Laura O’Meara has always been passionate about interior design. Even as a young teen she had a creative spirit and heart of a designer. Today, she uses those talents- and more than 30 years of design experience- to help Sheffield Furniture clients create memorable spaces. Her work has been featured in several magazines and newspapers.
Laura’s unique background includes owning her own design firm, working for Ethan Allen and designing model homes. She studied design at the University of Kansas and Penn State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree. A personal approach and caring nature are Laura’s trademarks and it’s not uncommon for her to become personal friends with her clients while working with them.
“I want my clients to feel relaxed and enjoy the process. I cannot do my job without caring about my client and the outcome and I think that makes me a better designer.”
Philosophy of Design:
"I base my philosophy on interpreting each client’s taste and helping them create beautiful environments that they can enjoy. Each client provides a uniquely rewarding challenge. I love to see that ‘A-Ha’ moment on their faces and then know I’ve done it right!"
"My style has evolved over the years. I love a sophisticated style that makes a home feel well appointed, yet comfortable. Good design is timeless, functional and pleasing the eye – regardless of the style."
