S+DLH is a Madrid studio founded in 2017 by interior designers Inés Sierra, Javier de la Higuera and Mercedes Sierra. The essence of their work lies in the balance, between abundance and moderation, between order and complexity. Each of his projects, whether interior architecture, design or creative direction, has its own signature where simplicity and quality of materials won’t be missing.

“We respect our context and rely on the traditions of classical design, but providing a timeless aesthetic, natural materials and modern principles of sobriety and refinement.”
