Q & A

What is the design tip you just can’t stress enough?

Think of the texture of the lampshade, the texture of your pillows or carpet; or maybe it’s a tray that you put on your table.  These are really important ways to tie the space together with a little bit of texture and depth without filling up the room in a way that feels overwhelming.

How do you determine the right style for your customers?

I really like to spend time with my clients and understand how they use the room. Do children use the room? Do they have pets?  Is it a family or just a couple? Really understanding how the clients use the room helps me to design the space based on their needs.

What is one La-Z-Boy product that you can’t live without?

It would definitely be the Leo Ottoman.  It’s so functional.  It’s only about 21 inches x 21 inches, has storage and a tray, and you can design it in any material including leather and prints. It’s a great way to bring in some color, as well as storage into the space. It’s tying in that form and function, while also bringing in an element of design.
