About Our Firm
Award winning designers Laura Buchner and Kirsten McCoy are the principal partners of Meadowbank Designs. Our firm was founded in 1982 by Penny Steele and was named for her former Main Line estate outside of Philadelphia, PA. From historic preservation, vacation homes, to additions and renovations, our firm has completed a wide range of projects throughout the country for generations of clients. We strive to redefine “modern traditional” interiors while still respecting our company’s history. We are best known for residential design combining traditional motifs with a modern sensibility and providing the highest quality of design excellence and personal service.
Our ability to combine bold or subtle colors and patterns with classic influences and updated flourishes establishes our signature style. We favor crisp lines, superior materials, fine detailing and never sacrifice quality. Always, we take a custom approach to suit all of our clients’ needs and no two projects end up looking the same. We listen to who the client really is, what they truly want and strive to give them something they never knew they really wanted. In the end, we like to have fun with our designs and look to collaborate with our clients to inject true personality into a home.
Whether a project calls for fine art and antiques or dog and child friendly rooms, we give attention to detail in all aspects of our work. We use only the best artisans and craftsman and we often custom- create any product in need of a design solution, be it furniture, wallpaper, textiles, light fixtures, millwork, or anything a client requires –even dishes for the kitchen.
During our years as Meadowbank Designs, many friends have shared their collective knowledge of design; notably Peter Zimmerman Architects, Archer and Buchanan Architects, Period Architects, Ranieri and Kerns and Associates, Griffiths Construction, Orion Builders and E.B. Mahoney Construction. Valued colleagues in architecture, construction, and design are integral parts in a profession where creating timeless design is not only an art form, but a team effort.
Located in Wayne, Pennsylvania on Philadelphia’s Main Line suburbs, Meadowbank Designs is currently busy working on projects in and around Philadelphia, the Pocono Mountains region, the New Jersey Shore area, New York, New England and have recently completed projects in Chicago, Indiana, Florida, Wyoming, California and Colorado.
