Get to Know our Founding Agent, Daan De Raedt
David + Lauren
In 2008, local interior designer Lauren Liess began documenting her client projects and inspiration online through her blog, Pure Style Home. Before long, she had garnered an online following of like-minded home enthusiasts drawn to her grounded take on aspirational interiors. In the time since, Lauren has established herself as an influential voice in the design industry and the founder of a globally-recognized firm that she runs alongside her husband, David. Her elevated, organic designs have been featured by countless publications as well as in her own best-selling books: Feels Like Home, Habitat, and Down To Earth. David and Lauren have launched their own e-commerce shop for artisan home wares, Lauren Liess & Co., along with multiple product lines with major retailers. HGTV's "Best House on the Block" follows their renovation and design work in their native Virginia. Lauren and David's passion for creating timeless spaces for gathering is continually inspired by their life at home with their five children, three dogs, and chickens.
