Meet Kady Lindback | C.A.I. Denver Sales

Kady Lindback

Tell us about your past work experience | education:
I was studying photography & culture in Florida when I received a scholarship to Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design.

It was upon moving to Colorado that I decided to change my focus to interior design. In 2010, I graduated with my BFA in Interior Design with an emphasis in Sustainable Methods.

I have since been working in and out of the design world, and it feels great to be back!

 

So you’re originally from Florida?
I grew up along the Gulf Coast of Florida, in Cape Coral. Growing up near the water is a very dear part of my childhood.

What is/was your most rewarding project and why?
The most rewarding projects are always the ones that require you to dig the deepest to find an appropriate solution. I enjoy a challenge and having my hand in a project that’s truly one-of-a-kind.

How would you characterize your design style?
My design style is very eclectic. I’m a definite mix of progressive retro and bohemian funk. I also love antiques. I like a piece that’s had 10 lives before making it into my hands; things with a story.

In your experience working at C.A.I. Designs thus far, what is/are some of your favorite product lines and why?
I’m really digging Taracea, Cisco Brothers and Palecek. Each of them have a very disctinctive look, yet can fall into a laid-back, “California Cool” cohesion. I’m a sucker for the Cali look.

What is your favorite color?
This is a real brain-buster, because my favorite color changes like the wind changes direction. I’ve recently been into this very specific and dynamic shade of pale blue, that I lovingly refer to as “cloud”.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
I like to involve myself in various creative pursuits. I love to write, and I’ve been working on a book of short stories for some time.
I also enjoy refinishing furniture, collecting albums on vinyl, gardening, supporting local music and restaurants, and traveling.

What is your favorite food?
How am I to choose just one?! Cheese is life–the stinkier the better. I am also obsessed with Alfonso mango and avocado (A.K.A., nature’s butter).

Where do you draw your inspiration from? Is there anything you do to get you inspired when you hit a slump?
I draw inspiration from myriad sources. I’ve always felt like I was from different era, so I tend to draw inspiration from classic movies and TV sitcoms, as well as current trends I see in Western Europe and Scandinavia. I love mixing elements of new and old, or putting a new spin on something that’s otherwise outdated. Laverne & Shirley and Mary Tyler Moore have always been monumental inspirations for me, in all capacities of life.

A Sneak Peek into Currey & Company

Currey & Company’s “vision” is to create and fulfill the desire for distinctive home furnishings. They are best known for their lighting products but they also design and sell interior furniture.

Currey & Company take great pride in their products and it is reflected in the beauty of the rooms that are designed with their products, as well as the care they take into producing great products and showcasing them.

Let’s take a look at a recent blog post by Currey, “Design Heightens Romance”. Such a beautiful example of how the products within a room can set the mood; from the lighting, to wall color, to an end table. An example of this is portrayed in the hit movie, “The Holiday”. Two rooms designed for two different characters experiencing different worlds. A few of the beautifully crafted pieces designed by Currey were represented within these rooms. Make sure to take a moment to read this POST.

Did you know that Currey has short videos that show details and workmanship of their products? It’s not easy to see the interior of a product in a still photo. Take a closer look at some of the videos available. Just another example of the extensive detail that goes into the design of their products.

 

And finally hear from the president of Currey & Company himself with this behind the scenes podcast provided by Million Dollar Decorating.

 

Beautiful products, created by a beautiful company… Currey & Company!
