Mark Roberts joined his father in business in 1997, after earning a bachelor of fine arts in interior design from Iowa State University. He completed an internship with Allen Interior Furnishings in St. Louis, Mo., in 1996. Mark was recently named one of Traditional Home Magazine's 20 Young Designers To Watch.

“The best designers are constantly involved in the field,” said Mark. “We like to develop a warm rapport with our clients. We have fine friendships with many of our clients that are a result of a long-term relationship that goes beyond design. We get to know our customers as individuals and families first; from there we can most effectively serve their needs.

“We are both always studying design books and periodicals, and are looking for new ideas. We want to bring fresh ideas to our clients. Passion for design doesn’t stop at 5 p.m.”
