ESTERO, FL – Interior Designer Lisa Kahn-Allen has been named Miromar Design Center’s June 2012 Designer of Distinction. Lisa has been in the interior design business for nearly 20 years. She is the principal designer of Naples based Kahn Design Group and a member of the American Society of Interior Design. Her award winning interior designs grace high-end residences from Naples to Big Sky, Montana.
“I love the convenience of Miromar Design Center. It is located close to my Naples studio,” Kahn-Allen said. “I use the design center because I love the incredible selection of products and fabrics. I have everything I need when I am shopping for a new project all in one location. It is a terrific design resource.”
Kahn Allen’s family owned an interior design business as she was growing up so it was a natural fit for her to pursue a degree in Interior Design and Housing from Miami University. She began her own career as a corporate interior designer in the northeast, then moved to Boca Raton, Florida and transitioned into residential interior design. In 1998 she settled in Naples and after winning local, regional and national awards for her first project, she founded Kahn Design Group in 2000. Currently she is designing a line of furniture, art and accessories for Chelsea House set to debut this fall at the High Point Market in North Carolina. She says she brings a bit of each project she has created to the line, “The best part of being an interior designer is that you get to fully explore every style. Every project I do leaves an imprint on my own taste and style. Our end goal is to create beautiful spaces that reflect our clients’ lives and personalities.”
Each month Miromar Design Center recognizes the talents, loyalty and support of interior design professionals based upon nominations from the design center’s 45 store managers. Designers are honored in this year-round appreciation program for their professionalism, creativity and commitment. “Lisa Kahn distinguishes herself as a designer by her encouragement and commitment to sales associates, her peers and other showroom managers,” said Michael Mather, owner of Fine Lines Experience Center at Miromar Design Center. “Her quick smile and positive outlook make it easy to see why she is a true Designer of Distinction.”
