A good company is only as good as the people it employs. Case in point: House of Funk’s senior designer Samantha Lanza. Self-described as having a “transitional” style that encompasses different periods and décor trends, Sam has spearheaded design projects of all scope and size during her time at House of Funk, and on the weekends, volunteers at the Hudson Valley Humane Society. The company wouldn’t be what it is today without her tenacity, drive, and attention to detail (her love of dogs, Mexican food, and great-fitting jeans are added bonuses).
House of Funk spaces that Samantha Lanza designed
Sam graduated from FIT with a Bachelors of Fine Art in Interior Design in 2009. In March of 2010, she found her way to House of Funk (then known as Funk Design), starting first as an intern, then working her way up to assistant designer. A stint at O’Neil Langan Architects in Manhattan allowed Sam to hone her CAD skills and view design from an architect’s standpoint. In 2014, she returned to House of Funk, where she was recently promoted to senior designer. Big congratulations are in order, as is a never-ending thank you for all of her incredible work!
