Interior Designer + Owner
Lauren found her passion in college during her first drafting class, organizing a space and creating good function by understanding scale and proportion.
Following her formal education at the Harrington College of Design, Lauren worked her way up the ranks until she was expertly managing high-end residential furniture showrooms in the iconic Merchandise Mart in downtown Chicago. While at the Mart she grew her hands-on experience with products, furnishing spaces, fabric-to-frame selections, buying, accessorizing, running a business, and working with designer clients on many high-profile projects.
