Our Story

We are Arden Home. Three partners. Two cities. One vision.

Arden Home was built on our unified passion for creating meaningful spaces that reflect the people who call them home. We believe in weaving individual styles, stories, and lifestyles together to create unique spaces that our clients can truly call their own.

Arden derives from “ardent”, meaning passionate and enthusiastic and also a place of solitude and great beauty. Arden Home draws upon these attributes to create thoughtful and beautiful interiors.

Authentically, ardently, yours.
