Meet Tastemaker Lisa Mende

A vibrant force in the design world!

Lisa Mende Global Lighting Tastemaker

The one-two punch is just as valid outside the boxing ring as it is in it, especially when the maxim describes a tastemaker who exudes both intelligence and beauty. Lisa Mende lights up a room when she walks in but it’s quickly clear this is one smart cookie! She describes her work, which she accomplishes under her Lisa Mende Design umbrella, as being “bold and modern but rooted in tradition.” She’s been emboldening interiors for over two decades—mixing vintage pieces and antiques with modern classics and original art along the way.

Meet Lisa Mende of Lisa Mende Design

The allied member of ASID is also a member of the Interior Design Society (IDS) and Withit (the Women’s Leadership Development Network). Her vibrant social media presence and the popularity of her blog have made her a dynamo on the design scene. At trade shows and market events, it’s rare when she isn’t surrounded by fans. Lisa is a respected speaker, tapped for gigs during High Point Market, ASID Conferences and the Design Bloggers Conference.

She was named by Charlotte Living Magazine as one of Charlotte’s Top 10 Interior Designers in 2015. She has been a Style Spotter during High Point Market three times, as well as an ambassador for the La Cienegia Legends Event in 2014. Stylistically, Lisa explains that she harkens back to her southern roots to create custom interiors centered around family life, tradition, and heritage. Her portfolio includes a vast range of projects from historic preservation to new construction.

This vibrant force in the design world chose the Cone Wall light by Werner Aisslinger for B.lux as her favorite of our fixtures, calling it “unique and sculptural,” and adding, “The milky white translucent porcelain is sure to give it a soft glow wherever it is installed.”

Global Lighting practices curatorial rigor when sourcing luxury lighting from Europe and technological innovation by bringing each fixture distributed in North America into UL compliance.
