Today’s episode of the Chaise Lounge is the last of the season, and it is graced by Chris Roughan. Roughan is principal of Roughan Interiors, a high-end residential and commercial firm with offices in New York City and Greenwich, Connecticut. In today’s conversation with Nick, Roughan talks about how her company is growing more into digital marketing, how a firm can land projects all over the place and the importance of believing in your own capabilities.
Today on the Chaise Lounge, Nick talks with two guests, the co-founders of Pillar and Peacock Adrianne Bugg and Brandeis Short.
Adrianne Bugg spent five years in finance before eventually joining up with Brandeis to start the firm. When she told her mother about it, it turns out she had saved her past sketch books for the day her daughter figured out the direction she needed.
Bugg’s direction dovetailed with Short’s. Brandeis Short majored in fine art and dance and needed to find a practical channel for those early career choices.
So in 2011, they founded Pillar and Peacock together. Today, Pillar and Peacock is a small and thriving residential and commercial design and architecture firm.
