Susie Cohen set up her own interior design practice, Made By Cohen, in 2005 after working full-time for both Carr Design Group and Chris Connell Design since graduating from RMIT in 2000. The practice celebrates life, family and creativity. Cohen's designs tend toward simplicity, with great importance placed on beautifully executed details. A strong signature to her work is the use of natural light and honest materials that age gracefully and acquire their own patina over time.
