The mother/daughter team created Friday and Genter Interior Design, LLC, which has grown over the past 15 years into a highly regarded firm with an established reputation for creating beautiful and timeless designs.

Suzanne works closely with each of her clients to create living spaces that accurately reflect their lifestyle and personality. She is inspired by her love of travel, and strives to weave unique touches from the places she has visited into her work. Suzanne often blends both classic and modern designs to create interiors that are welcoming, personal and elegant and designs spaces that work in harmony with their surroundings, while enhancing their natural beauty. Suzanne’s work has been featured in the Pittsburgh Tribune Review home section, Table Magazine, Pittsburgh Magazine and Rooms Magazine.
