Irish-born Clodagh has been a constant force in the design world. Her professional trajectory has remained steadfast: to remain true to herself and to produce quality, inspirational and life-enhancing design. She passionately believes that good design can support well-being, and her pioneering use of Feng Shui, Chromotheraphy, Biophilia, and sustainable materials has enriched her projects with an unmistakable look, structure and flow that appeals to all the human senses. Widely recognized as a a leader in the green design movement, she aligns herself with companies and vendors who also embody this ethic, as well as fostering relationships with companies who strive to contribute philanthropically to their communities. In her studio in Manhattan's Noho neighborhood, Clodagh oversees three distinct divisions: Clodagh Signature, the product design group for her many licensees; Clodagh Collection, an on-line showroom highlighting Clodagh and carefully edited home furnishings and accessories from all over the world; and Clodagh Design, her design services studio. In 2009, Clodagh celebrated her 25th anniversary of design in New York. Some of her top honors include: Interior Design Hall of Fame; Interior Design Best of Year Awards; and honorary doctorates from the New York School of Interior Design and the San Francisco Academy of Art.
