Andy, Christy, Destin and Kelly are just a few of the designers you’ll find in the InterfaceStudio. They custom color Interface products and manipulate base constructions to develop custom products. The designers work with a variety of tools, much like in an artist in a studio (hence the name InterfaceStudio) to provide tools to assist the sales team. The Studio specializes in reintroducing the customer to products that they may have once overlooked through new digital imagery in the context of their project.
“Our products are very versatile, and sometimes it’s difficult for the customer to visualize certain products in their space. We’re often able to grab the customer’s attention by showing product (both standard and custom) in a different context – change things up a bit! For example, a product like Cap and Blazer is very relevant in the education market segment. If we lower the contrast a bit and tweak the color, it could also make a great statement in a corporate setting,” comments Destin Knowles Lemmo, Director of Custom Development for The Studio.

What are the top 5 things inspiring The Studio today?
Always color. Clothing, fashion, nature, even mixing several patterns. All of these things and more inspire our work in The Studio.
What’s a typical day like in The Studio?
We all have individual agendas with a common goal. We work in a very lively, fast paced world of organized chaos!
How do you translate a customer’s ideas into a finished, customized product?
We always look within our existing product line to find a pattern/construction that suits the inspiration. We then work with the customer to develop the appropriate custom color or pattern for a product that fits their space.
What color trends have you noticed most in your recent work?
The use of varying neutrals with bright pops of color in space design.
In the past few months, what has been the most interesting project you’ve worked on?
We worked on a project for a library where we used accents in Walk the Plank to coordinate with Urban Retreat 101. We also finished a casino inspired by multi colored circles where we manipulated a Head Over Heels pattern to incorporate 14 colors instead of the usual 3.
What are some of your favorite Interface products to customize?
Head Over Heels, Urban Retreat One, Walk the Plank and Raw
