Welcome to AK Interiors. We're an award winning interior design firm, located in Lancaster, PA, founded by Alison McIndoe in 1996. Our firm provides both residential and commercial design services, from concept to completion. In the fall of 2015, we relocated our headquarters to downtown Lancaster. We also added a boutique home furnishings, accessories and gift shoppe. You can shop our carefully curated collection both in-store and online.
It’s my passion to help people to make the most out of where they live/work/play and I take that passion very seriously. I strive to create spaces that are classic and timeless and reflect my clients' personality. Growing up in small town Pennsylvania, my parent's store, McIndoe's, was an extension of our family. We lived it and breathed it! It must have sparked my entrepreneurial spirit, which I seemed to have carried with me my entire life. My earliest design memories stem back to cherished visits from my aunt and uncle. As they labored over the swatches and floor plans with each home renovation, I sat captivated, absorbing every detail. It was then that my passion for design began. I have been cultivating it ever since!
After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Interior Design, I worked numerous jobs in the design and building industry before venturing out on my own. I launched A.K. Interiors in 1996, and most recently expanded to include a boutique home furnishings shoppe in 2015.
Creative Director & Business Development
Since middle school You’ve Got Mail has had me dreaming of living in a brownstone in Brooklyn and working in a small shop that is “personal”. I might not have my brownstone just yet, but I love that I’m in a shop around the corner. I have a BS in Education and have taught in the general and special ed classroom. I eventually landed in fundraising and development for a non-profit on Long Island where I managed a furniture and housewares boutique. It was here that I started my marketing and event planning journey. I love creative projects, and working through all the fun details beginning to end.
Our philosophy is that interiors should reflect the needs and lifestyle of each individual client. Interiors are about the people who inhabit them, and that's what makes each space uniquely distinct.
