Lorain Design Associates

Since 2002


The Lorain Design Associates team enjoys creating aesthetically pleasing, coordinated yet imaginative spaces for both businesses and homes. Their design talents have been applied in a wide variety of projects from medical and dental offices, senior housing communities and apartment complexes to modest family homes and spacious, private estates. Their design work from the Sacramento Junior League Showcase house was featured in the full-color book Designer Showcase - Interior Design at It’s Best by Schiffer Publishing.


Our team is committed to creating spaces that are not only exceptionally designed but also function efficiently and reflect a design style that is as individual as each client.
