Lead Designer, Leslie Lofgren was featured in a recent Washington Post article, discussing design solutions for “Creating a teen- and adult-friendly hangout, with cool Scandinavian style“.



Leslie Lofgren’s “ah-ha” career moment arrived as she passed the Basilica of San Giovanni on a sunny day in Rome. She was living in Italy following graduation from the University of Iowa with a degree in English literature. While she always had a passion for interior design, it never occurred to her until that moment that design could be her profession. Lofgren took an intensive language course, earned her certificate of fluency in Italian and was accepted to study design at Istituto Europeo di Design (IED.) After completing design school, she moved back to the U.S. and began her dream career.

Leslie has a deep appreciation and love for all design styles, which makes it incredibly fun and satisfying to work on the array of assignments at Zoltan Design Co. She believes each project is as unique as the client, and she strives to make sure the individual personality shows through in the finished product.
