Ria Da Costa
We are delighted to welcome Ria Da Costa to our design team, taking our number of designers in the Edinburgh studio up to 8. Having worked for design firms both in Canada and the Caribbean, Ria has considerable industry knowledge. Her experience has varied from architecture, designing new residential builds, to interior design, ranging from corporate to residential interiors.
Ria trained at Ryerson University in Toronto, earning her Bachelor’s of Interior Design. She also recently strengthened her skills by gaining her Scottish qualification in furniture making and design at the Chippendale International School of Furniture in East Lothian. She was fortunate to have also spent time working alongside a couple of the furniture industry’s best craftsmen and designers, Canadian designer Michael Fortune and American designer/maker Scott Grove.
“I think my experience and skills will serve me very well at Jeffreys Interiors, giving me a keen eye for smart and fresh design ideas.” Outside of the design studio, Ria really enjoys cycling, reading, and travelling, where she can find loads of new design inspiration.
