LAUREN SVENSTRUP

Lauren’s passion for design led her to studying both furniture and product design, before finding her niche in interior design. Honing her project management skills on deadline and budget-driven projects while working for two of the country’s leading multi-family interior design firms left her craving something different. Lauren switched her focus to residential design, proudly leading a creative team as Design Director of one of Chicago’s top high-end residential firms.

Lauren founded Studio Sven in 2014 with the firm belief that a home should have a personality and a sense of humor, that there should be an element of whimsy and intrigue. Yearning for the unexpected, she teeters the fine line of knowing when to follow the “rules” and when to break them. Her designs are vibrant and sophisticated, mixing contemporary elements with vintage finds and killer art. Homes are meant to be lived in, laughed in, and loved in ... so love yours.
