Meet the KJL Team
Kathy J. LaMontagne
Kathy LaMontagne opened KJL Interior Design in 1991. A graduate of Stanford University, Kathy worked in the San Francisco Bay Area before moving her practice to Oregon. Kathy is passionate about the work of interior design and is honored to create interior spaces that are exciting, innovative and practical. Style and preferences are unique to each client, so she works as your advocate to embody that vision. Kathy is a problem solver and especially loves tackling projects that are outside the norm…developing creative solutions that exceed expectations – seeking that “wow” factor that makes all the hard work worthwhile.
Samantha grew up in Eugene and showed a flair for design from a very young age. She purchased KJL from Kathy in 2019 after receiving her degree in Interior Design at Oregon State and completing her MBA.
Whether you want to remodel, refresh your interiors, furnish a new home or create a commercial space, Samantha’s intuitive vision will bring beauty and innovation to your project. She believes every space has it’s own style, function, and challenges and that every client deserves a meaningful and unique design that is tailored specifically to their needs.
Karen began working at KJL in April, 2010. Her family moved to Eugene, OR from Atlanta, GA, where she was the Executive Assistant to the owner of the largest home builder in the southeast. Karen has two loves – home interiors and gardening. She is especially fond of mid-century modern homes and furnishings.
Karen enjoys spending her working hours with Kathy and just loves being around furniture, fabric, wall coverings, tile and flooring. She thinks Kathy is very articulate and does a fantastic job with her client’s variety of needs.
