Garrow was born and raised in Montreal, Canada where he attended the prestigious McGill University’s Architecture program. After completing his formal education, Garrow moved to Boston, MA where he gained six years of experience at the renowned offices of interior designer William Hodgins—before deciding to take a bite out of the “Big Apple.” Garrow has been in New York since relocating in 2000. After working for several design powerhouses in New York City, Garrow established his own design firm in 2001.
Garrow’s classically trained architectural background is the foundation for most of his interior design work, stating, “The architecture is what sets the tone and tells you what you need to do with a space.”
Recently Garrow's new Park Avenue residence was featured in House Beautiful Magazine, formerly the home of Fred Astaire. Garrow has honed the classic elegance of this prewar apartment, while restoring it to a former glory era, and was able to simultaneously infuse a contemporary undertone.
Garrow presides over a wide range of projects ranging from a 20,000 square foot barn-turn-residence in Greenwich, CT, to the multiplicity of apartments and residential projects in Manhattan, residences in the ever-stylish Palm Beach, and large corporate headquarters and office spaces in New York.
Garrow participated in the 2009 exclusive Kips Bay Designer showhouse, where Garrow transformed the smallest room in the house (barely the size of a small walk-in closet) into a jewel-box of a space, using simple techniques such as paint, and scale to create drama, focus and style.
The company’s extensive portfolio of work has been extensively featured in national and international magazines such as House Beautiful, Traditional Home, New York Spaces, and Architectural Digest, with Garrow’s own apartment most recently being in the New York Times, House Beautiful and on television with Bill Stubb’s ‘A Moment of Luxury’, and NYC Open House….
