“Design is a fundamental part of how we express ourselves in the world and as designers our goal is to achieve the best possible expression for each project,” says Kiefer.  “Miromar Design Center, with its creative, beautiful atmosphere, inspires instant confidence for our clients. The gorgeous showrooms provide an abundance of resources for any type of project start to finish.  Adding to that are the showroom personnel at Miromar Design Center who are knowledgeable, caring, professionals who can be counted on to give you their best.”

Prior to founding her design business, Kiefer was a Senior Interior Designer for a major national architectural firm, owned an antique shop and served as a docent for an art museum.  She has a unique insight into the aesthetic art of design.  She believes good design is the balance between time well spent and talent well applied.  Kiefer says the difference between a great outcome for a client and an ordinary one is the meshing of a thousand details that either fit or don’t, and passionate    spirit  that works to tie them all together.

Each month Miromar Design Center recognizes the talents, loyalty and support of interior design professionals based upon nominations from the center’s 45 store managers.  Designers are honored in this year-round appreciation program for their professionalism, creativity and commitment. “I nominated Joan Kiefer to be a Designer of Distinction because she is very professional, thorough, and very detail oriented.  She is the perfect client, and she serves her own clients with the utmost care and talent.  That makes her a pleasure to work with,” said Angela Lossia of Angela Fine Furnishings.
