"comfortable, sophisticated environment for everyday living"
Karen Cannata Riordan, President and Principal Designer of KCR Interiors LLC. I have a Bachelors of Arts in Merchandising and Business.After many years of working retail and assisting attorneys in several different law firms in Chicago, I decided to return to school and earn my Associates in Applied Science in Interior Design.In June 2007 I graduated and January 2008 began my journey by opening my design firm KCR Interiors LLC.
I have always been creative with textiles, and for a long time didn’t know how to incorporate my art and passion into a career.I have found my passion, and it comes in the art of redesigning each interior space to reflect each individual lifestyle.I want to share my expertise and passion with you to bring comfort, sophistication and function to each room of your home.My enthusiasm is evident at our first meeting.
My inspiration comes from a plethora of materials including an art piece, a special chair or pattern on a beautiful fabric.Your needs and wants are our priority when designing your interiors and the design is based on who you have living with you, how your space will be used, your activities in the room, and what mood you want to convey.
In designing your space, we use an array of high end resources and pay close attention to the details to complete each room. Every space needs organization and storage and we have the perfect solution with custom built-in cabinetry to coordinate and fit every interior room.All our resources are qualified professionals with a high regard for detail, efficiency and neatness.

Accessories are an important and sometimes overlooked item.We have a workroom on site to assure quality and timely delivery of pillows, table runners, placemats, table clothes or side table skirting. I also work with qualified, professional workrooms to complete larger projects such as Window Treatments, Custom Bedding, etc.These accessories add that last detail to enhance your finished project.
