Behind the Scenes with Chimera Interior Design

By Rachel Cohen | March 1, 2020 | Home & Real Estate

Secrets of a Top Design Firm

Eclecticism, luxury details, and refinement remain the key words when it comes to creating for Chimera Interior Design’s prestigious clients worldwide: private residences, office buildings, hotels, restaurants, yachts and jets are among their extensive portfolio. Chimera’s imaginative and forward-thinking design team leads successful award-winning projects around the nation.


Inspired by working with her clients, lead designer Valerie Borden, Allied ASID, treats the process as a collaboration, not dictation. She has a passion for modern architecture and design, and is a master of understated good taste. She takes a hands-on approach and manages every detail of Chimera’s projects, leaving her clients to relax and enjoy the process.


“I am a design chameleon with the agility to adapt to unique environments,” explains Borden. “I strive to incorporate the personality and lifestyle of every client.”

Celebrating 25 years in business, the firm shows is thriving with an enviable array of design projects on the horizon.
