"I'm a smart-mouthed, problem-solving,
instant gratification junkie!"

A seasoned (former) event planner for luxury clients around the world, Ariane has loved coming up with unexpected ways to use spaces for as long as she can remember. Born in Paris and raised in Connecticut, she rearranges furniture in hotel rooms and is admittedly obsessed with lighting and dimmers. With family spread across the globe from Texas to Singapore, she has seen many homes and lifestyles in the places she's visited, always paying close attention to details.

 

After graduating from Colby College, her first job landed her in the NY showroom of F. Schumacher & Co. where she caught the official design bug. She later worked in Virginia for an interior designer who gave her additional insight into how to make spaces beautiful while maximizing the layout for easy interaction between guests. Her favorite part of the design process is that initial glimpse of a room or rendering that gets her wheels spinning and she feels a fresh burst of excitement as her clients begin to envision their own dreams coming to life. She can envision exactly how a client's rooms will look with all the elements together and selects them to work cohesively while meeting the functional, aesthetic and budgetary parameters of each project. Often times the element a client is most worried about becomes the one they end up loving the most. She works closely with her clients to uncover their unique style and then oversees the design of their project to ensure every detail reflects their clients perfectly. 

 

As a mother and wife, Ariane's home is where she is most at ease and where she recharges her creative batteries (preferably in PJs by the fire). Her very favorite thing is to create this same experience for her clients. She currently lives in Stamford, Connecticut with her husband, their two children & three dogs.

Sanny joined LFG in 2022, bringing her former experience in interior design and marketing with her. Sanny originally joined LFG as a designer but has recently transitioned to her new role managing the daily operations of the firm, developing processes and increasing efficiency across a very busy studio. She is the yin to Ariane's yang, adept at building structure to support Ariane's creative visions.

Teresa joined LFG in 2022 and works behind the scenes to place orders, update order statuses and delivery dates, manage delivery and installation schedules, and ensure that everything arrives as planned. She also coordinates replacements or repairs for any deficiencies. When needed, she is always ready to run to a showroom or vendor to grab that special item we need to see "right now" - something that happens very often.

Brooke was introduced to LFG by a client and joined the team in 2022 and works closely with Ariane on all projects. She spends lots of time visiting showrooms, using her keen eye to source items, and pitching in wherever she is needed. With a welcome ability to roll with it, she will gladly pop into a workroom or job site with little warning from the goose.
