Cliff Fong was born in New York and has had a diverse upbringing residing in many countries around the world but is happy to call Los Angeles his home. He has been part of this fertile design community for two decades as an interior designer, fashion designer and entrepreneur.
As a fashion buyer, stylist and designer, he worked with Ron Herman and Maxfield amongst other international retailers and luxury brands. In 2004 he cofounded an artisanal unisex collection, Chatav Ectabit, with Sandy Dalal.
As an interior designer, he creates unique, personal and often unexpected environments, drawing from various inspirations. His work is largely residential but also includes many notable commercial spaces such as Madison Gallery, Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent, night spot H. Wood and Michael Voltaggio’s Ink restaurant. In 2009, with partners, he opened Galerie Half, a sprawling emporium of 20th century design, European antiques, architectural elements and art.
