Harken Interiors is the charismatic partnership between Jaclyn Moser and Chris Sommers, whose complementary skills and shared vision have brought life to a truly boutique design firm. Founded in 2015, Harken Interiors derives its name from hearken, meaning to listen. Jaclyn and Chris believe in the tremendous power of collaboration, an integrated approach that starts with the client’s vision and extends to each person whose product, idea, or service contributes to the success of the project. Throughout the design process, they strive each step of the way to find the authentic voice and signature moments that when combined, form a truly unique, memorable, and meaningful environment.

Experienced in hospitality, restaurant, and luxury residential design, Harken Interiors brings a sophisticated, fresh, thoughtful sensibility to research, design, and execution. Harken Interiors offers a wide range of capabilities including space planning, concept development, furniture and material selections, custom fabrication, construction drawings, procurement, and construction administration. Honest, imaginative, and emotionally resonant, the work and people of Harken Interiors create new experiences for guests to explore and love.

Jaclyn Moser possesses a creative energy that is conceptually driven, deriving from the interior architecture to tell a story­. An expert in furniture and material development, each piece she procures is thoughtful and holds special meaning. She has experience in hotel and resort, restaurant, retail, and luxury and mixed-use residential, which she acquired while at Simeone Deary Design Group and Charles Sparks + Company. Jaclyn earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design from Harrington College of Design and a Bachelor of Science in Marketing and International Business from Pennsylvania State University. She also holds certificates from Domus Academy in Milan for Hotel Design and Central Saint Martins College in London for Retail Design. In addition, she brings advertising account management, brand development, and magic-making experience stemming from her time at Disney’s Yellow Shoes Creative Group and Walt Disney World Entertainment.

Chris Sommers excels at tapping into what makes a concept relevant, timeless, and beautifully functional. Having over ten years of experience in seven countries, he brings with him an extraordinary knowledge of cultural trends, trade management, and operational requirements. Previously at Simeone Deary Design Group and Paul Duesing Partners, Chris designed and managed projects spanning high-end boutique hotels, restaurants, and luxury residences including beach villas and mountain homes. While building relationships with clients at MGM, Four Seasons, Loews, Starwood, and Hyatt, he has developed a keen understanding of brand excellence and application of distinguishing design. Chris received his Bachelor of Science in Interior Design from the University of Cincinnati and is NCIDQ certified.
