Meet Christie Rumsey

Design Consultant

  • When did you join Lawrance Furniture? How did you come to work here? 

I’ve wanted to work for Lawrance since I was a little girl. I’m a 5th generation San Diegan with deep local artistic roots. For over 20 years I have helped to curate multiple galleries and retail spaces as well as hundreds of homes and businesses through local art and furniture placement. I have a Bachelor’s degree from SDSU in Applied Arts with an emphasis in Painting and Printmaking/ Gallery Exhibition Design.

  • Why do you enjoy working at Lawrance? What’s your favorite thing about working in the furniture/design industry? 

I love working with the team/family here at Lawrance. Everyone I work with is kind, helpful and highly motivated to provide exceptional customer service and design. I prefer and generally have chosen to work for local San Diego Companies. Lawrance is the ultimate local company for design sales. I am proud to work here. 

My favorite thing about working in the design industry is making connections with clients and being able to offer my strengths as a visual artist to develop designs that suit not only their daily needs but the needs of their emotions. christier favorite

  • What’s your favorite piece at Lawrance? 

Currently, I am enamoured with the amazing new Italian collection: The free-standing options of this collection and the juxtaposition of modern design with organic elements is right up my alley. 

  • How would you describe your personal style? 

I love clean lines, color and to create a visceral experience in my designs. I definitely have a sophisticated earthy vibe. I like to add in visual and actual texture. I tend to reach towards pops of yummy organic pieces that make me swoon. 

  • Who’s your favorite designer? 

Hands down, Pamela Shamshiri

  • What’s your favorite color? 

GREEN! If I could use it in every space, I likely would as it makes me and most people feel good. That and a sea glass blue-green. Which I guess is also green. 

  • List 2-3 fun facts about you. 

I am a mother of 2 humans, 2 chihuahuas, 1 cat and a leopard gecko. We also have a pack of coyotes that call our neighborhood home lately. 

I am a trained fine art painter and printmaker

I enjoy outdoor activities and spend my free time hiking and camping.
