 Look. At. This. Chair. How could anyone not want one? I immediately fell in love with the  Archibald  from Haworth Collection. Poltrona Frau leather, hand stitching, and polished metal accents. It’s top notch and an experience in itself.

  MY PATH IS MY OWN.   In Kindergarten I began building houses with Legos according to plans I rudimentarily drew. I wanted to be an architect. I fell in love with the notion that a mere thought could eventually be built and occupied.  As time went on my plans became more elaborate and I ditched Legos for Basswood models. It was my passion, my hobby, and what gave me joy. A few apprenticeships later I found myself in an Architectural Studies program at UIUC.  Midway through my undergrad I noticed a shift. I wasn’t as excited about designing a building as I was to develop the presentation boards and drawings that I would communicate my ideas through. It was an art in itself – ink on Strathmore or Mylar, grandiose renderings, an articulated story to convey meaning in both words and graphics.  I graduated and found myself living in Arizona working for an architecture firm where I detailed fire stations and retail buildings. Not fun. Through a series of fortunate events, I was given an opportunity to develop a marketing program and department for them – focusing on winning work through proposals and collateral. Marrying my appreciation for the built environment with my strengths in communicating stories was a game-changer.  I never looked back. 15+ years later (gulp), I’ve worked for architects, contractors, engineers, manufacturers, and furniture dealers doing what I absolutely love. I’ve grown in my career and spread wings wide and far to fuel the desire that was always there, while staying connected to my training as an architect.

  PROUD TO CARRY THE KAYHAN FLAG.   I love a challenge, and so do my colleagues. We are a small but mighty group that goes head-to-head with the behemoths in the market.  We win some. And the ones we lose out on, we leave a lasting impression.  I love surprising people with the Kayhan story - a team that has an average tenure of 17 years, a client base that includes Fortune 100 companies, and a portfolio that spans 48 states and 26 countries.  We are a dark horse and persevere because in the end, hard work and integrity takes all.
