Catherine Dolen – Principal Designer
How long have you been in the industry?
Over 20 years
How do you stay abreast of new trends and styles?
By perpetually absorbing all that is around me. I am constantly “shopping” for new ideas and inspiration from my environment, from books, from our wonderful Dallas showrooms or those in other cities, from travel, antiquing, etc.
What is your favorite part of the design process?
My favorite part of the design process is the design concept phase. After getting to know the clients and evaluating the architecture, my mind starts flowing with ideas and developing solutions to bring to the project.
Who/what inspires you the most?
Exposure to new places, new things, and new ideas always brings great inspiration.
