Raised by designers in the countryside of Connecticut, Sophie Randall learned at a very early age that beauty and function can, and should, go hand-in-hand. Currently studying for her BFA in interior architecture and design at Columbus College of Art & Design in Ohio, with a Spring 2021 graduation date, Randall is particularly drawn to the idea of eclecticism: mixing antique forms with contemporary stylistic choices. She has begun working in CAD, but prefers moving to hand drawn perspectives to give a more personal view into her ideas.
After working on a film with Laurie Simmons and Lena Dunham, My Art, Randall realized her love for spacial transformation, and the scale of possible changes within the small sets. From there, Randall has spent her time outside of school working at Connecticut-based interior and architectural design firm, Hendricks Churchill. Working from two-dimensional plans and schedules, Sophie has carried out projects from initial client meetings, to the end product installations. She is always visiting museums, textile shops and production sites to study process and elements. Variables like patinas and wood grains are her current sub-study of furniture history and design.
