We are SPREAD, a communications firm specializing in public relations, advertising, and marketing services for the home furnishings industry.

We value the beauty, sustainability and inclusivity of design, working with all types of clients, from industry leaders to cult favorites, start-ups to legacy brands.

Nice to meet you.

Twenty years ago, our founders Stephanie Somogyi and Tyler Hamilton Larmee came together to form SPREAD, marrying their experience, skills and networks to create an agency built on relationships, trust, transparency, and humor.

Based out of both New York and Charlotte, with both national and international clients, we help companies in the luxury manufacturing, interiors, and hospitality sectors build their brands with media, designers, and consumers.

Five years later, she partnered with Tyler, forming the current iteration of the company, the product of 20 years of experience and their honest love and genuine passion for the industry.

Stephanie‘s expertise lies in helping brands reach significant media milestones, owing to her strong relationships with editors, writers, thought leaders, and industry experts. Stephanie‘s ability to craft compelling brand narratives and strategically push messaging is what truly drives results.

While Tyler and Stephanie jointly oversee all activities at SPREAD, Tyler leads the company’s advertising business, enjoying the relationships she’s developed with the nation’s top shelter publications and studying the ever-evolving publishing landscape. She understands that one of the key components of any good communications firm is relationship building, and it’s those relationships that drive her forward to create the perfect program for her clients.
