The Chaise Lounge is proud to present Phyllis Harbinger on a monthly basis starting in 2016. Phyllis Harbinger is NCIDQ certified, and a professional member of the American Society of Interior Designers, and has just finished her term as president of the NY Metro Chapter. She is currently serving on the National level as Chair-Elect of the Chapter Support Team and is also a tenured Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York City. She is also a speaker and has presented across the country to architectural and design firms, design business conferences and associations. The amount of knowledge and creativity she has is mind blowing. Phyllis is also a Certified Feng Shui Practitioner, which enables her to integrate Eastern methods and theories of design and balance into her practice.
Since 1993 Phyllis, ASID, CID has been running Design Concepts/Interiors, LLC, her own design firm, servicing both commercial and residential clients worldwide. She is as comfortable working on a suburban residence as she is on a sleek, modern city apartment dwelling, condo lobby or jewelry boutique. In fact, the combination of commercial and residential projects, along with the variety of locales and clients’ styles, creates a spark that fuels her creativity and passion.
Currently, the Award-winning firm has launched an exciting new book The Interior Design Productivity Toolbox, published by Wiley, which will streamline the processes and systems for Interior Designers, Students and the Design/Build community. As a direct result of the success of the book, Phyllis and her team launched Harbinger Design Consulting, to further her work with Designers and the Design/Build Community, consulting with entrepreneurs and providing a unique set of tools with which they can grow and manage their firms.
