Since 2009 Interior Chicago has been serving clients with interior design and professional organizing. 

 

We work with residential and commercial clients to transform their spaces into spectacular, livable places. Our approach is hands-on, even with our new E-Design services, and we pride ourselves in functional, livable spaces.

We were recently a featured up and coming design firm by Homeclick.

 

Our Team

Kate Marengo

Kate Marengo
Founder, President and Designer

Kate founded Arranging Order (Interior Chicago's predecessor) in 2009. in 2015 Interior Chicago was rebranded as we shift focus from organizing to orderly design.

 She received her Masters of Arts Management from Columbia College Chicago in 2007, with an emphasis on visual arts.

Inspired by unique spaces that reflect one's personality, she feels most rewarded by helping her clients feel great about their space.  She also has a keen love affair with work by Frank Lloyd Wright and Louis Sullivan.

Kate lives in Chicago with her husband, daughter, dog, and two kitties.

Joanna Quealy
Project Manager & Designer

Joanna Quealy received her Bachelor's of Arts in Marketing Communications with a concentration in Public Relations from Columbia College Chicago.  

Her background includes program management in education and in the arts. These roles allowed her to share her love of learning, creating and collaborating. 

As a (mostly) stay at home mom for the past few years Joanna found herself organizing, reorganizing & rearranging to make space for her 2 growing sons. Not surprisingly, she loved this and is happy to help Interior Chicago clients create functional, inspired spaces.  

Joanna lives on the Southside of Chicago with her husband, 2 boys and 2 fish.
