Emily Lenavitt’s interior designs—and approach—are centered on ensuring comfort, relaxation and happiness. It’s a practice she has exercised frequently—she has extensive experience in assisting clients with designing custom-upholstered furnishings. “I fully embrace my clients’ vision for their homes, and always want them to feel confident and excited about our selections,” she says. “I aim to go out of my way to ensure my clients are pleased throughout the process.”
A Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native, Emily prides herself on her down-to-earth personality and good sense of humor. She takes the same lighthearted approach to her interiors, favoring clean lines with a hint of eclecticism. “The secret is striking the right balance of the two,” she says. An avid hiker, she says her greatest source of inspiration is the outdoors. “The color schemes and textures I find in nature seamlessly translate to create beautiful interior designs,” she says”
At Cantoni, “I love the team atmosphere and product range,” she says. “The vast number of high-quality pieces we have access to enables me to design custom spaces as equally as unique as my clients. But the most exciting aspect is seeing the beautiful end result.”
