Rooted in an affinity for the landscape and a lifetime of dramatic architectural imagery, designer and artist Larry Kornegay finds much of his inspiration within the intricacies of nature.
Larry’s love of concrete as a sculptural medium, combined with his passion for gardening and fine architecture led to the design and production of his first landscape containers. He continues to find inspiration in the symbiotic relationship between the creative process of designing site-specific pieces for public space, collaborating with fellow designers, and making sculpture.
Kornegay Design® is dedicated to creating original, timeless designs realized through exceptional craftsmanship.
We believe that truly sustainable products are a combination of enduring structural integrity and innovative design. Simple in form yet intricately beautiful, Kornegay Design’s products are more than quality handcrafted site furnishings; they are sculptural elements that enhance any environment.
