Interior Kitchen Designer

Elizabeth Mackinder - Interior Design

Elizabeth started her early career in  NYC, New York working as a graphic designer for the cosmetic and fashion industry for many years. She proceeded to redirect her attention to the Interior design world in Long Island, NY. While living in the East she received a wealth of knowledge working in high-end furnishing companies. In time, it was a natural sequence to become more involved in cabinetry, production, and design while working on large design projects. Later in her career, she had the privilege to work at custom cabinetry companies. She valued spending time working directly with talented craftsmen internally in the wood shop, and experiencing the excitement of learning about the beauty of wood, what it can and can’t do, and understanding industry standards that are crucial for form and function. In addition to receiving hands-on experience, and inevitably having the freedom to implement and produce creative and innovative unique cabinetry designs for her clients.
