Coast to Coast Design Co-Host Lisa Davenport | S27E8

Many memories are made with our grandparents that we carry into adulthood. They teach us important lessons and make us laugh. Joining Nick May on The Chaise Lounge this week is Lisa Davenport of LDD Interiors.

Lisa co-hosts the Coast to Coast Design podcast with fellow friend and designer Garrison Hullinger. Nick’s friendship with both Lisa and Garrison came from the power of podcasting and being in the interior design world.

LDD Interiors incorporates the client’s personality and history into their designs. With offices in Connecticut and Naples, Florida, Lisa is helping Nick’s own parents move down to Florida and design their new space. Now that’s a strong friendship!

If we can’t laugh at some of our mistakes, we should learn from our mistakes. But if we can’t laugh at some of them, get out of the business. Get out. Life is too short not to laugh at some of this stuff.

In business for 40 years, Glenn and George have grown their business to offices in New York and Toronto. Their work has consisted of retail stores and restaurants, hotels and large residential complexes, furniture and lighting, and fabric.

Let’s jump into the interview with George and Glenn!

What we always learned is if you have goals, keep them abstract. Don’t figure out the roadmap to get to the goal, but keep your eye on the goal. You’ll find it.

Designer Advantage and Hiring with Amy Kartheiser | S27E5

Some guests on panel episodes have the energy that we like to look for. Our next guest was on a panel in Season 26 and we decided to bring her back. Amy Kartheiser (Amy Kartheiser Design) returns to The Chaise Lounge with Nick May.

Amy got into interior design after years of working in a sales position that taught her a lot about business. She later bought her own loft and skipped out on work to go with her mom to the markets and pick out items for her place. She realized she liked designing so much that she started her own firm.

Amy also shares her passion for suicide prevention and her charity Under the Same Sky she founded inspired by her family’s personal experience with suicide. Under the Same Sky launches November 21st. 


Learn more about Amy Kartheiser Design by visiting their website www.amykartheiserdesign.com. For more information on Amy’s charity, Under the Same Sky, please visit www.utsscharity.org.

To me that’s like A number 1 when you’re running a business is customer service and that job really taught me everything - not everything I needed to know about running a design business, but taught me what the important points are in running a business. So I’m forever grateful for it.

How I Became An Interior Designer with Christine Markatos Lowe | S27E4

Our next guest started down the path of fine art and sculpting. A mentor later directed her down a path to interior design. Hailing from the east coast, Christine Markatos Lowe (Christine Markatos Design) joins Nick May on The Chaise Lounge today.  

Having earned an MSA in sculpture, Christine’s professor suggested she become an interior designer. She worked for prominent architecture firms and learned the business before she started her own firm in 2005. Based in Los Angeles, Christine Markatos Design specializes in custom residential design with a modern, yet classical influence.

So I feel like everybody is in the same place and in some ways, I haven’t thought about this before, but maybe it’s almost more equalizing because if you’re working and you’re at home you’re no different than somebody who’s not working and at home. Suddenly everybody is on this same playing field.
