Tracy Hain


Tracy Hain comes from a varied career background that has included hotel management, private banking, textile conservation, marketing, and branding. This experience was the foundation for her own successful London based interior and product design company which she started in 2005. Her childhood took her all over the world to live and study including Switzerland, Denmark, Sweden, the United Kingdom, Austria, Canada, and the US.


After completing her undergraduate degree in Business Administration, she furthered her studies with courses in textile and paper conservation and a degree in Environmental Design in Canada. Tracy speaks three languages and has worked on assignments in all corners of the globe.


Managing projects, accounts and people comes naturally to her organized nature and she approaches every project first by listening and then ascertaining what path should be taken with focus and care.  Having moved more times than she can count, she is sensitive to cultural and aesthetic differences and uses this knowledge to create meaningful relationships and exceptional interiors in the residential and corporate realm. With her attention to detail, practical approach and her creative sensibility, she designs products and schemes that are fine-tuned and unique.
