Interview with Megan Lichterman

Welcome to the team!
Thank you, I’m very excited to be working with you.

So you are a fellow UW alumni…
Yes I am, go Badgers! I have Bachelor of Science in Interior Design from the School of Human Ecology.

Do you miss Madison?
I miss State Street with all of the great shops and restaurants.

What was your favorite place to hang out?
The Ivory Room just off of the square is a fun place with a great atmosphere. I also like the Great Dane a lot.

So when I interviewed you we met at a coffee shop, and the first thing you told me is that you don’t drink coffee….I love coffee
A lot of people like coffee, it’s just not for me....

Hmmm....well, your skills and experience turned out to be more relevant than coffee drinking.
I’m glad I could overcome that!

Do you have a favorite designer? Any projects or public spaces you find especially inspiring?
I wouldn’t say that I have a favorite designer, but I really do love what Candace Olson designs in terms of lighting and her use of mirrors, but I also like Sarah Richardson and her ability to mix fabrics and patterns. Let’s just say, I’m an HGTV junkie! Who isn’t though?! It’s fabulous!

As for favorite places, I really enjoyed my trip to Taliesin in Spring Green, WI. I think that Wright’s integration of landscape and architecture is stimulating. Also, I love Milwaukee Public Art Museum designed by Calatrava. The clean, white lines are intriguing.

I’m really looking forward to introducing you to my clients and getting you involved in current there any particular aspect of this business you are most excited about?
I’m looking forward to learning more about window treatments and different furniture lines, and I’m excited to get involved in large scale design projects.
