For 18 years, New Orleans native, Katie Koch, has been designing and engineering beautiful, hand-sewn window treatments for a discerning clientele. From the simple and tailored to the lush and opulent, her imaginative drapery creations transcend trends and interpret her client’s individual aesthetics with a keen eye for detail.
Having sewn since childhood and worked in the retail end of fashion for several decades, Koch launched her eponymous business, Katie Koch Drapery, in 1997. She initially worked out of her home and later opened a workroom specializing in drapery, slipcovers, pillows, bedcoverings and upholstery. In 2008, she and her husband, Marc Levy, opened Oops, a consignment store dealing in designer furniture and home décor.
Over the past five years, Koch has expanded Katie Koch to include a design showroom with an extensive fabric library and a personally-curated inventory of vintage furniture with an emphasis on Mid-Century Modern pieces, many of which have a designer provenance. Both her shop, located near the Magazine Street shopping district, and her website, are destinations for the design trade and the consumer with an interest in sophisticated and fresh interior design directions.
In 2013, Katie Koch added a new line of classic, Billy Baldwin-inspired upholstered furniture and an urbane collection of snakeskin home-accessories imported from Europe and exclusively available to the New Orleans area at Katie Koch.
