Penny Drue Baird, the owner of Dessins, LLC, based in Paris and New York, is an internationally renowned interior designer celebrated for her top-tier interior design and architectural skills.

Baird creates atmospheres filled with architectural detail, warmth, and sophisticated charm; she has a penchant for European traditions and style. She is recognized for her in-depth knowledge of sources, especially in Western Europe. Baird divides her time between her offices on Madison Avenue and her outpost in Paris.

Dessins’ work is eclectic in the true sense of the word, blending different styles, mixing a cocktail from a client's dreams and way of life. Dessins likes to think of its work as “couture,” completely tailored to its clients and their objectives. Whether Traditional French, Casual Chic, or Minimalist, Dessins realizes its clients’ fantasies.
