Who are your design icons?
To name a few… Charles and Ray Eames, Florence Knoll, Hans Wegner…

What one item do you wish you owned?
A pair of Verner Panton’s Bachelor chairs.

Form vs. Function?
Both. ­Good design cannot exist without the other.

What do you drive?
A Mini Cooper S.

What are your sources of inspiration?
Everything. People, places, art, music, fashion, materials, buildings, life.

Where was my favorite place to live?
I’ve traveled many places but never lived anywhere else—Chicago’s a great place to come home to.

What’s your favorite room in your home?
The bedroom. I live in a first floor flat where adjoining rooms lack sunlight. So I recently swapped the bedroom and the living room and absolutely love waking up to the view of our garden.

In your opinion, what is the best designed item of all time?
The clothespin. Some things are simple—while other things are beautiful—the clothespin is both.

What are your interests outside of design?
Travel, bike riding, ping pong, cats, video/board games and getting ready to be a new mom.

What’s your signature?
My design style—honest forms with unexpected details meant to be discovered and make you smile.  

What’s your personal decorating style?
Creating a space that looks lived in using vintage and modern pieces—simple, clean and comfortable.

What’s your favorite element/possession?
My blanket from when I was 5.  It’s #1 on my list of things to grab if the place were to go up in flames.
