Lucy Allen joined Carolyn Rebuffel Designs as a Design Assistant in 2016. With an extensive background in space planning and AutoCAD drafting, Lucy’s aim is to design conceptually-connected spaces. “Rooms that are integrated function better,” says Lucy. “My job is to figure that how we can do that for each client.”

Based in Chicago, Lucy began her interior design studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In 2010 she graduated with a BFA in Interior Architecture from Columbia College in Chicago. After college she served as Visual Merchandiser at Crate & Barrel, as well as a sales associate for The Robert Allen Duralee Group as well as Stark Carpets, both trade-only showrooms.

In her spare time, Lucy scours thrift shops for small furniture pieces to reupholster.
