Allison Johnston and Mary Deupree are the Principal Designers and Owners of Lander Lofton, a design firm based in Charleston, South Carolina. The firm’s designs have been featured in national magazines, including Better Homes & Gardens and Cottage Style.
A native of Georgia, Allison is formally trained as a graphic designer, but she has transitioned her keen design eye mostly to interiors. After years of design experience, Allison’s design style tends toward classic and modern – with a touch of whimsy – and she has a knack for discovering extraordinary pieces. At home, Allison spends time with her husband, Ben, and their daughters Marann and James.
Mary’s love for interior design began at an early age, tagging along to showrooms with her father, a retired furniture executive in her hometown of High Point, North Carolina. Mary actually holds a PhD in a field unrelated to interior design, but an inherent knack for combining patterns, textures, and colors led her to career in interiors, where her education in history and extensive world travels well serve her clients. She creates well-balanced spaces that combine touches of vintage with contemporary elements and always reflect her client’s individual style and personality. Designing beautiful spaces brings Mary joy, but her greatest passion is raising her daughters, Charlotte and Sophie, along with her husband, Will.
