What is the design tip you just can't stress enough?
It can be comfortable and beautiful. La-Z-Boy is where design meets comfort, we don’t comprise on comfort or style.
What are your favorite La-Z-Boy fabrics right now and why?
My favorite fabric is piccolo, I love the texture and how it reflects the light and changes colors. The rusty red version of this velvet is the one I love the most; it works with all the different shades of red, burgundy and rust. It looks great on a sofa, a chair and even a pillow.
Do you have any “go-to” La-Z-Boy styles?
The Allegra chair, where style meets comfort and it's beautiful. A streamlined look with subtle details, it’s the perfect complement to today’s relaxed lifestyle. I love that it takes all fabrics really well, and blends in with essentially any sofa.
Where do you go to find your inspiration?
Inspiration can literally come from anywhere for me, be it family, music, or a crack in the sidewalk. What inspires me could be anywhere, and can come from anyone. That is why I am so blessed to have the opportunity to work with such a wide variety of people.
Why interior design? What intrigued you most about interior design?
Seeing my clients enjoying their homes and their eyes sparkle as they show it off is definitely what fuels my passion for design.
