An interior designer, according to Mary Padgitt, is more than just a person with talent and good taste; she must be an artist. And that describes Mary perfectly. She uses her affinity for fine art when designing beautiful home spaces and developing rich color palettes for the customers of Sofa Designers. Along with that eye for pleasing aesthetics, Mary is passionate about getting to know her clients in order to bring their dreams to life.

One of Mary’s specialties is helping customers design custom furnishings for their homes. She is a knowledgeable contact at Sofa Designers when it comes to selecting unique upholstery, finish and leg designs for seating, dining and bedroom pieces. But Mary goes a step further than that – she has the ability to sketch and design fully customized pieces. Her experience and talent helps homeowners select just the right upholstery and other options to blend custom pieces seamlessly into existing décor, bringing unity to any interior design, no matter how challenging.

Mary’s experience in the interior design field began by earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with an emphasis in interior design and painting from Washington State University. After obtaining her degree, she taught graphic design courses at various colleges in the San Diego area and also developed class curriculum for Cuyamaca College. She is currently a member of the American Society of Interior Designers.

Mary lives and works in San Diego. In her spare time she enjoys creating large scale acrylic paintings. She simply can’t do without her family, her painting and her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Violet, who acts as a mascot of sorts for the store as well as Mary’s “design assistant.” Mary is an active member of the King Charles Spaniel Club of San Diego. She enjoys hanging out in the “artsy” enclaves of Kensington, La Jolla and North Park on days off.

For help from a professional who can bring your ideas to life with effortless artistry, Mary is an excellent choice who can help completely furnish and design your interior space exactly to your taste.
