Lauren founded Studio Sven in 2014 with a belief that a truly beautiful design is one that solves problems. If it doesn’t work in the context of your life, it doesn’t belong in your home. Lauren is comfortable treading the fine line between following “the rules” and breaking them. Her vibrant and sophisticated designs easily mix contemporary elements with vintage finds and killer art.
Her working style is informed by her studies in furniture design and human-centered design, as well as her experience in project management for two of the country’s leading multi-family interior design firms and their deadline- and budget-driven projects. Before founding Studio Sven, Lauren led a creative team as Design Director at one of Chicago’s top high-end residential firms.
Studio Sven considers a wide range of projects and budgets, from residential to boutique hospitality. We collaborate with architects, contractors, artisans, and craftspeople, and are well-versed in every aspect of project management, from conception to turnkey installation.
