Our journey began in 1854 in Louisville, Kentucky when a German immigrant, Gustave Bittner, opened up an interior design studio and custom wood shop. Understanding the art of woodworking, he used old world craftsmanship techniques to create custom, handmade furniture. Not stopping there, his team provided interior design services to their clients as well.  The Bittners’ brand of uncompromising quality took hold and spread throughout the country.


Today, Bittners is a leading interior design firm specializing in designing spaces without limits. Design transcends time and space. We understand how important your environment is to you. Your story, your life, and your experiences inspire the creative process in designing your space. We build that connection between you and your environment and believe that good design can transform lives.


Our cutting-edge interior design services include both residential and commercial projects. We focus on the details, starting with an understanding of a space and use exceptional vision, experience, and precise tailoring to create timeless environments. You can see our interior design work by our award-winning designers throughout the country. Our projects span from New York, California, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Texas, Utah, and Kentucky as well as New York City, Nantucket, Los Angeles, Chicago, and more.


Bittners continues the vision of Gustave Bittner with our on-site wood shop. Mastering the wood comes from blending cultivated talent with a deep understanding of old world craftsmanship. Our tradition of creating high-quality, custom furniture lives today.  Our master craftsmen work diligently creating handmade pieces from tables, chairs, dining room pieces, bureaus, and headboards to coffee tables, bookcases, wall panels, and so much more.  These crafted treasures are handed down from generation to generation.


With over 165 years of creating unique spaces, our signature brand lives on. We set the bar high and always design with an uncompromising commitment to quality. Our future is strong and vibrant which will propel us into our next 165 years. The best is yet to come!
