Kara Mann is the founder and creative director of KARA MANN, the design firm she established in Chicago in 2005. In 2011, she expanded her firm to Manhattan, where she continues to work with an international roster of discerning clients and industry leaders on both residential and commercial projects. The New York Times describes her signature style, a balance of sophistication and edge, as “interiors with a subversive side.”
In addition to numerous residential projects, Mann is currently working on a major renovation and re-imaging of the boutique Talbott Hotel in Chicago. In addition, she recently launched a new line of furniture for the venerable American brand, Baker Furniture.
