If you blinked, you missed it. The year 2022 seemed to pass by in a flash, and it feels like we went straight from summer into year-end reflection. We’re getting a little misty-eyed contemplating everything the last 12 months have brought to us. This was one of Centered by Design’s biggest years yet, with a new look, studio, projects, clients and offerings keeping us on our toes and giving us something to wake up and get excited about every single day. There have been many ups and downs along the way, but we couldn’t be more thankful for them all. A look back at some of our favorite moments of the year:
Grand Opening Party at Our New Studio
The icing on the cake for Centered by Design’s major rebranding mid-year was getting to reveal our new look and celebrate with our families, friends and clients at our new studio in Lincoln Park. This space was the culmination of our dream to have a studio for the entire team (which has also grown!) that serves as a beautiful place to work and helps demonstrate our vintage-meets-modern style and custom cabinetry. Watch a highlight of the party here.
Kicking Off the Henry House Restoration
A second-time client is embarking on a gut renovation of a beautiful, late 18th-century/early 19th-century home, and we are thrilled to be part of the process. The limestone-façade home in Lincoln Park feels a little bit Parisian and has an uncommon layout for Chicago. (Peek into the house pre-renovation here!) We can’t wait to build upon its great bones, especially the front parlor and Juliet balcony doors, with the help of a great architect. Look for more to come on the Henry House in 2023 and see what we’ve done on the project so far here.
Feature on Destination Chicago
We were delighted to be spotlighted on CBS’ “Destination Chicago” in October. This series promotes entrepreneurs and design-related companies around the city. Our segment featured our team working on one of our favorite current projects: the Henry House restoration! Peek behind the scenes here and watch the segment here.
Launching New Services
As if a rebranding and new studio weren’t enough, Centered by Design is also expanding its services to continue to serve our clients better! We’re thrilled to announce that in the new year, we will be offering virtual design services! Our consultation packages include three 1-hour planning calls with one of our design consultants, a design recommendations report, a presentation deck with design boards and a detailed budget, a list of industry referrals and more. We’ll also be offering a special virtual design service exclusively for kitchen design. Look for more details to be updated on this page for 2023, and be sure to follow us on Instagram to keep up with all the latest happenings.
Thanks for following along with Centered by Design this year. If you’re thinking of renovating, be sure to get in touch and get on our schedule for 2023. We appreciate you and can’t wait to work with you soon. In the meantime, let us know what you’d like to see and hear from us coming up in the comments below.
