SR/A Interior Design was born as the passion project of its president and CEO Sabine Roy. Early in its 15 year history, the team cultivated the commitment to client relationships and the idea that everyone involved in a project, regardless of your role, was building together. The firm maintains this close-knit culture that manifests in high quality work and intimate client relationships, yielding highly personalized boutique design tailored to each project.
In 2013, SR/A launched La Collection, a retail gallery that allows the firm to house the antiques, art and unique furnishings that it incorporates into projects. As an affirmation to it’s strong ties to the community, La Collection now showcases all original art from local artists in the DMV area. SR/A prides itself on these strong relationships with local artists and strives to serve as a community showroom for the vibrant art culture in our backyard.
With its values rooted in community, SR/A regularly hosts charity events and art receptions for our Chevy Chase/Bethesda neighborhood. In April 2018, the reception of Real Art on a Shoestring welcomed over a hundred art enthusiasts into the La Collection space to appreciate the careful curation of works by 20 participating artists. The festive energy of the evening celebrating art and community serves as another reminder for SR/A’s mission to foster relationships in everything it purses.
As we reflect on the ethos that make SR/A thrive, excitement is building for its newest event set for September 29: Art x Arts Pop-up, a community mixer that plays with a fine art-meets-martial arts theme. La Collection partners with our neighbor, Ascend Institute of Martial Arts, to bring an afternoon of mingling with art brought out galleries and displayed in an unusual, refreshing space.
