Laurie HaefeleMeet this month's Spotlight Designer, Laurie Haefele. With a B.A. in Architecture from the Pratt Institute and a Master’s Degree in Architectural History and Theory from UCLA, this well-educated designer has an impressive repertoire of clients. Known as the ultimate kitchen, wardrobe, and bath specialist, Haefele’s work has been featured in more the 35 magazine publications and several HGTV shows. After working in New York on projects like the Guggenheim expansion and well-known residences throughout the city, Laurie moved to Southern California in 2002, where she opened Haefele Design in Santa Monica. Gaining most of her client base purely from referral, it comes as no surprise to her devoted supporters that Haefele holds numerous design awards. In 2007, Robb Report Luxury Home Magazine recognized Haefele as one of the world’s top designers. She is also an associate member of AIA, ASID, and NKBA, a recipient of Caesarstone’s “Dream Design Award,” and the SubZero/Wolf regional "Best of the Best" winner. Despite her growing prominence within the design industry Haefele never loses sight of what is truly important, noting, “I believe in delivering what my clients want, and working until they are happy with the results.”
