Gigi Chapman founded Deguise Interiors in 1985. Growing up in historic Charleston, Gigi was born into a family surrounded by talented artists and interior designers. She grew up embracing the natural beauty of the low country, its architecture, its grace and an early appreciation for culture and the arts instilled by her fifth generation Charleston family. The breath-taking backdrop of the low country still inspires her work today. The colors and textures of nature are seen in most of her designs.
Desguise has thrived on a simple philosophy, that classic, timeless design never goes out of style. It endures the test of time and that quality does not have to be sacrificed to include a modern aesthetic.
Over the past 30 years, Gigi has forged partnerships with the best and most sought after vendors in home furnishings, fabric, wallpaer and lighting. Her ability to help her clients define their style and create a home that is a true reflection of how they want to live as well known in the area.
Her showroom in Ion, just ten minutes from downtown Charleston has become a local hang-out for design aficionados who are looking for that special unique piece or the perfect wallpaper to finish a room.
