We’re excited to welcome Megan Landis to taste as an Interior Designer/Project Manager. Megan comes to us with a rich background leading interior projects in educational and consumer product fields. She went to school at Roger Williams University for Architecture and then Pratt Institute in New York for Interior Design. Her most recent position as Designer & Project Manager at DBVW Architects in Providence had her busy on projects at RISD, Moses Brown and URI. Prior to moving to Providence, she worked in NYC with Gensler as a design practice leader on client projects ranging from L’Oréal to Deutsche Bank.
“Design is about balance and point of view; it tells a story. There is balance to be achieved in big and small, dark and light, color and neutrality, personality and reservation. I enjoy working with clients to discover who they are and what they want their space to say about themselves, their family and their life.”
Megan’s gift of creativity and consensus building was honed working at Gensler with challenging clients such as L’Oréal and Estee Lauder – both synonymous with high expectations for brand representation through impeccable design. Those client assignments were further challenged by large committees when one client may actually be represented by twenty people. Listening and combining the personal tastes of many into a cohesive, functional and interesting design solution made Megan instrumental in those client relationships.
At taste, we’re already finding Megan has a quiet strength in her ability to step back and consider the larger vision as well as the small details that work as building blocks to achieve a design. She brings ideas, large and small, that speak to clients’ goals and provide assurance that we’re attending to their needs. (During the past three weeks I’ve witnessed the relaxed, warm smiles that fill clients’ faces when Megan shares a thoughtful suggestion that fulfills a wish they may have only mentioned in passing. Megan’s attention to those small details that bring joy is why she’s a perfect addition to taste.)
Megan and her husband are recent transplants to Rhode Island from Vermont by way of NYC for ten years. At the end of their time in New York they made the fateful decision to move to ‘vacation’ and start a family. Two years later they are still enjoying explorations in the ocean state, taking their dog Leo and son Lukas for hikes, hunting out antiques and big waves alike and taking the occasional quick trip to the Green mountains to visit family.
Only the best,
