Lisa Dunlap, ASID, CID, brings over 25 years of professional experience in the field of interior
design to The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in 1983. She has been a professional
member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) since 1987 when she earned her
National Council for Interior Design Qualifications Certificate, which was soon followed by her
certification as a professional interior designer by ASID. Lisa’s early career included participation in
many aspects of the design industry including numerous Pasadena Showcase Houses of Design.
She served as a member of the board of directors of the ASID's Los Angeles Chapter and currently
serves on the board of directors of the Santa Clarita Valley Boy's and Girl's Club Foundation.
Over the years she has successfully completed design projects ranging from small to large private
residences, executive office spaces as well as hospitality installations including Six Flags Magic
Mountain and North Ranch Country Club. She joined Erika Brunson Design Associates in 1989,
and was able to expand her talents by creating sophisticated residences and custom reproduction
furniture for high-profile international clientele, and was recognized as the principal in charge of all
aspects of her well-known furniture line specializing in reproduction furnishings.
With the formation of Tesori Designs, Inc. in 2006, Lisa seized the opportunity to draw on her
extensive experience, eye for stylish design and team of talented artisans to create a comprehensive
and ever-growing line of fine furnishings inspired by popular 20th century designs. In an effort to
give back in a meaningful way, a portion of Tesori's sales are donated to Homes for Our Troops, a
national organization that provides retrofitted housing to our nation's wounded veterans.
Tesori means treasures and bringing treasured pieces to the design trade is Tesori's mission.
