Cindy Montgomery is a national renowned American designer, custom furniture maker, couture designer as well as the founder and creative force behind Montgomery Lane (A Luxury and Lifestyle Design Group). She has over 25 years experience specializing in curating luxury residential and commercial environments, designing custom architectural projects as well as crafting American-made bespoke furniture designs. Her attention to detail and approach to design is intricate, refined, and multi-faceted.

 

Cindy is known for her unique, luxury lifestyle-driven approach to design. Her worldwide travels, coupled with the expansive scope of her projects over the course of her career, have influenced her use of diverse materials, colors, textures, and shapes, all of which comes to life in her aesthetic visions. She has executed luxury design concepts for both large-scale companies, builders, investors and personal clients in San Antonio to Dallas, Minnesota, New York City as well as the Hamptons, throughout California, and more. Her work has also been well received worldwide, with clients in Germany, Barbados, Switzerland, London, Fiji, Singapore and Australia.

 

Cindy is designing and recently launched an artisanally crafted American-made furniture collection to include a division of Senior and Children’s furniture line, along with collaboration of talented Craftsmen, Artisans and Artists that have been hand picked by her.  Ready-to-buy pieces as well as custom one-of-a-kind designs, will be available for purchase through her carefully curated online (STUDIO M STORE). Her goal: to tap into the expertise and versatility of local “Made in America” artists while also offering expertly engineered ‘green’ custom furniture especially designed with her clients in mind. Her vision transforms spaces and creates aesthetic experiences that are inspiring as they are functional.

 

Her expansive entrepreneurial background has also helped elevate the luxurious experiences she creates for her clients. Previously, she was a National Designer / Consultant at a major national retail brand, and as a result, helped financially resurrect their business from poor performing to high revenue status. Over the course of her career, she also launched and sold a very successful business venture a national franchise, (a high-end real estate staging company), of which she owned, operated and was number one in sales and design for 13 years. Her achievements won her national yearly recognition and awards. Her designs have been extensively featured on various shows on both the HGTV and DIY Networks, reaching over 11 million viewers each week, one airing for 3 years and another 16 episodes. She has been published in Smart Money, Bloomberg, many magazines and periodicals.

 

Presently, along with Montgomery Lane, Cindy also owns and operates Stage By Design LLC, a national luxury real estate staging business that she has operated since 1997.

 

Due to high demand for her creative vision Cindy was asked to develop and design an exclusive couture fashion line as well as a custom furniture collection for a renowned actress and the residence she will be filming in that will be showcased in a movie on the Hallmark Channel in December 2019.
