As the founder and creative director of Lisa Mende Design, Lisa has built a reputation as one of the South’s premier luxury designers. She is known for creating bold, modern interiors that are rooted in tradition. Antiques and vintage pieces, mixed with modern classics and original art are the hallmarks of her designs. Her portfolio includes an impressive array of projects from coast to coast and includes everything from historic preservation to new construction.
Always interested in the latest runway fashions, Lisa’s first degree was in fashion design. She worked in the fashion industry for several years before returning to school to pursue a degree in interior design. After design school, Lisa began a career in interior design full-time, working for a residential kitchen and bath firm. In 1998, she decided to expand her horizons and share her love of “livable luxury” by opening her firm, Lisa Mende Design.
Lisa’s love of fashion and decor is evident in how she creates rooms infused color, pattern, and texture. Her passion for design, coupled with her love of fashion, is evident in every room she creates. Form follows function, but never at the expense of quality, comfort, and style.
