Who We Are

Vanessa Burt

Vanessa Burt began her Interior Design career with Winford Lindsay in 1986.  Since then, the company has changed names three times and has evolved into one of the top firms in Georgia with Vanessa as the lead for the Interior Design Department.  Vanessa graduated from the University of Georgia with a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree majoring in Interior Design.  Working as an Interior Designer with a full service A&E firm allows Vanessa to work directly on a daily basis with architects and engineers through all phases of a project, giving her a unique perspective and understanding of all disciplines which enables her to better coordinate and refine the Interior Design produced by the LPB Interiors department.  Vanessa loves to spend her free time relaxing and having fun with her son and their two labs.  Vanessa’s main focus is on the essential or basic aspects of the Interior Design… “The details are not the details.  They make the design.”  Charles Eames.

The goal of a designer is to listen, observe, understand, sympathize, empathize, synthesize, and glean insights that enable him or her to make the invisible visible.
