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.

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.
