Kristiana Forder, Director and Head Designer
Kristiana is the owner of Modern and Classic Interiors and is successfully expanding the business year on year.
Many achievements have been accomplished, including completing the interior design and procurement of a flagship property for Sycamore Developments, which recently won an International Property Award for the best property in Surrey.
Krissy's experience in the design world began at art college and progressed to BA Hons degrees in Product Design and Interior Design. Upon completing her studies, she began her professional career in London working on contract and residential interior design.
From this point, Krissy moved on to work within Surrey at a residential interior design consultancy before setting up Modern and Classic Interiors in 2010.
Through understanding her client's requirements and lifestyle, Krissy produces homes which are comfortable and stylish, but always has the client's aims and desires at the forefront of the design, in order to produce something which feels like home.
The design practice is a flourishing business with a successful studio in Baker Street, Weybridge where new designs are created everyday.
