CHICAGO (PRWEB) June 07, 2019
ASID award-winning designer Michelle Rohrer-Lauer has completed an intensive course in sustainability and is now a certified GREENleader and member of the Sustainable Furnishings Council. SFC is a North Carolina-based coalition of manufacturers, retailers and designers dedicated to raising awareness and expanding the adoption of environmentally sustainable practices across the home furnishings industry. The course is approved by ranking staff of the Rainforest Alliance, World Wildlife Fund and USGBC/LEED (U.S. Green Building Council/Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design).
Michelle has long believed that luxury and sustainability can be combined to create outstanding interior design. Articulate and passionate about the environment, Michelle is available for interviews about the imperative for sustainability, observations about consumers’ growing interest in this issue and her personal take on the growing number of fabulous sustainable furnishings she is discovering from wide-ranging sources, including High Point Market in North Carolina. One of Michelle’s newest and most luxurious projects – a 9,000-square-foot new home in the Dallas area – features extensive use of sustainable and reclaimed materials.
Michelle has dedicated her three-decades-long career to creating extraordinary lifestyles through luxury home design, becoming a well-respected Chicago area professional. She won First Place Kitchen in the 2018 ASID-Illinois Design Awards of Excellence and a Best Powder Room award in the 2018 Kitchen and Bath Design Awards, sponsored by Kitchen and Bath Design News magazine. She is co-author of the just-released book, “Today’s Inspired Leader” and her Dallas-area project will be featured in the fall issue of Dallas Style & Design.
A graduate of the design program at Gateway Technical College, Wisconsin, Michelle’s aesthetic is inspired by the architecture and history she discovers during her travels here and abroad, as well as her own innate sense of style, color, texture and function. She brings a depth of knowledge to each project that encompasses the arts and design-specific math skills, a rare combination in her field.
During the past 30 years Michelle has created uniquely personal homes for hundreds of Fortune 500 executives, CEOs, entrepreneurs and others in the Chicago area and throughout the United States. Her clients and colleagues respect her energy, creativity, attention to detail and talent for making each home fit the lifestyle and personalities of the people who live there.
