Michelle has been designing interiors for over 20 years. She is a registered interior designer, and continues to design interiors and manage a staff of thoughtful, creative design professionals. After earning her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Interior Design in 1992, her career started in residential design. In 1996, Michelle began working for Pigott, Inc. (Davenport, Iowa), a commercial furniture dealership. While there, she learned the process of selecting and specifying commercial furniture. In 2000, she went to work for Shive-Hattery Architects & Engineers (Moline, Illinois) and gained experience in designing a wide variety of interiors and was able to gain valuable insight into the design process from project conception to construction completion. In 2004, Michelle took her many years of experience and founded Conceptual Designs, Inc.
Liz joined Conceptual Designs in 2013 shortly after earning her interior design degree. Her eye for style, creative mind and willingness to assist with every aspect of the design process has made her an invaluable member of the CDI team.
Angie joined the Conceptual Designs Team at the beginning of 2013 as an added resource in our efforts to provide our clients a total design solution. She has been a knowledgeable and skilled addition to the firm.
Lyla Mae visits CDI regularly to quality check our designers’ work for the “cool” factor. Her role also includes boosting our spirits with her playful energy and the occasional case of the “zoomies.” Lyla keeps us focused on the most important tasks which include constant demands for belly rubs.
