Morris Lare is a Des Moines, Iowa, residential interior design firm offering a bespoke service and design experience rooted in collaboration, kindness, and creativity. We develop relationships with our clients through thoughtful conversations that build trust, understanding, and a shared vision in order to create beautiful, intentional, complete spaces that are a true reflection of our client’s style.
Interior design is a tough business, and it’s no place for egos. If you want a diva for an interior designer, you have come to the wrong place!
We can’t do this alone, and we don’t pretend we can. By working in concert with our clients, contractors, and vendors, we deliver exceptional results.
With over twenty years of combined experience in the Central Iowa home industry, we have built a team of qualified and dedicated vendors and trades that we rely upon to make us look good. We value our trade partners because without them, we couldn’t do what we do best.
When you hire us, we ask you to place enormous trust in us, and we promise to honor that faith throughout your project and our relationship with each other. We pledge to advocate for you and act in your best interest.
Sometimes that may mean telling you things you don’t want to hear. But, we believe that honest and open communication – on all sides – is critical to a successful working relationship.
We always start with function and follow with aesthetics. If a design doesn’t work (literally or figuratively), then it doesn’t matter how beautiful it is. There are a lot of pretty pictures floating around on Pinterest that aren’t very practical for every day life.
We begin every project not with inspiration photos but by asking how the space is going to be used 90% of time – as in how you live day to day. Obviously, the end result will be beautiful, but it has to function for the long haul to meet our strict standards.
Morris Lare designs complete rooms or homes from start to finish – pre-planning to design drawings, furnishings to accessories and art.
Each individual project has a unique set of requirements, but we follow the same process every time, which allows us to deliver our clients the best results and experience.
We absolutely love what we do and are always excited about new projects. You can learn more here about our design process.
