About Kristy Furnish

Kristy is originally from Tulsa, Oklahoma and received her B.S. from Oral Roberts University. After moving to Virginia in 1992, she decided to pursue her original passion for Interior Design and return to school. She received her Interior Design Degree from Tidewater Community College in 1999. She has worked since then in the Furniture and Design industry in both commercial and residential design. Having a love for antiques from an early age, Kristy is knowledgeable of various periods and styles of furniture, with a passion for Historical Preservation. She's worked on several projects in the Hampton Roads area as well as being awarded a grant for Historical Preservation from ASID in 2000. What she enjoys most is combining the old with the new, and creating a functional and aesthetically pleasing environment for each individual. Knowing it's important to listen to the client's needs, she works well in understanding what direction to lead them, whether it's one piece to complete their space, or to help them create an entire beautiful and happy home. A great quote that relates to her design philosophy: "Great design is a multi-layered relationship between human life and its environment." Naoto Fukasawa
