Celebrated interior designer, Laura Umansky – President and Creative Director of Laura U Interior Design – has become a sought-after talent for her bold aesthetic and polished, livable interiors. The Texas-born designer’s influence extends far beyond the company’s Houston headquarters and her portfolio represents a diverse roster of clients. Her Classically Current© style incorporates clean lines with striking details to bridge the gap between high design and practical living. As a mother of two, Laura’s ability to strike a balance between luxury and livability is anchored in her quest for a space that is chic, comfortable and equally functional.

Laura has been drawn to the creative arts since childhood. In her elementary years, she swapped coloring books for sketch pads, drew floor plans and rearranged furniture in her family home. Laura went on to pursue a Bachelor of Arts degree in Studio Art from the University of Texas at Austin and cultivate a continued passion for photography. She honed her technical skills further by earning a Master’s degree in Architecture at the University of Houston. Post-grad, Laura joined a resort design group, where she gained specialized experience designing luxury vacation homes. In 2006, the Central Texas-native marked a personal milestone when she launched her own company before reaching the age of 30.

Laura has been honored with prestigious awards, including Best of Houzz; National Gold Listfrom LUXE Interiors + Design; numerous ASID awards for outstanding interiors, including Best of Show 2012; Leader in Design from the Houston Design Center; and Design Star on the Rise from the Decorative Center of Houston.
