sarah k. lippmann
Sarah is a native New Yorker with a commitment to environmental awareness. Her ultimate goal is to participate in creating a new model for urban living by cross-pollinating with designers, architects, planners and thinkers on issues of sustainability, to foster a network of local-to-global communities and a balanced existence with nature. She believes that creativity thrives within structure, that design solutions blossom while addressing future urban responsibility. It is possible to design innovative environmental solutions that reuse, recycle, and are sourced locally into elegant, unique and practical interiors.
From a very young age, her parents rented a station wagon once a month to drop off cans, bottles and paper at a recycling center under the bridge, before it was a city mandate. They taught her how not to be wasteful, and to understand the different manufacturing processes that products go through before they make it into our homes. Sarah learned how to live responsibly and with mindfulness in an urban environment.
She spent 17 years as a professional actor, with side projects in writing, music and photography. After switching careers, and receiving her MS in Interior Design from the Pratt Institute, her prior creative endeavors and environmental upbringing have served her well, informing and complimenting her design sensibility. Her life in the theater has given her an ease with people and difficult situations. This has translated into a keen ability to develop strong relationships with clients, as well as enjoying being a member of a larger creative team.
