How did you join the Kibler & Kirch design family?

I feel like I was always 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 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. I might get reupholstered every 20 years or so…

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 in places 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, and it has to have great art. There are so many beautiful pieces of furniture and art 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 play a part in creating beautiful spaces.

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

I would most definitely be a lamp or a light fixture. 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.

 

 

Aubrey Soares, Interior Designer

How did you join the Kibler & Kirch design family?

When I graduated from the Interior Design Program in Bozeman, Montana, and looked for the perfect job that would set my design career in motion, I discovered 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 my job so interesting.

How did you join the Kibler & Kirch design family?

When I graduated from the Interior Design Program in Bozeman I was excited to move back to my hometown of Billings, MT. I was connected to Kibler & Kirch through a professor and reached out immediately. After meeting Jeremiah, I knew I wanted to become a part of this team to grow my passion for design.

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

I would be a built in bookcase, becoming a part of the home’s architecture. I love libraries with all the stories and history they hold. A great collection of books is essential in my home.

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

I could never let go of a family ring that has been passed down to me. My great grandfather gave four family rings to his grandchildren featuring gold bands and yogo sapphires. The ring I have was passed down to me on my sixteenth birthday and I hardly ever take it off. It is an essential part of my wardrobe.

What is your favorite design style?

Tudor homes with exposed timber and brick work are my absolute favorite. I love features that nod at medieval styles transporting me to another place in time. The more exposed wood, the better!

 

 

Erin Doherty, Retail Coordinator

How did you join the Kibler & Kirch design family?

After visiting the first pop-up shop, The Flowerie, I followed Kibler & Kirch on social media and became a fan of their interior design work. When they were looking for help with their next pop-up, I knew I wanted to be a part of it. I’ve been loving being part of the team ever since.

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

I would be a curio cabinet of collected objects. I love traveling and bringing home pieces of art, sculpture, books, and small souvenirs as well as displaying meaningful items from my friends
and family.

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

I will always keep my mother’s first Canon 35mm film camera. She would develop her work with her own darkroom setup when she was younger. That inspires me to be creative and love the
process.

What’s your favorite decor style?

I tend to gravitate towards anything with clean lines, beautiful lighting, and a variety of textures. In our home, we have a very eclectic aesthetic and love juxtaposing family heirloom pieces with
contemporary art.

 

 

Erica Lanter, Design Assistant

erica@kiblerandkirch.com

How did you join the Kibler & Kirch design family?

I have always wanted to be in the design industry. When I had the opportunity to join the Kibler & Kirch team, it felt like a wish came true. My background in Communications and the Arts comes together to inspire me here everyday. As I work alongside our incredible team, creating one of a kind spaces for our clients, I can’t help but say, “Pinch me if I’m dreaming!”

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

A dining table. Solid wood, slightly distressed, and at least 10 feet long! Many of my favorite moments happen around the dining table. I would host coffee in the morning, homework sessions in the afternoon, wine with dinner, and holiday gatherings year after year.

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

A green metal trunk my great grandfather brought with him from Norway when he migrated to America. It still has the original shipping stickers and his signature on the side.

What is your favorite decor style?

I gravitate toward traditional and transitional styles. I think I live my life that way as well, keeping traditions yet always transitioning with my busy family. I am drawn to design spaces that play with masculine and feminine elements and incorporate timeless details with the comforts of everyday life.

 

 

Hannah Nelson, Design and Web Assistant

How did you join the Kibler & Kirch design family?

After I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Architecture I had the pleasure of being a Disney Imagineer in Florida, working on Disney park and hotel projects. I loved my time there, but when I married my husband, a pilot, it was time to go where the job took him–to beautiful Montana. I quickly found that the most prestigious and well known design firm there was Kibler & Kirch and I absolutely had to become a part of the team.

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

A unique accent chair. I have always loved how a smaller piece of furniture such as an accent chair can change a space. Reupholster it, replace it, move it to a new area of the room. There are so many possibilities to change up a space with just one piece.

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

While I do think of myself as a minimalist, I would say that I could never bring myself to be rid of my three rings I wear daily. The first being my engagement ring that my husband designed for me and hand-picked the stone. Second, my mother’s wedding band with my father’s, brother’s, and now my first daughter’s birthstone in it, Sapphire. And, lastly, my class dinner ring from Clemson University, where we take our ring ceremonies just as seriously as our graduation
ceremony.

What’s your favorite decor style?

I am deeply in love with mid-century modern and Scandinavian design. There is something about the fluidity of the lines, the streamlined shapes, and warmth of the wood tones that bring a space together for me.

 

 

Ryan Kabeary, Warehouse and Installation

How did you join the Kibler & Kirch design family?

I think it was through admiration, mostly. The first time I stepped foot in a Kibler & Kirch design was when I was working for another designer moving furniture for her. I was instantly impressed by the Kibler & Kirch design style – warm and welcoming and appreciative of the pieces that they were placing in the home. That day I ended up moving a couple of the pieces belonging to Kibler and was instantly a fan-for-life. Pieces of such high quality craftsmanship can truly change how a space feels, especially when paired with wonderful designers like we have a Kibler & Kirch. It is a pleasure to be a part of such a wonderful team.

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

My greatest joy in life is feeling useful. This fact is at the center of why I think, if I were a piece of furniture, I would be a step ladder. A wooden step ladder. The kind that you tuck away in a corner, but a corner IN your home, not something cast away to a shed or garage. Something that remains useful even when it is not in use. Maybe you like to drape your favorite blankets over it’s worn rungs or you prop a piece of cherished art against its frame. No matter your preference, you are always happy to know where it is when you need it most.

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

A guitar that was given to me by a friend. Her name is Rita – the guitar, not the friend. She has been a trusted confidant I have called on countless times, and I look forward to the days that have me calling on her again. I also celebrate the idea that she and my kids may create wonderful things together one day.

What’s your favorite decor style?

Kibler & Kirch. The way I feel when I am in a Kibler & Kirch design space has never been matched. I enjoy the “decor” that my family and I create for each other in our home, but I would rather
Kibler & Kirch did the space. That’s how I feel everywhere I go.

We had four founders: Rosina Kastelitz, Anita Evans, and Erica Hash & Jean Foster. The name Kibler & Kirch pays tribute to their families. Rosina’s Mother was a “Kirch” and Anita’s Mother was a “Kibler.” These are portraits of our namesakes: Grandma Kibler & Grandma Kirch.

 


 

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.
