Creating a Personalized Space
Here at Ambiente, we are committed to helping you create personalized, sophisticated, and functional designs that will match your lifestyle and needs. Our top priority is to help curate a space full of personality and sophistication – one that the whole family truly enjoys. Your home or business should be a space that encompasses your lifestyle while also maintaining functionality and aesthetics. Not only that, but sticking to your budget is an important part of designing a space.
When you work with a designer at Ambiente Modern Furniture, you can feel confident that you are collaborating with someone who has extensive experience helping individuals bring their dream home or business to life. Our designers are ASID certified. An ASID designer is someone that has a certain level of design experience and has taken the ASID exam to become a certified designer.
The Design Process
With Ambiente Modern Furniture, we make the design process as easy as possible for both the designer and the individual.
Our designers use a multitude of tools throughout the process. These include technical tools and skills used while speaking with an individual to comprehend exactly how they are looking to transform their space. These skills assist in balancing the colors of the space, considering the focal points, and its functionality. We use planning softwares, such as AutoCAD and Photoshop, to mock up exactly what the space will look like. From there, our designers can assist you in finding the perfect furniture to bring home.
We make sure every member of the family is involved in the process, creating a close working relationship with each person. We also carefully plan and schedule services and meetings to ensure that our timeline matches your expectations. These services may include furniture and finishing selections, art selection, schematics, and space planning.
There is a design fee involved with working with our design team. This price will always vary depending on the project at hand. Our fee starts at $75. The fee will reflect all of the project details. Whether you are remodeling, working on a new construction, downsizing, or something else, this affects the design fee. This fee will be determined through our consultation, as it is unique to that client’s project.

I graduated from ECU’s School of Art and Design in 2017, and have been in the furniture design and sales industry for the past 3 years. I have a deep appreciation for all arts; physical, digital, musical and design. Having an Art Degree helps me in making your vision a reality by thinking outside the box and outside the realm of traditional Design. I would love to help create your dream space and to assist you in any of your home furnishing needs.
Intensely passionate about discovering more beauty in my life, aided by multiple degrees and a career in the field of Fine Arts, Filmmaking and Art History, I effortlessly design memorable spaces. I move through interior design concepts as if at a compositional play – building either a subtle and serene harmony, or a high-impact, show-stopping drama. Eagerly responding to my client’s needs and wants with creative attunement, I offer him/her my invested energies, my tested design talent wrapped in a sheer love for furniture and art; the results: my authored interiors garnish an emotional response from anybody, surround you with joy of beauty and balance.
I have 25 years of sales, sales management and store management experience. I love working with others and have many previous customers who have been loyal to me through the years. I now focus my energy on helping all of my sales and design staff to ensure that they have all of the tools they need to perform their job. I also love buying for the store and getting those special home furnishing pieces that make us different from all of the other furniture stores. You will find me on any given day talking with our customers finding out more about them and getting feedback from them about our store. I have a passion for superior customer service and our customers are very important to me.
For the past 14 years, I have spent my career abroad designing residential and commercial projects. Being an architect has sharpened my eye to analyze the space in the most efficient way possible, loving to work with my diverse customers, listening to their needs, that is my main goal. My passion for travel
both international and domestically assisted me to formulate and create the best vision that my customers have envisioned for their projects. “There is no right or wrong as long as the balance is there and you are happy with it,” that’s my main rule when designing any project.
Knowing how difficult, personal and exhausting the selection process will be, it is important to show my
customers how exciting and fulfilling could be as well! Being included in the process is always a privilege
for me and will be forever grateful for.

Growing up in a small town, most people spent a lot of time taking in the scenic nature that West Tennessee had to offer, and less time concerned with the design of their home. Most homes didn’t take a second thought at drapery or furniture, but this was not the case with our family. We rearranged our layout every six months! We were constantly picking paints, looking at new sofas, and cultivating our landscaping just so. I never realized that this hobby of my mothers would instill a lifelong love for creating eye-catching spaces in me! After graduating college with a BA in History and Political Science, I wanted a short break before starting law school, and instead took a job at a local furniture store. I was instantly hooked!
Furniture and design have been a part of my life ever since. Over the past 9 years, I have found passion in working with customers to achieve their ideal project whether large or small, curating spaces that are both functional and stunning. I feel most happy when I am knee deep in samples and swatches, perfecting each piece! My personal style has come a long way since West Tennessee. My home is a mix of modern and contemporary staples with just a dash of unexpected vintage charm – and I certainly cannot forget the rugs! I even keep a stack of extras in the basement for when the mood strikes to make changes.
When I’m not focused on a design project, I fill my time with reading a good book, completing home projects with my partner, playing with my dogs, Rosie and Scooter, or delving into the latest true crime podcast.
To me, good design realizes the potential of a space. It involves considered choices teamed with a sense of bravery. As a foster mom with a small farm (and large dogs), who likes to entertain, I understand the need for furniture that is both inviting and functional. I have a strong understanding of how interiors come together to create a cohesive look that is balanced and conveys an emotion or feeling. I pick items for the store that could tell a story, a sense of place or time, an emotion, in our customers’ homes.
I enjoy working with our designers so they can source exactly what the customer wants. Modern design encompasses several points including financial, social and environmental views and I work with our designers and clients together to make sure all of these are addressed. With a BS Degree in Business Management and 18 years experience working in small business administration and sales, I excel at finding answers and creating a smooth and competent process for our customers. I look forward to helping you create new stories in your home.
Since my graduation from Appalachian State University’s Interior Design Program, I have had a passion for creativity and sustainability.
I strive to create designs for my clients that are not only cohesive and beautiful but also provide the highest functionality to meet your needs. I can create spaces that are eco-conscious, child and pet friendly, or support aging in place.
I would love to help bring your visions to life and fill your home with the modern furniture Ambiente has to offer. I look forward to working with you!
I started selling mostly Danish Modern furniture back in the 90s. It really gave me an appreciation for furniture made with a focus on value & function, not status. There’s a solace to having confidence in the quality of what you’re selling, so you can truly focus on the best design solution for your client.
For over 25 years, I have worn many hats in this industry. Sales, Management, Showroom Design, Merchandising, Buying, & Web Design. One thing I’ve learned is that design stems from one’s persona. It’s not my job to tell a client what they think is comfortable, or what pleases them aesthetically, it’s to provide them with options based on what they think & perhaps offer a perspective they may have not considered. The client literally has to live with their decisions, so what they think matters most. My purpose is to guide them through the process, not lead. Allow me to guide you to a more beautiful & functional living space.
