B. ANDREW TORREY - principal designer
B. Andrew Torrey is the founder of B.A. Torrey, a New York City based interior design firm focusing on private residential and corporate commissions, custom furnishings, and real estate development projects.
Founded in 2013 after Andrew left a successful career in Real Estate. Representing more than half a billion dollars in residential property transactions, Andrew was an integral member of one of The Wall Street Journal’s Top 25 Sales Teams Nationwide. In 2012, his team sold the most expensive co-op in Manhattan’s history to date – a $65 million penthouse duplex at 785 Fifth Avenue
Inspired by superb craftsmanship and the use of luxurious, tactile finishes and materials, Andrew creates spaces that reflect their owner’s personality while also elevating them to a place of bold sophistication. As he was recently quoted in Forbes Magazine: “It costs a lot to have exactly what you want, and my clients work extremely hard to be able to afford just that.”
Recent and current projects include a studio house in London, a family home in Oyster Bay Cove, a townhouse in Brooklyn Heights, a duplex loft in West Chelsea, and custom designing the Brooklyn Nets player’s lounge at both The Barclays Center and The Official Brooklyn Nets Training Center.
Growing up as a ranch hand on the outskirts of the original “lawless cowtown” of Dodge City, Kansas, Andrew was actively involved in 4-H and the Future Farmers of America. As a teenager, he traveled the country competitively showing his family’s American Quarter Horses on the national show circuit, becoming a multi-time World Champion finalist.
