Kobby Mason Akuffo is the founder and Principal of Mason Royale Designs whose focus is on “affordable luxury” interior design. Kobby was recently featured as an All-Star during a Chicago Bulls game in collaboration with BMO Harris Bank.

Mason Royale Designs was recognized for changing the narrative and approach to interior design. Kobby believes that smart interior design approaches are achievable and more importantly, must have style that responds to the occupants well-being and way of life. Kobby’s perspective on interior design is that, it has to be affordable and not limited to elitists. When his vision and skill for design is curated for a space, there is an emotion that is evoked and a narrative that comes to life when the owner(s) occupy the built environment. The space reflects an atmosphere of serenity, relaxation, comfort, joy, unity – family/friends, and dialogue. This is Kobby’s area of expertise and what sets him apart from other designers as an All-Star in his community.
