Liz Caan, Founder & Principal
Since 2005, Liz Caan’s signature play of pattern, color and texture has elevated some of Boston’s most distinctive and historic homes with renewed vitality and charm. She is personally involved in every project, and works closely with her growing team to cultivate talent within the firm. Liz is a member of the Design Leadership Network, the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art, and the Leaders of Design Council. She holds a degree in Fine Art; prior to starting the firm, Liz worked in sales and marketing in New York and Chicago. She lives in Chestnut Hill with her husband, 3 children and 2 dogs.
Cooper Herrlinger, Senior Project Manager
Cooper joined our team in 2017 after spending many years collaborating with several noted Boston design firms, including Bierly-Drake and Eugene Lawrence & Co . A mid-western boy with an East Coast flare, Cooper holds a degree in Interior Design from the University of Cincinnati. Cooper loves the world of design and when he’s not conceptualizing gorgeous interiors, he can be found endlessly searching for Boston’s finest martini or spending time with family and friends relaxing on the Cape.
Kari Klingsporn, Project Manager
Kari has an all hands on deck approach. With a background in both commercial and residential design, she brings a plethora of skills and perspective to the table. After eight years on the West Coast, earning a degree in Interior Design from the Art Institute of Portland, she is excited to settle in near her family as an official New Englander. Whether she is drafting floor plans or hunting down fabrics for a project, she has a smile on her face!
Grace Galloway, Design Assistant
Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, Grace has always been a design and color enthusiast. After receiving a BFA in Graphic Design from Boston University, Grace honed her client services and project management skills while working at an advertising agency. She then pivoted to a career in interiors after completing a Certificate in Interior Design from the Boston Architectural College. Grace was particularly drawn to the world of design because of the mix of right brain and left brain thinking that goes into each project. Grace’s main source of inspiration is nature (she is happiest when spending time outdoors in Vermont), she finds joy in mixing patterns and discovering unusual color combinations, and she dabbles in painting and printmaking in her free time.
Shelby Vickowski, Procurement Manager & Admin. Assistant
Shelby is the newest Liz Caan & Co. team member, joining us in August of 2019. Shelby brings with her a wealth of knowledge, particularly related to fabric and textiles. She previously worked in fabric sales, which is extremely helpful as she manages procurement and order tracking at LC&Co. She received her degree in Fashion Design, which makes it no surprise that Shelby is one of the best dressed in the office! Shelby prides herself on being organized and self motivated, with a keen eye for detail.
Debbie McNamara, Office Manager
A master multitasker, Debbie manages all the mission critical aspects of the office, from billing to HR to keeping the office (and more importantly the snack bar) fully stocked. Debbie wears many hats around the studio, but always greets everyone with a smile.
