behind the name

Lester Katz

Lester Katz

Prior to forming LK Design, Lester was known for being one of the best hair colorists in Washington, DC. Lester owned and operated salons and day spas in Austin, Texas, Washington, DC and Stonington, Connecticut from the mid 1980s to the early 2000s.

Lester Katz graduated summa cum laude from Watkins College of Art and Design in Nashville, Tennessee with a BFA in Interior Design. He has been creating exquisite interiors for both residential and commercial projects since then.

For the first two years in the interior design profession, Lester Katz headed up the commercial interior design department for H. Micheal Hindman Architects in Brentwood, Tenessee. While working at the architecture firm, Lester lead an effort to get himself and eight of the eleven architects at the firm to be LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) accredited.

testimonials

“LK Design’s principal, Lester Katz, listens to his clients closely to determine their goals and preferences for their project. This attention to the client allows Mr. Katz to take his extensive knowledge of design factors and to propose plans that achieve the client’s aims. His knowledge includes more than colors, materials, textures and layout; Mr. Katz understands the work necessary to execute a project and its cost. Most importantly, Mr. Katz and his LK Design team uniquely devise interior solutions that enhance one’s home and its value.”

-Dale Krane

“Lester has a wonderful eye for color, style and list of contractors. He made picking almost our entire homes new colors easy. His style is universal to the masses. We have had a variety of friends and family to visit and no matter their age or background they complement our home. Thank you, Lester, for helping make our house our home.”

-Drew M

“Lester is a creative designer. He assisted us in downsizing residences. He was able to select what stays and what was to be sold. He handled the entire move down to placing the art on the wall. He is also fun to work with”

– Bev Maurer

“Lester Katz has an elegant demeanor that comes out in all of his work. I’ve seen many of his projects and then asked him to help with a few pieces of furniture that had seen better days from pet wear and general age. They turned out to be even better than in their original state with the gorgeous fabrics, custom covers and pillows. Top craftsmanship, fabric choices, stuffing, trim etc. More than satisfied – I”m very happy.”

-Stacy Simon

“When people walk into our home, the word most commonly used is “stunning!” and we owe this response to the design genius of Lester Katz. Lester planned and oversaw the complete remodel of the entire 4500 square foot house–from tiles, paint colors, to major structural changes–and then did a complete interior design, even down to sketching out a twelve foot dining table that he then had manufactured specifically for us. In three decades of home ownership and working with various designers, no one has or will surpass Lester.”

-David Boyd: Kent Street Project

“Lester of LK Design is a consummate professional. He brings fresh thinking to the table consistent with your wants and needs. Additionally he is extremely patient – which is great for those of us who have a hard time making decisions. As far as designers go in Omaha, there is no one better.”

-Danny Cohn

“I had a decent idea of what I wanted to do, but no idea how to pull it together. Lester helped with a lighting plan, selection of materials and colors to give everything a cohesive feel. I believe he helped make the most of the budget by allocating money where we got the best value, spending more we needed and not where we didn’t.
While I did not specifically do my kitchen/living/dining remodel to improve the resale value of the house, my new appraisal shows value well over what I spent. The money I invested with Lester was well spent, indeed.”

-Dan Marburg

“Working with Lester is such a refreshing experience. His vision has no limitations, which is such a pleasure to work with as an artist brought in to turn those ideas into reality through hand painted finishes. The amount of detail and thought that goes into the project from start to finish is truly admirable. His versatility is such a positive attribute for his clients.”

-SLJ Paint and Decorative Finishes

“I have worked with various designers in Omaha, and I have never been more pleased with my home since I have been working with Lester Katz!!! I find one of Mr. Katz’s best qualities is that he LISTENS to his clients, and makes it his job to learn what they need and want. He incorporates his client’s lifestyle with his creativity, and the end result is perfection!
I actually find myself looking for spaces in my home that really don’t need any updating, just so Mr. Katz can work his magic. His knowledge about not only design, but spacial relations is impressive. He makes remodeling a pleasure, not a chore. He has an ease about him, he is very easy to communicate with, and welcome’s the clients opinions and ideas. When you work with Lester, it is more of a collaboration, than anything else. Lester Katz is a master designer!”

-Michelle Morrison

“I am a Concierge, and Lester and his team have done a lot of work here at our development. He and his team have always been courteous and professional. I have heard from a number of residents who love his work, and have yet to hear anything negative. I enjoy seeing Lester and his team working here, for I know it will be a great experience for our Resident, but they will absolutely love the end product.”

-Concierge at Counterparts

“We met Lester a couple of years ago and have worked with him on a handful of projects. All have exceeded our expectations! He listened to what we wanted and designed each space perfectly – keeping them very livable in a house with little kids, but beautiful as well. He is extremely creative and has a great vision. We would highly recommend LK Design to anyone in Omaha looking for help to create a beautiful space.”

Lester was extremely knowledgeable, responsive to our concerns, exercised great judgment, and delivered the work at the promised time and price point. I would give him my highest recommendation for anyone looking for a outstanding design professional.”

“Lester Katz of LK Design has utilized our business, hutch, for client’s home as well as his own. hutch sells mid-century, modern furniture and decor in Omaha, NE. Lester is one of the best, if not the best, interior designers in the Midwest. His design knowledge, personality and execution are second to none. He is the go-to, no-brainer choice for design services in the Midwest. We recommend LK Design in the highest regard.”

-Hutch Furniture Store

“My fellow Houzzer came through big time. Hats off to Lester Katz for coming to my design rescue!

I needed a receiving warehouse in the Omaha, NE area zip code 68107. So I browsed through the Houzz community with that zip code and just reached out and called LK Design. Note: I really loved his “designed” projects shown! After explaining to Lester, who I was and how I found him he was a plethora of information. A load off my mind — that was easy!

We have since called the receiving warehouse and my client will have their sectional as promised delivered in Omaha.
THANKS AGAIN LK DESIGN Lester Katz !
From one designer to another You Rock!”
