THE TALE OF DOUG ZANDER
“I didn’t create Zander’s. Zander’s created itself. It was a natural product of my own desire to compose personalized projects for individual clients. My process of hand-selecting and cultivating creative, inspired minds happened over a long period of time, as I carefully surrounded myself with the best of emerging designers.”
From this process grew the talented design ensemble that Zander’s has today. Doug’s team of designers helps define and distinguish Zander’s Interiors, each member a unique asset, yet all sharing a passion for elegance, creativity and customer attention.
“In the hands of our designers, a blank space becomes a canvas for creativity. We view interior design as an art form for the home with incredible possibilities.”
“When the colors, textures and patterns are all in conversation; when the elements are captivatingly cohesive; when a client’s senses are heightened and delighted; when they find themselves longing to linger…then they have experienced a room. And it is the fun of designing this experience into existence, uniquely to each client, which brings me the delight and variety in every day.”
Close involvement with his clients is a deep value, and having a hand in every aspect of their project is the Doug signature. From the wall color, to the tiling pattern, to hanging the mirror or choosing the accent pillows- Doug knows that no detail is insignificant.
“To ignore the little details is to leave a piece absent from a puzzle. The little details are what make the larger details so attractive, and having an eye for the small things becomes imperative to the success of a completed design.”
His stylistic vision has summoned him around the nation, engaging a vast array of clients. Despite his varied projects, from charming hotels, to historic renovations and elegant getaways, Doug’s home base remains firmly rooted in Madison, Wisconsin. With design achievements featured in BRAVA Magazine and Madison Magazine, Doug continues to inspire his clients, enrich their homes with his talent and vision, and take absolute delight in the entire process.
