Alexandria, Virginia has always been the home of
Claire Schwab Interior Design, Inc.
|Old Town Alexandria, known for its historic significance, is now a neighborhood not just of revolutionary town houses and cobblestones, but also of modern takes on the town house, and newly constructed waterside residences that add a different dimension of charm. The neighborhood is home to many local businesses and community organizations, and is especially dear to Claire Schwab Interior Design, Inc., as Claire Schwab’s first shop, Old Town Window Treatments & Design, Inc., was opened there in 1994. Now, our office and workroom in Alexandria provide a different setting for our creative endeavors. With the famous Mount Vernon estate nearby and the water of the Potomac within view, inspiration is all around us.Claire Schwab began her community involvement twenty- two years ago with the Junior League of Greater Washington. She then moved her volunteering efforts closer to home and started fundraising for The Campagna Center, an organization dedicated to serving families and children in Alexandria. Claire has held various leadership roles through The Campagna Center, has participated in the Scottish Walk Holiday Parade, and has offered her design services both in decorating the center and for various home tours. She and her firm have also been featured designers in the National Symphony Orchestra Show Houses to support The Kennedy Center.|
Claire participates in various church and school fundraising through generous silent auctions, donating both consultations and accessories, and is also currently serving The Girl Scouts of The United States of America organization in her fifth year as the Girl Scout Troop Leader for St. Mary’s School. Amongst her other activities, Claire is proud to have been a consistent supporter of Habitat for Humanity, engaging in yearly fundraising drives.
An active member of The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), Claire has held various leadership roles since 2000 and loves dedicating time to design education and other nationally recognized design organizations. We salute all of the support and efforts of our fellow community members.
