Elizabeth was inspired to pursue a career in design after having studied in Paris and the French Alps, and later a yearlong adventure traveling and volunteering in South America. Experiencing each country’s unique culture, rich history of textile, and use of color motivated Elizabeth to explore her creativity.
A native of Riverwoods, IL, Elizabeth received her BA from University of Colorado and later continued her education at Chicago’s Harrington College of Design. After working for some of Chicago’s top interior design firms, Elizabeth opened her namesake company in 2013. She currently lives in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago with her husband and two little boys. On weekends you can typically find her hanging out at a local park, wrangling the kids!
