MEET OUR TEAM

How did you join the Kibler & Kirch design family?

I feel like I was always a part of Kibler & Kirch–from the moment I walked though the doors when I was in high school.  Fate brought me the opportunity to run this amazing company many years later.  I have big shoulders to stand on and many amazing people at my side. If I said “I’m living the dream,” would it be cliché?

If you were a piece of furniture what would you be? 

A wingback chair in a proper menswear fabric.  I’d be timeless and outlast the other things in your home.

What do you own that you would never get rid of? 

A folding wooden ruler that was passed down from my great-grandfather to my grandfather–and then to me.  It’s worn smooth and inspires me to do work they’d be proud of.  It always makes me think hard about quality.

What is your favorite decor style?

I like a subtly Western experience. It has to look gathered and collected, though. There are so many beautiful furniture pieces in the world that it’s impossible to stick to one style. I find ways to put things together you wouldn’t expect.

How did you join the Kibler & Kirch design family?

Growing up, my mother loved houses.  I spent many Sunday afternoons going with her to open houses, looking at floor plans, and analyzing natural light and overall design.  I grew to love being able to take a house and turn it into a beautiful home.  I have also grown to love picking up a tool and helping a vision come to life as my DIY skills have increased. I come from a background in HR and Business Management but I wanted a job that would let me stimulate my creativity sufficiently to keep me happy and interested in my job for long term.  I knew that what I really wanted was a job that would let me use my creativity, organizational skills, and people skills all in one.  When I saw the job posting for a design coordinator at Kibler & Kirch I knew that it was the perfect fit.  I am surrounded by amazing people with incredible skill and I love that I get to be a part of creating beautiful spaces.

If you were a piece of furniture what would you be?

I would most definitely be a lamp/light.  Nothing is better than good lighting.  I love it when people let their personalities shine and I strive to do that every day.  Lamps also come in an endless variety, just like people.  You have to LOVE a good lamp or light fixture!  They are like the icing on the cake!

What do you own that you would never get rid of?

Scrapbooks! There was a time when scrapbooking was my creative outlet.  All of the way back to my high school years I kept a scrapbook to remember homecomings, proms, and general teenage shenanigans. As the years went on my husband and I grew our family to include four children.  Much of their early years are chronicled in handmade scrapbooks that I spent endless hours on.  Not only do I love looking back at them but so do my children.

What is your favorite design style?

I have to say that I am probably somewhere between eclectic and transitional.  As someone with a large family I feel that things need to function first but that beauty comes in a very close second.  I gravitate towards spaces that have great architecture, lots of light, and that are welcoming and warm.

How did you join the Kibler & Kirch design family?

I recently graduated from the Interior Design Program in Bozeman, Montana, and looked for the perfect job that would set my design career in motion when I ran across Kibler & Kirch. I researched the company and fell in love with the way they make architecturally stunning spaces feel comfortably lived in.

If you were a piece of furniture what would you be?

A coffee table. When my family gets together, we usually end up in the living room. Many wonderful conversations have happened around my parents’ coffee table. I love being surrounded by all my loved ones.

What do you own that you would never get rid of?

My great-grandfather’s sofa. My parents had it in their bedroom ever since I can remember –  and my siblings and I would sleep on it when we were sick. I just inherited it and can’t wait to have it refurbished for my house! I hope it will become a statement piece that is flexible enough to carry from house to house.

What is your favorite design style?

I love using multiple different styles. No two spaces are ever the same! I feel that you get a sense of which styles your client connects with most. Combining different styles for each client is what makes the job so interesting.

How did you join the Kibler & Kirch design family?
I had the pleasure to have studied Interior Design at the Career Center in high school. The hands on experience building a house was the catalyst to my passion. I then went on to major in Interior Design and Graphic Design at Montana State University in Bozeman. I wanted to get my foot in the door with a design firm so I introduced myself to Kibler & Kirch. It has been a great experience working with such lovely people who share my passion.
If you were a piece of furniture what would you be?

I would be a dining table. Good food and drinks is the best way to bring people together. It’s my favorite place to share laughs and stories with friends and family.

What do you own that you will never get rid of?

I will always keep my grandfather’s violin. Music was what he loved the most and his violin was given to me after he passed. Although I never met him, it felt like he was with me in a way as I played it over the years.
What is your favorite decor style?
I personally lean towards transitional but I appreciate many styles. I don’t like to focus exclusively on trends. I am inspired by timeless designs that age gracefully and can be loved for many years.

How did you join the Kibler & Kirch design family?

In the Summer of 2017, I was a walk-in customer at Kibler & Kirch’s retail store, in Red Lodge. At that time, I was unfamiliar with the area and the talented reputation of their brand. That fall, my family and I moved to Billings from Savannah, Georgia, where I had managed daily operations, personnel and marketing of our 22-year-old family retail and design business. After taking a three year break from running a business, I had finally reached a point of feeling settled into Montana living and found myself looking for creative fulfillment, outside of our home, and a strong desire to work again. And sure enough, I saw that the Kibler & Kirch Design Team was looking for a new addition. I was very interested and reached out immediately. I feel so fortunate to be apart of this vibrant team.

If you were a piece of furniture what would you be?

I would be a stunning burled walnut chest. Hand crafted of course! Very strong but elegant with touches of rich inlay. I would hope to provide useful storage for beautiful pieces such as sterling silver and fine linens that have been past down from previous generations.

What is your favorite decor style?

I would have to say, Eclectic. I was raised in one of the most beautiful artistic cities in our country by a very strong but passionate women with amazing taste. I learned about the importance of restoration and change. I truly believe that if you collect pieces you love, they can be designed in a way that works.

OUR LOGO

A couple of weeks after opening our doors in 1990, we asked a traveling artist to help make a logo. We had struggled to capture the essence of our business, but she sketched in a matter of minutes what others had missed in dozens of attempts. It seemed perfect and it stuck. We still love its hand-drawn quality. Here’s a brief explanation of what it means:

  • Circles & Triangles: symbolize continuity, wholeness, and perfect symmetry.
  • Ivy: celebrates nature and the store’s roots as a flower shop under co-founder Erica Hash.
  • Transformation: swans are indigenous to our part of the country and remind us of a the ugly duckling story. We help people realize the beauty in what they have and create new beauty in their lives.
  • Trinity: our work is a spiritual journey and mission, but this also represents the three things we try to bring to everything we do: beauty, timelessness, and quality.
