Power designer-influencer Elizabeth Sutton (b. 1989) is a millennial “mom-preneur”-artist who is changing the world of interiors one smart, colorful product at a time. Known for her bright, bold stylings and good vibes ethos, Sutton’s distinctive creations for the home, office and the good life have been recognized by Architectural Digest, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and top tastemakers from New York City to Los Angeles. Indicative of her originality and broad appeal, Sutton’s varied client roster includes celebrities and luminaries, from Kourtney Kardashian, Paris Hilton, and Pitbull to Andrea Bocelli and Iris Apfel. She has won ‘Best in Show’ at designer showcases; been featured in Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing; and was included in Forbes’ inaugural ‘Next 1000’ list of top up-and-coming American entrepreneurs, dubbed “the artist and designer to know right now.”
Her Miami and New York City-based fine art and design firm, Elizabeth Sutton Collection, caters to residential and hospitality clients seeking to make a statement—and have a little fun. Sutton’s portfolio includes original art works and a rainbow of products, including acrylic prints, dazzling clutches, bold-patterned rugs, and even original coloring books. She is committed to shaping spaces and experiences, and is continually on the hunt for strategic partnerships and licensing deals to bring her unique design vision to life. Recent creative collaborations include TileBar, Janovic, The Whale, a high-concept office building in Brooklyn, NY, and ongoing projects with the Eden Rock Hotel in St. Barths.
Complementing her natural-born talent, Sutton’s commercial savvy and innate ability to tap into trends keeps her at the forefront of today’s most influential designers, whose relevance spans generations, genders and markets.
In Fall 2021, building on the growing work-from-home trend—and a desire to bring more comfort and joy to our daily lives—Sutton launched an exclusive line of office chairs with Raynor, the largest manufacturer and distributor of office furniture in the United States.
Beyond her dynamic career, Sutton is passionate about empowering women and prides herself on authenticity. Her rise in social media has been nothing short of meteoric. A 30-something single mother of two who’s known trauma from the inside, Sutton is committed to talking openly about struggle and resilience and isn’t afraid to be intimate. Launched in 2020, she shares her candid thoughts, opinions and hard-earned lessons in entrepreneurship—and in life—on her bi-monthly podcast Success by Design. And 2021 saw the debut of her YouTube channel, which gives followers—her “Good Vibe Tribe”—a window into her day-to-day life and features an appealing mix of everything from business tips and art technique tutorials to parenting advice and favorite recipes.
A sixth-generation New Yorker committed to ensuring her home city’s legacy through philanthropy, Sutton has also raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for such formidable institutions as the 92nd Street Y, ArtStart, City Harvest, United Hatzalah, Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, and Lenox Health Greenwich Village.
Elizabeth Sutton is an artist for our time, with works spanning diverse industries and media, a relentless drive to pursue her dreams, and a profound dedication to lifting people up. “Life is not always rainbows and butterflies,” Sutton likes to say. “But my art is.”
