The Design Team
Soucie Horner, LTD

Shea Soucie is passionate about architecture, design and form. Her ability to translate a client’s wishes into defined space allows Soucie Horner to go beyond the realm of traditional interior design and create floorplans with graceful proportions, appealing sight lines and a gracious flow among rooms.

Soucie attended the E`cole Speciale d’Architecture in Paris and the Art Institute of Chicago, earning a degree in interior architecture. Exposure to the scale and proportion of Europe’s Classical architecture, in addition to the Modern and Art Deco architectural landmarks of Chicago, provided touchstones for her broad visual portfolio.

Before striking out on her own with Martin Horner in 2000, Soucie worked as a design partner for five years at a residential design firm in Chicago. She resides with her husband, Chris and their two young children, Charles and Carin, in Chicago.

Martin Horner has been a prominent member of the design industry for 15 years and is known for his impeccable taste in furniture, fabric and decoration. Wonderfully adaptive, Horner has a natural ability to define a palette of colors, textures and objects that create lovely, livable homes.  Prior to founding Soucie Horner with partner Shea Soucie, Horner worked for four years as a design partner for a residential design firm in Chicago. 

Horner attended the Ecole Speciale d’Architecture in Paris and the Art Institute of Chicago, earning a degree in interior architecture. He also holds a degree in business administration from Butler University. While studying at the Art Institute, Horner was selected as a Taliesin intern and moved to Spring Green, Wisconsin to document the accessories and artwork in the primary home and studio of Frank Lloyd Wright. 

The carefully constructed beauty and rich experience of life in Paris and Taliesin expanded Horner’s view of good design. A truly beautiful lifestyle adapts itself easily to gracious entertaining, exuberant laughter, quiet conversation or a restive afternoon. Horner’s eye leaves no contributing detail unnoticed, no element of a homes’ unique character to chance. 

He maintains homes in Chicago and Traders Point, Indiana.
