Algotsson Design is a Philadelphia-based design consultancy, providing clients with residential interior design and decoration, staging, set design/styling and a signature line of hand-built furniture for residential and commercial spaces. In addition, we collaborate with design professionals to source and create  commissioned furniture.



The look and feel of our surroundings conveys who we are and how we see ourselves in the world. Not to be confused with fashion, it is our style, it tells our story, and in a way, it is also our brand. My passion is to help tell that story and to create that place where our day-to-day world lives.

Sharne Algotsson’s lengthy career in the field of visual design and love of interiors began as an architectural draftsman. But it wasn’t long until her passion turned to the lives of those who resided in those spaces, and she quickly began creating interior worlds for them.

Her time spent in West Africa and Sweden (her second home), has greatly inspired her work. She excels at seamlessly bringing together varying styles and inspirations, yet always maintaining the signature identity of her client. 

Sharne has worked with residential interior design, furniture design, photo styling, and location scouting, and has worked for style giants, such as:

  • IKEA + IKEA Communications
  • BoConcept
  • Ross-Simons
  • Spode China
  • HunterDouglas
  • Twist, Luxury Boutique, Co-owner

She is also the co-author of the ground-breaking The Spirit Of African Design (Clarkson Potter), author of African Style: Down to the Details (Clarkson Potter), and City Living (Rockport Books).
