Hospitality Designer Deborah Lloyd Forrest Talks Luxury & Travel with Guest Host Stacy Garcia | S25E10

This week we have another episode from the “before” time, as well as an installment in our Guest Series. Nick May invited Stacy Garcia of Stacy Garcia Inc. onto The Chaise Lounge to bring her unique, creative voice and interview a guest of her own. Stacy’s guest is none other than Deborah Lloyd Forrest, President and Founder of ForrestPerkins (a distinguished design studio of global architecture firm Perkins Eastman) and longtime hospitality designer.

Stacy and Deborah’s conversation covers a variety of topics, ranging from: how to define luxury, the importance of originality, and getting involved in the design process as early as possible. They also stress the importance of giving back to the design community, mentoring and getting involved with education and investing in the next generation of design professionals whenever possible.

We couldn’t agree more.

"I would rather lose a project by telling somebody what is actually possible than get a project and have everybody disappointed - because it can't be accomplished in the time or for the money that the owner thought [they] wanted to spend."
