty within an elegant multi-layered narrative.

Founded by Elizabeth Metcalfe in 1999, the studio has garnered praise, both nationally and internationally, for interiors that are without exception, beautiful, innovative and highly personalized. Their designs are recognized for their softened approach to contemporary design incorporating an unparalleled fusion of refined furnishings and materiality. The studio's work has been recognized by the prestigious Andrew Martin Design Review, Volumes 22, 24 and 26, "Top One Hundred Designers of the World". EMD was awarded "Best Private Residence in Canada, 2018" in London, England, and "Top Global Living Space, 2017", by the International Design and Architecture Association.

EMD is guided by a vision to create homes that are refined, enduring and deeply personal. They believe a home must enhance happiness, support well-being and positively contribute to a full and enjoyable life, while defining a meaningful expression of place. Each EMD home is thoughtfully curated with an obsession to quality, detail and sophistication.

Their collaborative approach is key to delivering full scope projects from conception, design development, build process to final installation. Ethical business practices and strong organizational methodology to administration and project co-ordination facilitates and supports the studio's design work. Clients are the beneficiaries of a design developed with a collective objective that is ultimately stronger, broader and acutely innovative in its approach.
