Red Door Home Living opened its doors to the public October 19, 2013, but that is hardly the beginning of Red Door’s story. Created and owned by husband and wife team of Dan & Lori Lee, Red Door Home Living evolved from entrepreneurial passion and award winning interior design talent.
After completing her Interior Design degree in Los Angeles, Lori spent her formative years doing commercial design work in Los Angeles, before settling in Alberta. Combining a mix of private and public employment experiences, Lori was able to execute her interior design skills on many high profile projects: Alberta Legislature, Capital Health, Church of Latter Day Saints (Regina Temple), and many restaurant and office restoration projects. Over the years, Lori started adding residential projects to her portfolio and discovered that she so loved the personal engagement involved in residential renovations that she started her own company. After working in senior management for many years, her husband Dan decided to leave the corporate world and join Lori in starting Red Door Renovations & Design in 2012. After the first 5 or 6 renovation projects, Lori noticed a common trend evolving. Many clients would hire her after completing the renovation to help them select new furniture for their home. Although there were plenty of stores offering good quality furniture in the Calgary market, Lori was frustrated with the lack of selection available. Specifically, many of the stores offered the same or too similar of products. Nothing out there seemed to be different. After a lot of research and thought, Dan & Lori decided to create their own entity to address this problem. And so, Red Door Home Living was born and is now laying its claim in the Calgary market by offering mid to high end transitional and contemporary furniture that is stylishly different.
It doesn’t quite stop there, Dan & Lori have also continued their renovation business through Red Door Renovations & Design. Within Red Door’s design centre a qualified interior design team can help with everything from furniture selection and space planning, to the full renovation process from start to finish.
