me beautiful – that will be my life."

Found Design Studio
Established by Stacey Clarimundo, Found is an interior architecture and design studio rooted in the notion that successful design should transcend time.
As a studio we pride ourselves on listening closely to what each environment requires to reflect our client’s personality as well as their practical needs, all while staying true to our belief in multi-faceted, layered spaces.
Neither traditional nor modern, we like to live somewhere in the in-between and give credence to both.
Custom Design Services
Found Design Studio is experienced and adept at services that range from conceptualizing, designing and managing all aspects of interior architecture and/or design projects (including ground-up construction and full-gut renovations) to more decorative services that include developing concepts for and then procuring furniture, rugs, decorative lighting, window treatments, artwork and accessories.
We enjoy creating spaces that not only reflect our client’s aesthetic desires but ones that also function in a tangible way to hopefully make life at home a little easier and more enjoyable. We charge our standard hourly rate for this service and bill on a monthly basis for all time spent working on a client’s behalf.
To further inquire about our services please send us an email via our contact page.
In the Press
With over 18 years of experience in both commercial and residential interior architecture and design, four years after co-founding her first design firm, Stacey independently created and launched Found Design Studio in 2018. Shortly after, she and her team lovingly restored and re-imagined the 19th Century antique at 67 Main to serve as their new foundation, expanding to include a full studio space and retail offering, The Shop at Found, in 2022.
Stacey graduated from the Boston Architectural College’s School of Interior Architecture earning her Bachelor’s Degree and multiple academic awards along the way, including The Harold and Elsie M. Hurst A-1 Studio Prize in her first year and the prestigious Degree Project Studio Award in her final year. She has been NCIDQ certified since 2011, which is currently the only nationally recognized indicator of knowledge and proficiency in interior design principles.
With experience ranging from 28,000SF ground-up residential construction to multi-level full-gut renovations, Stacey brings a wealth of knowledge, ideas, and total commitment to each project. Stacey’s clients, partners and friends alike are drawn to her seemingly effortless aesthetic, deep-rooted values and magnetic authenticity.
“My environment, and being surrounded by beauty, is key to my own overall feeling of joy and happiness; I simply want to share that feeling with others.” – Stacey C.

Heather joined Found Design Studio as an Interior Designer + Project Manager in 2021. She brings ten years of multidisciplinary experience, meticulous attention to detail, and an innate ability to deliver on all points of the design sequence. She has a passion for a collaborative environment, and seeing work completed to the highest possible potential. Heather’s love for hand drawing natural elements and being in her garden bring an organic approach to her design aesthetic.
While studying Interior Architecture at The Boston Architectural College, receiving multiple awards and scholarships throughout her tenure, Heather also worked full-time assisting a five-member interior design staff at an award-winning architectural practice. After graduating Magna cum Laude at the top of her class in 2018, Heather became an Interior Designer in her own right. In addition to her design prowess, she continues to improve processes and procedures that advance the team overall.

Procurement Specialist, Ashley Young, joined the FDS team in 2019 bringing nearly a decade of deft interior design business administration, as well as a strong foundation in fine furnishings. She is an eternal optimist with a forward thinking approach, adding levity and ease to the team dynamic and a reliable and supportive foundation for projects and timelines.
In 2010, after many years as a home furnishings buyer in the Bay Area region, Ashley left the corporate world and the West Coast for boutique design agency work in New England. She transitioned into interior design to pursue her passion for a more holistic and multi-faceted approach to the home and home design business.
Ashley received a BA in Psychology and Spanish from the University of Texas in Austin, and has developed her skills in working environments rather than formal design school training. Her background offers her a broad perspective on human relationships, motivations and communication, essential to the core of any well-run design firm. Ashley lives in Marblehead and appreciates the joys of boating and beaching with her two boys, husband and loyal yellow labrador.
